Back with a (Big) Bang - Fuzzbox reform!

I’ve had a thing for Fuzzbox since 1986. Hell, what red blooded hunk a hunk o’ burnin’ love wouldn’t eh? We’ve Got a Fuzzbox and We’re Gonna Use It started off as scuzzy punk pop tarts before emerging, butterfly like, as Fuzzbox and conquering the charts with a trio of glorious tunes ‘Self’, ‘International Rescue’ and ‘Pink Sunshine’. Then, for reasons unknown, they imploded. Ka-boom! Vix did some TV work in the years that followed then formed the equally poptastic ‘Vix and the Kix’ in 2007. Now, as if from nowhere, comes the news that Fuzzbox (the original line-up) has reformed and will be playing a short tour in May. Wonders will never cease. Whether we’ll get the scuzzy version, the pop version or a little of each remains to be seen, but it’ll remind the world of just what an underrated and utterly loveable band they were (in all their incarnations). Thunderbirds are GO!
