Have a 60s Halloween at the Fuzz-O-Ween Ball
Get busy with the fuzzness this Halloween! Courtesy of live sets by:
Following last years’ sold-out London show the ‘Gurus Of Garage Grunge’ are back for more fun! Originally founded by singer/guitarist Rudi Protrudi in New York’s Lower East Side, their classic songs ‘Ward 81’, ‘Bad News Travels Fast’ and ‘She’s Wicked’, plus their many trashy versions of ‘60s songs like ‘Gloria’, ‘Jack The Ripper’ and ‘1-2-5’ keep the fans coming back for more. 2010 LP ‘Preaching To The Perverted’ saw them back at their musical best. An unmissable stage show means we’re all in for one hell of a headline performance.
THE GRAVEDIGGER FIVE – FEAT. LEIGHTON KOIZUMI
Led by Leighton Koizumi the GV were one of the most influential garage revival acts of the 1980s, signing to Greg Shaw’s Bomp imprint and releasing the classic ‘All Black and Hairy’ album. The group never made it over to the UK to perform live…until now! Leighton has enlisted the help from four fellow fuzzmen – Fabio (The Lysergics), Fernando (The Lysergics), Alberto (MFC Chicken) and Hiro (Screaming Tea Party) – to form a band and perform the ‘All Black and Hairy’ songs live, plus other favorites like ‘It’s Spooky’. Don’t miss the insanity!!!
Up to now we’ve known her as The Fuzztones keyslady and former Bonniwell Music Machine organist, but also Lana Loveland has gotten a band together and recently released ‘Order To Love’, an album of ‘60s West Coast vibes. It’s out now on Groovie Records. This will be their first UK performance!
THE HIGHER STATE
The Higher State, from Sandgate in Kent, formed in 2005 and feature former members of The Embrooks and The Mystreated. They play authentic 60′s west coast sounding original songs and are currently preparing to release their third studio album. Influences include Love, The Byrds, The Buffalo Springfield, The 13th Floor Elevators, and many obscure garage and psych singles.
Here we have a two-man garage outfit from Southern Sweden with Lee Tea (The Exciters/The Branded) on guitar and howls and Daz Trash (Skitzo) on voodoo drums and screams. They both hooked up with each other in Malmö and later played a Johnny Cash tribute together. They have released two 45s of grave-robbing garage blues trash and are the perfect kick-off to our scary party!
PLUS! Afterparty til 3am with DJs Phil Istine, Andy Roseaman (Mojo To Go Go, Brighton) & Arthur Scott (Dirty Water) spinning garage-punk, freakbeat and other assorted rockin’ trash 45s.
