November last year saw the birth of the DefDFires band, like many of the band members themselves the group took it’s first steps in Kilburn. The debut performance was a run of three nights supporting Rubberbandits in Powers Bar, all three nights sold out and the live band was thrust into the world, leaping and screaming with the joyful intensity DDF supporters will know well, now backed some beefy instrumentation. The new members include original Undali member Gringo Grasshopper on bass, Tiffer Morris on drums and the return of DDF founding member Jayla Payne on guitar (and maybe even the odd cheeky verse). We went on to play a good string of gigs including Proud Galleries and Hootanannys before we had to retreat into hiding to complete our work on O:ZN, now that we are out of the cave I’m pleased to say that the band will return soon, bigger, better and with even more hoe-down headbanging hip-shaking madness.
UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES DEFEDFIRES WILL NOT BE PLAYING DATES IN LEEDS, WALSALL & BIRMINGHAM. WE APPOLOGISE TO THOSE WHO WERE PLANNING TO ATTEND THOSE NIGHTS, BUT WE WILL SEE YOU ONCE THE NEW L.P. IS COMPLETED.
DEFDFIRES will be performing at Brixton Jamm 1st May. With an absolutly heavyweight line up, this won’t be one to miss!! (All profits raised from the event will go to THE BIG ISSUE)
