The Ghost Of Fudge

Best Punk Act - Fma'06

Recommended Posts

I think thats a stupid poll. King Liar & The Brutes have played 2 gigs this year. Five Finger Discount havent played in ages. Broken Sunshine have played maybe 2 gigs this year as well. Weres Filthpact? The Upstarts? Karloff? Quik? *cough*The Planeteers* cough

KLATB's absense it due to the fact they are all half dead. Not exactly true but partially true. BUC has been taking on the field of law with a firm grip in the UK capital... that combined with trips to Japan for Comptroller, Central Computer's atlantic cruise, Medical operations and their on going quest in the field of academia have made them all very busy.

Rumour is they shall play again at Christmas. This might be a lie.

. Five Finger Discount havent played in ages.

eh...we haven't played Aberdeen in ages, but we've still been active. there are reasons for us not playing Aberdeen so much, mostly gigs being cancelled etc.

anyways, i'd have voted for The Upstarts had we not been nominated.

I agree with Kirk, this is not fair to the Puks.

King Liar & the Brutes do, however, deserve a nomination in the Best Music Video category for their harrowing 'Neon Lights' film. It's a shame that only 8 people have seen it, though there are another 8 out there who could see it today if they would only trust us.

FIve Finger Discount: Fudgenight at the Tunnels, friday 25th november with the welles and eric euan. rock on!

if anyone has any complaints about the nominees, fudge would like to remind them of the rigourous and stringent selection procedure: we take a badger, get it drunk, give it a paint gun then let it fire at an alphabetical list of every band in aberdeen. the first five clean hits by the badger are selected and put on the voting slips.

Agreed, tis a very good video. And Sultans of Cripple AND Billy Ely and the Catnips should be in the best punk act category too.

None of the above - The Videos frankly leave the rest of the punk acts in Aberdeen miles behind in a cloud of dust.

And thinking about it, pretty much most of the bands in other genres also eat their dust.

That's not really the case in this thread... it's more the fact that bands that aren't really playing many gigs at all are getting nominated rather than bands that are actually playing with some form of regularity (i.e more than twice in the last 12 months). i.e: Sultans of Cripple, Billy Ely and the Catnips, The Planateers etc.

In regards to my band... I can't say I'm shocked. Fudge have told me before that they don't hold my band in any sort of high-regard so it's perfectly understandable why we're not up for anything. In their position I wouldn't nominate bands I thought were shite.
