10-46 Vigier & Fuzzrocious Present: This Illusion

Currently existing as guns for hire and trying to stay ahead of the ever advancing armies of Glak-the-Spinster. These soldiers of fortune will be spraying colours of Fuzzrocious and Vigier into battle, while trying to bring justice to the moral disintegration of the Lambrini System.
If you have a problem…if no one else can help…and if you can find them…maybe you can hire…This Illusion.

11-48 Joe Kelly & The Royal Pharmacy

It’s easy to consign the idea of the itinerant blues singer to myth (Robert Johnson) or caricature (Seasick Steve) but in 2017, Joe Kelly is as close as you’ll get to the real thing. Having spent the last couple of years calling a dilapidated camper van home and playing hundreds of shows armed with just a beaten-up guitar, a stomping foot and a harmonica, Joe decided that enough was enough, breaking free of the limitations of the one-man band and enlisting the services of a hand-picked troupe of the finest local guns for hire, the ‘Royal Pharmacy’.

“I think I knew pretty early on” laughs British guitarist Chris Buck. “That first moment of being able to replicate what was coming out of my stereo had a big effect on me. I’ve wanted to be a musician ever since”. Fast forward ten years and Chris, finds himself at the legendary Rockfield Studios, a stones-throw away from his South Wales home, recording Buck & Evans’ much anticipated debut album. Guitar greats may have been quick to express their appreciation of Chris’s playing – (this guy’s a fu*king awesome guitar player!” – Slash) but Chris insists that he doesn’t crave the spotlight
