Beans’ latest was made in collaboration with Lewis & Kitty Durham (of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis fame) who give it an upbeat vintage 50’s rock’n’roll flavour and will be performing in Beans’ band for his upcoming tour.
#360RAW12 on 7th at The Lending Room – Fudge, Sir Curse, The Harriets and Teeff
“… Unhinged seems to be what Fudge do best, their laddish charm and punk rock attitude instigating the chaos they need for them to feel content. This is indie-rock gone rogue; something in their generic formula went awfully wrong in the most brilliant way to create this monster …” YORKSHIRE POST
“… Totally barnstorming set by the extraordinary Sir Curse. Now that’s an object lesson on how to end a set; Sir Curse positively storming it at #360RAW tonight …” TOM ROBINSON | BBC 6 MUSIC
“… To me, their song Television sounds like a lost classic recording from CBGBs-era New York, which in my book is high praise indeed …” TOM ROBINSON | BBC 6 MUSIC
“… Absolutely incredible …” BBC INTRODUCING
