Last year the London-based independent label Fuzz Club hosted a two-day festival in the Dutch city of Eindhoven which saw people travel from over 35 different countries to immerse themselves in a communal celebration of all things fuzz, reverb and drone. The label have been busy working on round two and are now sharing the first wave of artists set to play Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019, taking place at the Effenaar over 23 – 24 August.
To announce the second edition of the festival, Fuzz Club have revealed the first seventeen names. Topping the bill as it stands are Japanese mavericks Kikagaku Moyo who will be bringing their transcendental blend of minimalist psychedelia, Eastern folk and krautrock. Joining them will be Iceage and their twisted post-punk drawl and The Soft Moon, whose pounding cocktail of industrial, EBM and darkwave will be shaking floors in the early hours.
On top that there will be The KVB’s icy synth-pop, the shadowy drone-rock of Tess Parks and shoegazing legends The Warlocks and The Telescopes. Plus further Japanese hypnosis courtesy of Minami Deutsch, synth-punk workouts from Rendez-Vous and droning garage-psych from Alan Vega proteges The Vacant Lots. Representing the Fuzz Club camp will be Berlin post-punk outfit The Underground Youth, Oakland cosmonauts Lumerians, Porto krautrockers 10 000 Russos, Chilean heavyweights Vuelveteloca and South African noise-pop duo Medicine Boy.
We were there last year, and with a line up like this we are surely gonna be there again this year.
The second announcement will be coming soon but until then, the current list of names is as follows: Kikagaku Moyo, The Soft Moon, Iceage, The KVB, Tess Parks, The Underground Youth, The Warlocks, The Telescopes, The Vacant Lots, Lumerians, Whispering Sons, Rendez-Vous, Iguana Death Cult, Minami Deutsch, 10 000 Russos, Medicine Boy and Vuelveteloca.
