  1. SAT 10th MARCH 2018 KRAKATOA proudly presents:THE FUDGE MUSIC AWARDS 2018 Welcome to the 18th annual Fudge Music Awards, featuring THREE BANDS, an AWARDS CEREMONY in two parts, and our legendary AFTERSHOW PARTY. -------------------------------------------------------------- Some 15 glittering trophies will be presented to the winning acts, who will be invited onstage to make a drunken acceptence speech to the massed, cheering ranks of the Aberdeen Music Scene (TM). -------------------------------------------------------------- 7pm - 7.30pm > GREEN BEERS Who could possibly open such a night of fun and frivolity? www.facebook.com/AlmostLikeBrokebackMountain/ Acoustic punk outfit Green Beers, that's who. Kickstarting the evening as only they know how! 7.45pm - 8.10pm > Fudge Awards Ceremony pt.1 www.facebook.com/fudge.aberdeen/ Join us as we celebrate the best Aberdeen bands of the past year - it's The Fudge Awards! In the first half of the live awards ceremony, we'll be dishing out trophys for Best Album, Most Missed, Best Video, etc., and trying to get drunk as quickly as possible. It's like the Oscars, but shitter. 8.30pm - 9pm > THE NUMBSKULLS After the first half of the awards ceremony, we'll be handing the stage over to another fabulous local act... www.facebook.com/numbskulls.uk/ "It's been a brilliant year since we decided to get Numbskulls back together. The gigs have been brilliant and we appreciate the support we've had." With dates on the European Psychobilly Festival scene, a 25 year history, and a new album - out on vinyl via Diablo Records. Currently looking forward to dates across the UK and Europe. 9.15pm - 9.45pm > Fudge Awards Ceremony pt.2 www.facebook.com/fudge.aberdeen/ In the second half of tonight's awards ceremony, we'll celebrate the Best Band, Best Newcomer and Best Live Act, etc.. To a chorus of deafening crowd participation - probably jeering, if I'm any judge - we'll discover who you've picked this year, and whether or not they've turned up to collect their awards... 10pm - 10.45pm > ORYNTHIA To polish this gig off with a fine, shiny, supple finish, we have our spectacular headlining act! www.facebook.com/orynthiaband/ "A progressive five-piece metal outfit!" Winners of Best Newcomer last year, for this edition of the Fudge Awards they've risen to headlining act, which is pretty good going you'd have to agree. Think weird time signatures, prog guitar, pounding percussion, and water-tight musicality! With your fantasy tag-team hosts for the evening, Bri Fudge and Vincent Frazer-Price. Verily.
  2. WHAT? The Fudge Music Awards: an irreverent local awards ceremony for bands from Aberdeen - like a shit Oscars crossed with the drunkest gig you've ever been to.. WHO? Prog metal titans Orynthia headline, with double-bass punk-rockers The Numbskulls, and acoustic punk types Green Beers to open the show. In between the bands, Bri Fudge hosts a shambolic and unrehearsed awards ceremony, with comedian Vincent Frazer-Price briefly interviewing the winning bands onstage as they collect their trophies. They will both do their best to be heard above all the cat-calling and heckling. You can also expect a podium made of cardboard boxes and tinfoil. WHERE?

  8. ERUPTION 2017 https://www.facebook.com/events/455560764821094/In collaboration with Captain Toms, Kenny's Music, and the Evening Express, we are thrilled to announce ERUPTION 2017, a battle of the bands competition open to all performers within Aberdeen City & Shire aged 18 and over. Last year we amassed a £2,500 cash prize for the winners. Sponsors for this year are currently being actively sought - currently, the prize fund is sitting at £2000.ERUPTION was launched in 2016 to stimulate interest in grassroots music within North East Scotland, and this will be its second running after a spectacular first year. We're especially delighted to welcome back last years sponsors, Captain Toms, Kenny's Music, and the Evening Express. Together with your help, we intend to continue showcasing just how deep and diverse the local talent pool is. Heats will be held on weekends throughout June, July, and August 2017. The semi-finals will take place in January 2018, with the Grand Final in February 2018. Each show will take place from 8pm-11pm and consist of 4 bands, each playing a 30 minute set. Running-order will be determined by chance on the night of the show. Comprehensive backline will be provided to facilitate short intervals, but performers are welcome to take along their own amps, pedals, snares, etc, and drummers will be expected to use their own cymbals. All acts need to be in the venue by 6pm, to load-in, discuss technical set-ups with our engineer, and take part in a game of chance to allocate their stage slot. Competing bands will be awarded a score. Depending on availability, bands are welcome to enter multiple times, in order to better their score. Scores are not cumulative. The 16 bands with the highest scores will be entered into the semi-finals, which will be decided by knockout, with one band from each semi-final progressing into the grand final. Judging will be by a panel. We’ll endeavour to ensure that these panels are as independent and objective as possible. Points out of 10 will be awarded for: Material Performance Technical ability Audience engagement Professionalism ... to arrive at a potential maximum score of 50 per judge. A door charge of £4 will be in effect for each heat. There will be no free admissions. This is a contest, so there will be no payment for performing, however Krakatoa will absorb all show costs. Get in touch if you or your band would like to play.

