The Ghost Of Fudge

Fudge's HALL OF FAME

Recommended Posts

I didn't really start going to gigs until I started playing with Dos Dedos in 2002 cos I wasn't really aware of there being a music scene in Aberdeen until I was in it. And in 2002 I moved into a flat about 100 metres from Doctor Drakes so I started going to a lot of gigs then.

Also I have a really bad memory.

Do you realise how often you mention Dos Dedos in your posts Elwood? You should really move on you know... ;)

I remember seeing Purple Munkie on the same bill as Deadloss at Exodus. I asked one of them if the name was a Simpsons reference, but they said it was just a coincidence.

that could well have been the very first fudgenight... almost a decade ago o_O

ahhh, just Fudge in general? i'm with you!

Malt Mill (sort of, though the term 'Fudge' hadn't been invented yet) / Exodus / Lemon Tree / Drakes / Estaminet / The Loft / Lava / Cafe Drummonds / Dr Drakes / The Tunnels / Moshulu / Moorings / Snafu / ummm....

and the 13th Note / Bannermans / Path Tavern / Westport Bar / Hollyrood Student Union as out of town venues.

think that's it.

Who were the Anal Punishers?

Basically, Waz (TAR/MyDecayingLeg/DeadlossSuperstar/SuperAdventureClub) in a cat mask and boiler suit, Binky (TAR/WeBecomeLess/DeadlossSuperstar/SheildsUp) in a cow mask, and Matt (TAR) in a horse mask.

They played slowed down hardcore/metal. Their big hit (it was on a Fudge CD) was called 'Scone?'. It was about whether bagels were better than scones. With a cup of tea.

Presumably, they weren't up against much competition that year...
