Fists are playing THIS Saturday (1st March).
It's at the Orange Tree, it's completely FREE and it's going to be brilliant!

They will be accompanied by visuals courtesy of the brilliant Dan Toporowski

There are also rumours of pagan masks and new material paying tribute to Heavy Metal.

Support comes from math-rockers Alright The Captain and Stiff Kitten DJs.
The whole thing's presented by Leftlion so a good time is pretty much guaranteed.

Mine's a Sailor Jerry & Ginger - hope to see you down the front!

Crunking Good Times

I've just had one of the most random weekends ever.
Began with a Zaireeka party (listening to the Flaming Lips' genius album on 4 stereos at once - ACE)
then went to Bruce Ayling's Morecambe & Wise party.

I had a dance-off with Tom from the beeb and woke up yesterday with severe muscle strain all over after trying to 'crunk'.

Got the new Hot Chip?

Hope to see you very soon. At the Fists gig on Saturday in fact. At the Orange Tree, free of charge, courtesy of the lovely folks at LeftLion.


p.s. Cuban CrimeWave at Riff Raff @ Muse on Wednesday should be a belter too

Wah Wah Waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh

Kid 'n' Play eat your hearts out

Nottingham on Radio 1


Just wanted to let you know that Steve Lamacq's In New Music We Trust show on Radio One featured a bunch of Notts stuff last night with the segment hosted by the lovely Tom Whalley from NotInNottingham!

If you go here: you can listen to this week's show again and hear Fists on national radio, as well as a bunch of other great Notts bands!

Random Friday night in Nottingham

Well, I hope you had a nice weekend? While our lovely Supernight colleagues were making their way round the East Midlands spreading the Fists gospel, me and Anders were enjoying a nice weekend at home. Just thought I'd share a couple of moments with you.

We went for dinner on Friday to celebrate my lovely sister Katie's birthday. We ate at Bodrum on Mansfield Road, which I would really recommend. Great food and service. I ate a lot of chicken and it tasted good.

We then trotted off to enjoy the delights on show for "Light Night", organised by the City Council. We missed most of it because we were too busy eating, but we did get chance to go on the ludicrously-named Nottingham Eye. Ludicrous name, wonderful thing to do. We really fell in love with Nottingham all over again and remembered what felt special about this city when we moved here nearly 10 years ago. I'd recommend a night time visit, and take more than two people with you so you get the carriage to yourself, it's better that way.

Our last visit of a busy evening was to see Spokinn Movement at the Maze, courtesy of The Hustle. As a rule I'm not a fan of live hip-hop, I generally just feel like i'm being told off what with all that shouting, however, this was really good. Not best ever, but fun and friendly, which goes a long way.

Finally we went to Tom Whalley's house, which is always fun, even when he doesn't have any biscuits. However, as we left we came across a man sitting on the pavement next to his gate. Now, me and Anders have faced this situation a couple of times before and we're quite practised (along with Nick) at making sure people get home and don't freeze to death on our chilly streets. So, we swung into action with a cheery "Are you alright?" only to be fixed with a beady stare as the man removed his earphones and declared "I'm listening to Goldfrapp!" as though this explained everything and we were rather rude for interrupting. "Fair enough" we said, and went home.

Hope you had a good random Friday too.

Love Becky


p.s. two film recommendations - avoid Sweeney Todd and go see Juno

Well, that was brilliant!

(I had such a good time at the Fists gig I wanted EVERYONE to read about it!)

A great turn-out...

Nottingham luminaries were there - Swimming, Joey Chickenskin, Rob Yunioshi, Bones, the lovely ladies of Tether, Tom & Nick from Hello Thor, Dan Toporowski... so many brilliant minds we could've started a revolution!

A great set from Fists...

James parping his giant horn, Joe dressed as a greaser-cowpoke, Angi delighting us all with an immense analogue beast of a keyboard, Pete's brilliant new tune You Dudes Rock (thanks!) and Tez rocking out the world's smallest drum solo.

I loved it - Thanks everyone!

Fists @ Malt Cross Tomorrow!

Just a quick reminder that you can see Fists for free tomorrow at the Malt Cross, along with two other acts from around the region.

That' right, for free.

We should also let you know that we're working on something big for our 3rd birthday in March and as soon as we can confirm anything we'll put details up here. Fingers crossed it's all going to come off!
