The Victoria, what an amazing night! It had been over a year since we last played here, but Swindon certainly hasn't lost its heavy metal spirit!
Thanks for a really fun night everyone. Special thanks to Darren for making it all happen, to Fist Full Of Foozy for kicking off the night and to Iain 'GT' Davies for filling in on guitar for us.

FIST FULL OF FOOZY
Fist Full of Foozy play a hard hitting blend of classic hard rock to modern day heavy metal.
A blend of original and cover songs carefully crafted to give you an irresistible urge to bang your head.
With a wide age range in the band (18-80) Fist Full of Foozy has a unique sound that will appeal to rock and metal fans of all ages.
So if you like it loud and heavy Fist Full of Foozy is the band for you.
Formed in 2010 for a bit of a laugh to celebrate Fast Foozys birthday, Fist Full of foozy has mutated over the past six years from a tongue in cheek covers band to the goliath metal monster its become today. A lot of hard luck plagued the band with a lot of personnel changes but the core of the band has remained the same pretty much from the beginning.( Fast Foozy) on lead guitar and spiritual leader of the band,( Steel Steve) on vocals and( K.Y) Jason keen on drums.
After a long slog of false starts Fist Full of Foozy has finally completed its line up with (Delbatron) Derek Fellowes on bass and the cherry on the cake with the incredibly talented (legendary Leo) Leo Phipps on lead and rhythm guitar
So after a bit of a break Fist Full of Foozy have been cutting their teeth with the new line up playing some local venues and festivals and are hungry for more. Next stop world domination
Last minute gig booking! We're playing a set at Wheatsheaf Banbury tomorrow, with an extra sprinkling of Motorhead and Hawkwind as a tribute to the late Lemmy.