  10. In collaboration with Captain Toms, we are thrilled to announce ERUPTION 2017, a battle of the bands competition open to all performers within Aberdeen City & Shire aged 18 and over. Last year we amassed a £2,500 cash prize for the winners. Sponsors for this year are currently being actively sought. ERUPTION was launched in 2016 to stimulate interest in grassroots music within North East Scotland, and this will be its second running after a spectacular first year. Together with your help, we intend to showcase just how deep and diverse the local talent pool is. Heats will be held on weekends throughout June, July, and August. The semi-finals will take place in January, with the Grand Final in February. Each show will take place from 8pm-11pm and consist of 4 bands, each playing a 30 minute set. Running-order will be determined by chance on the night of the show. Comprehensive backline will be provided to facilitate short intervals, but performers are welcome to take along their own amps, pedals, snares, etc, and drummers will be expected to use their own cymbals. All acts need to be in the venue by 6pm, to discuss technical set-ups with the engineer, and take part in a game of chance to allocate their stage slot. Competing bands will be awarded a score. Depending on availability, bands are welcome to enter multiple times, in order to better their score. Scores are not cumulative. The 16 bands with the highest scores will be entered into the semi-finals, which will be decided by knockout, with one band from each semi-final progressing into the grand final. Judging will be by a panel. We’ll endeavour to ensure that these panels are as independent and objective as possible. Points out of 10 will be awarded for: Material Performance Technical ability Audience engagement Professionalism ... to arrive at a potential maximum score of 50. A door charge of £4 will be in effect for each heat. There will be no free admissions. This is a contest, so there will be no payment for performing, however Krakatoa will absorb all show costs. Please email hen@krakatoa.bar if you’d like to enter, or alternatively contact 'Fudge Aberdeen' on Facebook. Any sponsors seeking to come on board please email flash@krakatoa.bar
  11. Give me a yell if you're interested in taking part ...
  12. The first few dates have been released, and the initial batch of bands have added their names to various line-ups... Let's replace these TBCs with kick-ass Aberdonian bands, shall we? Gimme a yell if you're up for it....
  13. Indeed there was. But as is now traditional, the 'winner' is unrecorded... You had to be there, man... Had to be there...

  18. THE FINAL POLL (but not here)... We invite you to join us at Krakatoa this Saturday (11th March), to celebrate... MUSIC! We'll be hosting the 17th instalment of the legendarily shambolic FUDGE MUSIC AWARDS - complete with tinfoil podium, and trophies for the winners. The triumphant victors, should they be in attendance, will be invited onstage to give thanks to their fans, and subjected to a brief 'red-carpet interview' by our co-host for the night, MAGENTA LUST. Three bands will play too, lest we forget in all this carefully planned chaos. The bouncy GYPSY ROOTS. The proggy SOLQUIN. The rip-roaring SMOKIN' BUGLER BAND. We'll even have some burlesque from Magenta Lust... Facebook Event - https://www.facebook.com/events/148195125663805/ SO... Check out the final polls for BEST BAND 2017 and WORST BAND 2017 - http://fudgeaberdeen.polldaddy.com/s/fudge-awards-2017-best-band-worst-d
  19. We're now taking bookings for this years edition of ERUPTION, our battle-of-the-bands type competition. The first two heats (9th / 10th June) are both booked up already. You just have to all be 18+, and from the local area. So, if you fancy getting a foot in the door at Krakatoa, playing a Friday or Saturday night gig on a four-band line-up, and being potentially just three gigs away from a fine wedge of $$$, then please send me a message. In the 2016-2017 version, local indie rockers FAR overcame fellow finalists Full Fat, The Malpaso Gang, and Sonic Bucker, to win a slot at Enjoy Music Festival this summer, and a cool £2500 cash. It could've been you. Interested? Send me a PM!
