To take us into the evening there will be a monthly selection of the most exciting local and touring bands playing such as The Underground Youth, Electric Eye, Younghusband, Gum Takes Tooth, 10,000 Russos, Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation, Chicos de Nazca, The Third Sound and some big hitters to be announced very soon.

To top it off we’ll keep the crowds sated with street food and free craft beer tastings and tutorials.

Entry to the label market is free and tickets to see the bands are £10-£12. For March’s event both rounds of early bird tickets are long gone, but there are still some GA tickets available here.

This is happening! Fuzz Club Festival at London Fields Brewhouse on the 13th & 14th of November, featuring THE KVB, CAMERA, THE TELESCOPES, 10,000 RUSSOS, NEW CANDYS, THROW DOWN BONES, THE MYRRORS , LOLA COLT , SONIC JESUS, MUGSTAR, THE CULT OF DOM KELLER, RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON, THE JANITORS, THE ORANGE REVIVAL, DEAD RABBITS, I hereby present the remaining five bands on this most illustrious of billings.

Of this concluding brood of acts, I have been humbled by the sensory overloading delectation, of all in the flesh bar The Orange Revival, whose recent ‘Futurecent‘ LP had me flapping at the prospect of beholding their live performance. ( In fairness to both The Cult Of Dom Keller and Dead Rabbits, my exposure to their delights were all too fleetingly brief at Eindhoven Psych Lab, and will be remedied in London).

A special mention also goes out to The Janitors, their EP release ‘Evil Doings Of An Evil Kind‘, which sometimes, “seems a thousand centuries ago”, kick-started this whole chromaticism chapter in my life – for that resurrection I will be forever in their debt.
