Out today!! FK054 the brand new Fruit Tones album 'Pink Wafer Factory' 🏭
Ripe n ready rock n roll all the way from Manchester, you know the drill, I love this band! Hits that won't quit!

Order at fuzzkillrecords.bandcamp.com **link in bio**
Launch party tomorrow at The Old Hairdressers with Thee MVPs and Former Champ for a Fuzzkill/Freakender/Pop Mutations Xmas party

Fruit Tones announce sophomore album, ‘Pink Wafer Factory’ Out November 2022 - Alien Sn**ch! Records & Fuzzkill Records “The full on energy of The Stooges, the sass of New York Dolls and
that old school DIY punk approach, this is a band free from the
constraints of the music industry” - SHINDIG! Magazine
“They could steal the show from any headliner” - Louder than War

Fruit Tones are back! Ripe & ready to roll again with their self-recorded
sophomore LP 'Pink Wafer Factory' dropping November 2022 on Alien
Sn**ch! Records (Berlin) and Fuzzkill Records cassette.
Self recorded, produced and mixed in their Manchester practice room during covid lockdowns and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) ‘Pink Wafer Factory’ is the highly anticipated result of over a years worth of isolated jiving, collective commitment to “keeping on chooglin” and an unstoppable love for timeless rock n roll.

The first album optimism makes way for a more mature, fully developed piece of work and brings their tongue-in-cheek, born-to-lose sass right to forefront.
“I’m sick and tired of waking up, so I don’t go to bed” they chant on “I’ll Be Glad”, whilst slowing things down to jam over that deep fried ‘Loaded’ era VU choogle. “It’s about doing what you love despite the odds being stacked against you, knowing you’ll be happy even if it’s a complete failure” says band leader Tom Harrison.

Lead single, 'Back In The Night (Again)’ is Fruit Tones doing what they do best - the steam-rollin-mondo-garage-thud, ripping bass, blown-out early rock & roll licks, their now legendary playful stop-starts and that vocal howl backed up by gang choruses from drummer Tomas Walmsley and bassist CJ Wood.

- Grand Opening release party~~~
The rat is outta the bag, the goose is loose 🐀 🦆 💥

To commemorate the release of Grand Opening, we thought we'd hold one of our own alongside some trusted business associates.

We welcome CHAMPAYNE and TOWN CRUISE all the way from the Delicious Clam in Sheffield, as well as Manchester heartstoppers BONES SHAKE, and a couple of new mutants on the scene by the name of HUP.

Saturday 27th August. 6pm. Klondyke Club. Bank holiday hoedown. Bring a date. Bring a smile. Bring your family.

Out today FK053 - HONK - Grand Opening available on cassette at fuzzkillrecords.bandcamp.com and on all good streaming services! Come get some!

HONK are a 6-piece trash can country troupe based in Manchester, UK. Straddling the worlds of country, rock 'n' roll, punk, and whatever else in between, “Grand Opening”, the debut EP is a whistle-stop tour of their collective influences, namely the likes of DM Bob, Country Teasers, The Cramps and beyond. With several live shows under their belts and more in the works, this train ain't slowing down any time soon. Saddle up and strap in, it's a bumpy ride ahead

This ramshackle group, made of first timers and DIY veteran players, came together after a Christmas karaoke performance gone right. Learning to play their instruments on the job leaves a slack togetherness that makes for a dangerous and exciting runaway mine train of a live show.

Introducing HONK -  6-piece trash can country troupe based in Manchester, UK. Straddling the worlds of country, rock 'n' roll, punk, and whatever else in between, “Grand Opening”, the debut EP is being released by Fuzzkill Records on August 5th. Grand Opening is a whistle-stop tour of their collective influences, namely the likes of DM Bob, Country Teasers, The Cramps and beyond. With several live shows under their belts and more in the works, this train ain't slowing down any time soon. Saddle up and strap in, it's a bumpy ride ahead

Available on all good streaming sites Pre-order on cassette at  fuzzkillrecords.bandcamp.com ***link in bio***

This ramshackle group, made of first timers and DIY veteran players, came together after a Christmas karaoke performance gone right. Learning to play their instruments on the job leaves a slack togetherness that makes for a dangerous and exciting runaway mine train of a live show.

Grand Opening could be either a 21 minute lament to the roots of rock ’n’ roll or an exploration of a genre by people who’ve never heard it. Either way, DO call them country.

Based in Manchester and coming from Dublin, Durham and a few spots in-between, let me introduce you to HONK:

Chip Smitten - Born in Pity Me, no need to pity he (Vocals and harmonica)
Randy ‘Steel’ Harrison - Son of a welder, this Yorkshire outlaw’s got steel in his veins (Lap steel and vocals)
Yeehaw aka Calamity Hane - The boisterous Wild West Heroine who dresses like a man
helps bring the h***y tonk attraction from Dublin to the Deadwood stage (keys and vocals)
The Saint - She’s heaven sent and hell bent straight outta the Wild West Midlands (Bass)
Woody - This Rochdale rodeo runaway is slinging shots and hard licks (Guitar and vocals)
The Real Red Foley - Accept no 1910-1968 imitation, this Irish rebel grrrl is the real deal
(Drums)
