Fuzz Club celebrates it's TENTH BIRTHDAY this year and the first of many big arsed birthday shows comes your way in the form of...
Coming back to what they know and love, friends of Fuzz Club, BRAKES (an amalgam of British Sea Power, The Electric Soft Parade and The Tenderfoot) bring the all-night disco part and then some.
Hurling pineapples into the crowd alongside their own take on catchy power pop, Brakes never fail to impress when on stage. With new album, their third - "Touchdown" - coming out on the 20th April through legendary label Fat Cat, the band will look to mix things up with new material alongside Fuzz favourites like "All Night Disco Party", "Beautific Visions", "Porcupine or Pineapple" and punctuation classic "Comma Comma Comma Full Stop".
Not to be missed!
“We are fundamentally responsible for the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America, yes,” say Brakes. “If it hadn’t been for our 5-second epic song “Cheney” (lyrics: “Cheney, Cheney, Cheney, stop being such a Dick”), then it is without a doubt that McCain would’ve won, and died, and Sarah Palin would have become President and Ruler of the Known Universe by April 2009." from Brakes Bio

Long time friends of Fuzz and massive fans of Brakes, SLOW CLUB return to the Foundry stage with their inimitable showcase of all things ramshackle folk-pop. With an album due this year and an appearance at SXSW, Charles and Becky will be looking to make it a 2000 and fine '09.
