Well it’s almost here… we’re quite excited about the launch of our EP Late Night Radio this coming Friday at The Betsey Trotwood. Here’s the lowdown below and some details of our special guests who are both brilliant! Marty will also be DJ-ing after the live stuff finishes…
Hopefully see you on the night,
Originally hailing from Edinburgh, London based Fuzzystar perform off-kilter pop that is filled with narrative and melody. Odes to love failed and fulfilled, as demonstrated in the sincere but playful Stikkle Brick song, the off-beat rhythms of Mathematics and the more plaintive Miss Lonelyhearts (Title inspired by the Nathaniel West novel). At gigs and on radio they have reminded audiences of Sebadoh/Lou Barlow, The Lemonheads, Neutral Milk Hotel and Mark Kozelek of the Red House Painters.
The Late Night Radio EP is our debut release.

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS:
Kat is the daughter of research scientists, born in Barbados but raised in the oil capital of Scotland, Aberdeen. Following a spell Edinburgh she moved to London in 2008, releasing her debut long player, Dirty Birds which has received critical acclaim from popular and mainstream critics, notably Steve Lamacq on Radio 2 and Tom Robinson of BBC 6Music who also invited Flint to appear at Wychwood Festival.
“A great singer-songwriter” – Steve Lamaq (Radio 2 Featured artist)
Marty from The Croshaw Family
Normally seen on-stage with his sister Emma, Marty will be going it partly alone, and partly with a little help from a few friends. Since 2006 The Croshaws have built up a regular following and are on familiar ground as they normally host their bi-monthly “Look!” night at the Betsey Trotwood. Whatever he plays, we can expect it to express his passion for classic bluegrass, alterantive country, old-time rock’n’roll and show the audience a good time. With previous tour support slots for The Duke & The King and Alasdair Roberts it’s bound to worth a listen…
“…a set moving from cloud-floatingly delicate numbers and the most innocent vocal lines, to nod along mid-west driving music.” – Yorkshire Evening Post.
