You could be at the Brighton Dome gig!
Super Furry Animals (SFA) are playing the Brighton Dome next month on Tuesday 13 December. The band reformed last year and brought their five-year hiatus to an end. Originally, SFA arrived on the music scene in 1993; nine albums and many awards later, they are making a welcome return to the live scene with the Fuzzy Logic/Radiator tour.
Never hesitant about playing the fan’s favourite tracks, this tour brings the highly-acclaimed first two albums to the stage, both back to back and in their entireties. The band are often billed as psychedelic Welsh rock, which sounds a bit like a niche genre. In fact, their brand of psychedelic pop is a much-needed antidote to the bland pop scene. Their distinctive surreal and imaginative lyrics and their tracks are little pieces of wonderful.
SFA released their first single in seven years in May 2016. Bing Bong commemorated the Welsh football team’s European success. The band’s ethos is transparent and refreshing: they look to ways to describe and celebrate the here and now – sometimes it’s not glamorous, but it is important to many. Few bands retain such an original style, their electronic influences, vocal distortions and trippy beats hark back to the founding bands of the psychedelic scene. They make their own mark, and I hope they continue to do so now they are working together again. We’re very happy then, to see the band bring their brilliant, bold and creative work to the Dome next month.
