FUR

  • Brighton band Fur release new single

    Brighton band Fur release new single With a sound that harks back to the reverb-drenched rock’n’roll sounds of the 50s and 60s, Fur are unapologetic retro-pop romanticists. They made their mark with ‘If You Know That I’m Lonely’, viewed on YouTube over one and a half million times so far, and the appropriately first-named Murray, Harry, Tav and Flynn have just released ‘What Would I Do’. The boys say, “It’s based around the realisation and actuality of the people who surround you at any given time can quickly become distant and not part of your life and maybe having feelings of sadness towards the uncertainty of not having familiar faces around in your life”.
  • The Great Escape Festival – 2018

    The Great Escape Festival – 2018 The Great Escape Festival – 2018 To paraphrase that Marmite film classic, the streets were alive with the sound of music! Over three long days and nights, Brighton did truly come alive as The Great Escape juggernaut rolled into town for its 13th edition. The festival for new music saw over 500 acts playing in 40-odd venues, representing countries from all around the globe. If you add in the The Alternative Great Escape, and the plethora of events and pop-up performances arranged off the back of TGE and AGE, you’re looking at closer to 1,000 acts in 80-odd venues. Yes, it was mad, but glorious. Helped along by some beautiful mid-May sunshine, somehow within all the chaos, Brightonsfinest were out in force, documenting, commenting, and enjoying what we like to do best. Watch live...
  • The Alternative Escape announces line-up

    The Alternative Escape announces line-up The Alternative Escape is to The Great Escape what the Brighton Fringe is to the Brighton Festival. Open access, rather than programmed. However, that doesn't mean that the quality isn't there. Indeed, because The Great Escape is relatively restricted in terms of numbers, The Alternative Escape offers great opportunities for labels, management companies, media organisations (such as yours truly), promoters, agencies and the like to organise their own shows, in venues they see fit but still have the benefits of being promoted within The Great Escape publicity machine, via their website and printed programme. Many acts crossover, playing both TGE and TAE within the three days of the event. So, the quality is often very high.

  • FUR – The Haunt – 24th February 2018

    FUR - The Haunt – 24th February 2018 FUR – The Haunt – 24th February 2018 Playing their largest headline show to date, upcoming Brighton talent FUR brought together a packed show tonight which was fun, fresh and what may possibly be the resurgence of a genre into the modern age. Opening tonight are BLUSH, a Brighton group who already have a great deal of respect from the Brighton music community, their dreamy sounds and soothing tones from vocalist Asya Fairchild made for a great opening to the evening. This was BLUSH’s first show back in around half a year, so the nerves were surely flowing, but the group performed a fantastic set which will surely be the foundation for many more this year.
