❉ The legendary We’ve Got a Fuzzbox And We’re Going To Use It are back with a vengeance.
’80s power pop/rock group Fuzzbox formerly known as We’ve Got A Fuzzbox and We’re Gonna Use it are back. Their new single I Can’t Do Anything is due for release on the 12th June.
The new single I Can’t Do Anything is a complete reimagining of the X-Ray Spex classic that touches on themes left-of-centre for a pop record, such as dyspraxia, growing pains, pet rats and surrealist observations which the late great writer Poly Styrene was noted for.
Each year in London there is a celebration of the life and times of Poly Styrene called Polyfest and last year featuring the likes of The Vibrators, The Rut, Dexys Midnight Runners, Youth, The Specials featuring Neville Staple, Christine ‘Sugary’ Staple and Fuzzbox who in last year’s celebration blew the roof off with this incredible track.
This year due to the pandemic shutting the place down Polyfest which is in its 7th year won’t be live so is now being celebrated by a series of recordings by an eclectic array of artists performing totally original versions. Fuzzbox fronted by Vix Perks and Maggie Dunne played their classic tracks such as Pink Sunshine, Rules And Regulations and the American Billboard Top 20 Self which are all featured on the band’s forthcoming box set which has been produced by Mike Bennett (The Fall, Gregory Isaacs, The Specials, Toyah Willcox and Ian Brown).
The UK’s most successful all-girl band, Fuzzbox emerged onto the scene in 1985 with big hair, big attitudes and big power pop rock sounds. After reforming in 2015 they’ve been gigging up and down the country with the same powerful sound and have toured with The Wonder Stuff.
