GIG NEWS: FUDGE. play Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds on 25th May


Leeds four-piece FUDGE. – with that crucial full stop at the end – have announced a headline show at LEEDS HYDE PARK BOOK CLUB on SATURDAY 25th MAY; a venue that, with its 150-ish capacity, is clearly too small for them, but they prefer it that way. Pre-sale tickets are available exclusively to their mailing list now and will be followed by a general sale on Wednesday 27th March. If there are any left.

In their brief and eventful existence, FUDGE. have already made significant waves. They were recently invited to play a live set by BBC Introducing and the launch night in February for their second single, NOT A THREAT JUST A WARNING, at the 360 Club at Leeds Lending Room, witnessed scenes that took the breath away. In FUDGE. parlance it “went off”; it got messy and dangerous and exhilarating. It also saw the ‘sold-out-doors-locked’ signs before the first support had finished in a futile attempt to prevent anyone else getting in, with a huge ticketless crowd left in the street outside.

We attended that very special gig, read our review The highlights of that review:

“… To describe this as merely a gig would be an understatement; it’s an experience, a shared, exhilarating experience …”

“… I miss gigs like this, I miss that group madness that only a band who truly connect with their audience can generate; you need to go see Fudge play, you must go see Fudge play”

You can watch brief footage of the night in the following video:

Anyone who has witnessed FUDGE. live will know it’s a staggering spectacle, verging on the edge of chaos and threat, as band members launch into the mosh pit whilst still playing their instruments, but always watching each other’s back, always watching the audience’s back. Their songs may have an air of violence and menace but a blanket of compassion and unity hovers over FUDGE. and they will always ensure that none of the good people of Leeds will be harmed in the making of this band.
