&U&I (BLAKFISH) -
The demise of UK post-punk band, Blakfish, came to an end at the start of 2010 when co-vocalist, Sam Manville parted ways with the band. This came as a great shock to members and fans alike as the guys were on tour round Europe at the time with Biffy Clyro. Since then the remaining members – Thomas Peckett, Richard Lee and Wiz – decided to not let the end of a 10-year career affect their ambitions.
Fast-forward to June 2010 and the trio have finished work on their debut EP with new project, &U&I. The five track EP stands highly against their peers and marks the beginning of a career which will see them go it alone as a trio. The EP is as honest it it comes. Fueled by frustration and anxiety that has taunted them since the start of the year, this is out-right one of the most honest debut’s the UK has produced for a long time.
Supports for the evening come no better than two of Brighton's best live bands; THE DEAL WAS FOR THE DIAMOND and JUMPING SHIPS.
