A stagehand, a refuse collector and a jewellery designer walk into a rehearsal room…….sounds like the start of a bad joke, maybe, but the punchline is… “6 months later they have 13 original songs finished and well rehearsed with another 12 or so on the way”.
One Englishman and two Spaniards make up Futhermuckers, created in the summer of 2020 after a jam session at a bar in Benidorm, Spain. Although nobody had heard any songs from Futhermuckers,within 2 months the offers to play at local venues came in, based, solely on the reputations of who the band members are and their experience with previous bands (2 of them having supported punk legends GBH on a UK tour back in the day).
Unfortunately for the band, the venues, local music lovers and the Costa Blanca region of Spain in general, no gigs have been allowed for the past year due to emergency health measures.
However, despite the lack of gig opportunities, the band have pushed ahead and recorded 4 songs to be released, on their debut EP, in February. 4 songs of varying styles, to fully reflect the range of the repertiore that can be expected from a full album, intended for later in 2021, and to show a glimpse of the attitude, passion and energy that people will experience at a Futhermuckers concert once they are allowed.
