No More Big Bangs

In the 80s I used to watch Top of the Pops religiously. By the 90s it was rubbish and I gave up and it wasn’t too much longer before the BBC did (ok, so it was 2006). I remember seeing International Rescue by Fuzzbox on Top of the pops vividly and absolutely loving it. Although for me their absolute classic is the Self. Big Bang was one my most played albums in my early teen years and I still enjoy it today.

I never saw the band live, although they played at the Waterfront in Norwich, I was too young to go. They played at the Whitby Goth Weekend not too long ago and I didn’t find out until afterwards. Now with the death of guitarist Jo Dunne I guess I’ll never get to see them. It’s a real shame because they really were fantastic and Jo Dunne will be missed.

  1. Heard this news too, very sad. I remember seeing We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It!! in a little club in the mid 80s, they were a riot. I'm sure I have there first single, "XX Sex"/"Rules And Regulations" - an Indie Chart No. 1! Ah, those were the days...
