MESSAGE STARTS A huge thanks to everyone who came along last night, all the bands who took part in Eruption, to the sponsors, and especially to the finalists who competed last night (in alphabetical order): Far Full Fat Sonic Bucker The Malpaso Gang It was a great gig, and only 2 points separated the 4 bands.

  3. WE'RE GETTING TO THE POINTY END OF BUSINESS... We invite you to join us at Krakatoa on Saturday 11th March, to celebrate the twin joys of music and drinking while listening to 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. So enjoy the evening - and also the vast selection of world beers. 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. Although the night is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, we encourage you to get dressed up. It IS an awards ceremony, after all. Tophats and tails, please! Facebook Event - https://www.facebook.com/events/148195125663805/ SO... Consider the following six nominees, and vote above. You may vote for more than one choice. You'll also be able to vote on Facebook, at some point soon, and also in person at Krakatoa - paper voting slips will be handed out at gigs. All these votes will be totalled and COMBINED to arrive at our victors.

  4. If you come on down to Krakatoa any given Wednesday night, and you'll find us engaged in the sort of loud, boozy fun that makes a week night in the frozen north bearable. Kicking off around 8pm, and continuing through until the midnight curfew, our Krakaoke spirit guides will help you select a track from the thousands of billions available, and then parade you in front of the caterwauling masses as entertainment. There's a prize for the winner. If this sounds like a bloody good idea, you'll find us at Krakatoa, 2 Trinity Quay, Merchant Quarter, ABZ on Wednesdays. There's even a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/krakatoakaraoke/
