Nobody Joined Us So We Died

11 december 2008

5 Years
4 Keyboard Players
3 Tour Relate Injuries
2 Transit Vans
1 Decent Album

Like a pet that you love dearly but have kept alive maybe a little longer than was decently humane it's time to put this poor little doggy to sleep. Yes folks, on Friday January 23rd 2009 the NME vet will be putting down stuffy/the fuses at The Windmill in Brixton but not before the little bugger has one last attempt at gnawing your arm off with a "best of set" of songs.

If your IQ is so minimal you were unable to read between the lines, it is with more than a modicum of regret that the band have decided to call it a day. We had a go, probably didn't try quite as hard as we should have but we had a great deal of fun doing what we did (bar meeting The Paddingtons (an even then their drummer was a true gent). Some of you may be a little upset to hear this news but I'm sure that all involved at s/tf HQ will be perusing other musical projects. So don't think of it as loosing a band, think of it as gaining 3-5 self indulgent solo projects.

Best of all, if you've been putting off coming to see the band play for the past 5 years (I mean, how full is your fucking diary, lightweight?) then this really is your last chance to see stuffy/the fuses. Honest, it's not one of those "cry for attention" splittings up (I'm looking at you "The" Verve).

Here are the details:

Friday January 23rd 2009
The Windmill Present
stuffy/the fuses last show on earth
+ guests TBC
The Windmill
22 Blenheim Gardens
London

The next stuffy/the fuses show will be on 23rd January 2018 when the band agree to reform (including longtime hold out Jon Fuse) for a one off gig at the Brixton Academy due to overwhelming financial offers as a result of being hailed as the main influence behind of one of the following bands.

Playtime Fontaine
The Birmingham School of Business School
Victor/Victoria
Oh no, I Crapped My Pants
Croydon Dangerous

See if you can guess which one and win the entire s/tf back catalogue on the format of the day. Competition entries submitted to evelknievel@stuffyandthefuses.co.uk to arrive by January 2nd 2018.

stuffy/the fuses support recent Club Fandango offshoot label, Cool For Cats, signings Fight Like Apes. Excellent news!

Thu 20th Windmill Brixton presents:

*Stuffy & The Fuses
*Fight Like Apes
*tbc
*tbc

STUFFY & THE FUSES (London)
Stuffy is a dummer. He's a good drummmer. That's probably why he sits at the front, which is also a goood place to see his bizarre facial expressions and gravity defying leaps as well as an anti-hero charm and some nifty manoeuvres with the sticks. Meanwhile the Fuses (Jen, Jon and Lucy) knock out some superb twisted pop as evidenced on their fine new album - 'Angels Are Ace - which was recorded at Abbey Road by a certain Steve Albini. www.myspace.com/stuffythefuses

FIGHT LIKE APES (Dublin)
One of the buzz bands in Ireland right now, female-fronted noisekids FLA return to London to blag up their debut single that's out on on Fierce Panda's little sister label, Cool For Cats. Ostensibly a new wave punk band, they however give a nod or two toward the likes of Sonic Youth, Pavement and My Bloody Valentine and then often steep the whole damn thing in synths and hot fuzz. In other words they're impossible to pin down and also very much ones to watch. www.myspace.com/fightlikeapesmusic -

The End of the Road team is back for their monthly knees up with live bands and DJs to keep the spirit of the festival going until September... book your tickets for the festival early to avoid disappointment. This month we're very excited about hosting the brilliant CONGREGATION, hailing from the New Cross bedsit scene looking like a couple of gangsters from the depression era, Congregation have lately been injecting the Blues and R&B genre with a heavy dose of class and soul. Benjamin Prosser (Slide Guitar, Bass drum) and Victoria Yeulet (vocals, leg bells) play the kind of raw, slinky and seductive blues that have the power to restore one's faith in the genre. Also playing are TELEGRAMS, most probably one of the best unheard of bands you'll ever see!!? Remember you saw them here first... + just confirmed STUFFY/THE FUSES. Doors open at 7pm and it's only £5 to join the party!

stuffy/the fuses of south london - friends since for ever but only just in a band together. first album "join me or die" almost recorded on his own by stuffy with Owen Turner (Magoo)but soon it brought together the fuses.

Been travelling the country (uk) upwards and downwards playing the songs and gaining radio appreciation from many including the late, great John Peel, Steve Lamacq and Marc "Lard" Reily (all courtersy of radio 1).

Recorded a session for the Peel show which was aired on Huw Stephen's new onemusic show. this was followed by the band entering the studio to record album *2 with steve albini (shellac mainmain and recorder of jesus lizard, pixies, mclusky amongst others). it sounds ace.
