The "Worst Band" category has become the new Oscars colour diversity problem.

Except that The Oscars problem is real, and the Worst Band category is a bunch of mundane root note pounders taking themselves WAY too seriously*....

 

 

*Except I don't think they really do take themselves too seriously, unless the video for What She Wants wasn't a sophisticated joke?

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.
