FRIDAY 31 OCTOBER@ FOX AND NEWT: BLUE EYED HAWK
BLUE-EYED HAWK - LAUREN KINSELLA voice, LAURA JURD trumpet, ALEX ROTH guitar, effects,CORRIE DICK drums
Taking its name from a line in W.B. Yeats's poem Under the Moon, Blue-Eyed Hawk is a co-operative quartet that brings a wide open improv sensibility to its melodic and richly textured original material. The band formed in 2011 and creates highly charged and emotive music that takes in rock, jazz, minimalist and electronic soundworlds. Blue-Eyed Hawk's debut album will be released in Autumn 2014.
Support is provided by a duo featuring 2 of the most respected bass players based in Leeds Seth Bennett and Dave Kane. Literally DOUBLE BASS or should that be DOUBLE DOUBLE BASS!
FRIDAY 28 NOVEMBER @ FOX AND NEWT - SHIVER + CAMERON VALE
SHIVER - CHRIS SHARKEY – electric guitar, ANDY CHAMPION – electric bass, JOOST HENDRICKX – drums
As always, a pleasure to welcome Chris Sharkey back to Fusebox and those who saw their first gig at Fusebox in 2013 or more recently on tour supporting Polar Bear will need no further recommendation to see this amazing power trio once again. Shiver is guitarist Chris Sharkey's (trioVD, Acoustic Ladyland) love letter to the electric guitar, melody, rhythm, energy and volume.

Leeds based Progressive Jazz band playing original music influenced by a broad range of genres, combining improvisation, rock and electronics. Another new, young band to watch and come highly recommended by Chris Sharkey himself.
