01. Tell us about the name Fuzz4Freaks and the new event in Brighton this year 2014?
As the Mod weekender in Brighton grew over the last decade the need for a separate venue playing fuzzy sounds become apparent as tickets for the Komedia were snapped up by the Mods. We used to host these sounds in the Studio Bar at Komedia but folks of the paisley persuasion couldn’t get in last year.
02. You have some great young live bands playing?
We have three great young live bands from all over the UK. On Saturday young Psych band from Birmingham, the Exploding Sound Machine are getting a great reputation and have recently played a local festival with legends Donovan and Arthur Brown with glowing reviews. Check out their interview here for a better idea on what to expect from them.
I discovered local Brighton lads the Dials driving home listening to Radio 2 at 3am after Zoo Zoo one evening and heard this song which sounded like the early Floyd. The song finished and the DJ said that is a track from the Dials new album. The next day I got up and googled the band and found out they were from Brighton so it was fate that they should play, I am really excited to see these guys. Check their interview out on here also.
The Hypnotic Eye will add plenty of fuzz to the party proceedings with strong originals and some choice covers. All the bands have products available over the weekend and we recommend you save a few quid and support these acts.
03. What about the Venue?
I planned to use it last year but it never worked out. As soon as I saw it I was sure it would be perfect for this event. It’s a basement venue with low ceiling, wooden dancefloor, stage and well stocked bar at reasonable prices for a club. It’s reminds me very much of a Mousetrap but with a live music set up as well.
04. Can we expect a full on trippy lightshow?
You can expect kaleidoscope visuals and fog in the true psychedelic tradition.
05. What kinds of sounds will we hear? A top 5 perhaps to wet our whistles?
I picked a good cross section of DJ’s who all have their own style, cover a wide variety of underground sounds and will make everyone happy. Expect the party choons alongside new discoveries as well as the current in demand biggies.
Check out some of the other DJ’s profiles on here and our facebook event page will have regular songs posted HERE!
Here are 5 choons you can expect to hear from me over the weekend.
Black Lightening Light – The Shy Guys
Polka Dotted Eyes – The Snaps
High Flying Around – Legay
Now I Know – Met & Zonder
Lucifer Sam – Pink Floyd
06. Where can folks get their tickets from?
We got 200 tickets up for grabs each night and almost half have gone already. You can get your tickets HERE!
07. What is the current ‘Fuzz’ scene like and how has it changed?
There is a great mix of youngsters and scene stalwarts, always a friendly vibe and exciting times. Music is always amazing!
08. What kind of clothes will folks be displaying? Will it be quite ‘Dandy’?
No dress codes as some folks just dig the sounds and not the entire lifestyle but there will no doubt be plenty of dandy’s and dolls strutting their stuff.
09. Why Brighton and why this particular weekend?
It’s a great town easily accessible from all over Europe with great restaurants, a very continental café culture and plenty of accommodation. You can also travel back to nearby London throughout the night by train.
10. Any advice on places to stay?
visitbrighton.com for a range of accommodation to suit your budget. There is a student residence at Sussex University a short bus ride or taxi ride from the centre with a variety of rooms available from £18-£35 per person a night some rooms are also en suite HERE!
11. What about daytime things to do?
We have free daytime events both days from 1-5pm at the Volks with a mix of 60’s sounds, a market and live music on Saturday afternoon. Brighton is also great for shopping check out the various clothes and record shops in the lanes including the fab Jump The Gun. You also have all the tourist attractions like the Pier, Brighton Eye, Miniature railway and copious great restaurants all over town.
