Horns Of Fury RIP

Horns Of Fury RIP

Dear droogs. My heart aches and my fingers bleed, But indeed my deed is to write this read. Horns Of Fury, Rest In Peace. It is your time. Danny Fontaine & The Horns of Fury will be putting on a final show in London this September – it’ll be emotional, and it’ll be epic. More to come soon. The Horns Of Fury would never had existed without you. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again to all who have supported us over the last 10 years. We’ve sung, we’ve played, we’ve danced, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve drunk a lot of beer. We’ve done the Monday night dives, the hotels in Bournemouth, we’ve played pretty much every venue in London, we’ve done festivals, speakeasies, front rooms, churches, parties, weddings, fates, gardens, conventions, Christmas, and New years eve shows…and I’m gonna miss it like hell. And thank you to the band members who’ve been on this crazy train: TMAG, Tom Bone, Mister Tat, Jules, Missy, Big Dave, Mikey, Greg, Horse, Matt, Brendan, Griff, Joseph Le Strange, & Martin. You guys rock. Lord, strike me down if I’ve missed anyone out. Apart from the final show in September, we’ll also be working on finishing the first (and last) album, and goddammit, Chris Lincé and the crew have done it again. Please allow me to make the premiere announcement of “The Cowboy”, a brand new music video by Danny Fontaine & The Horns Of Fury, and guest starring Dylan Fontaine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4b5iUkTbHk I can’t thank everyone enough for the last third of my life in the band – hopefully we’ll see...

Keyboard/FX/noisemaker WANTED

This is exciting. Danny Fontaine & The Horns of Fury are a well known London band with Influences include Protemen, Muse, Queen, The Beach Boys, Madness, Pink Floyd, Bowie, Cash, The Clash, Green Day. We lost a trumpet player and now we’re thinking…we need something different. Something better. We don’t want to be another band playing the same old shite. We got much more to give the world than that… The songs can be narrative and dark, or bouncy and ska. We have trombone, alto sax, tenor sax. Some songs require piano. Some songs, ska organ, some songs dark organ. But then we can go further – can you trigger samples of marching zombie armies? Can you make Pink Floyds phaser’s sound like a toy gun? Do you love soundscapes, walls of sound, musicals, theatre, perfect timing and KILLER stage shows? Choirs of the dead and screaming strings?? We make music videos, we gig, we love music. We practice every Wednesday in a studio in South London. We play because we love music and love shows. Currently all money goes back in to the band to pay for recording, photoshoots, video, gear etc. We’re different to anything else out there – just check out the videos and tracks. As long as you’re 18 and have your own gear then you’ll get an audition....

DFATHOF tear up STAYCATION at The Victoria

Going from a busy room to a crowded dance floor Danny Fontaine and the Horns of Fury ( DFATHOF), finished the night with their well-honed ‘orchestral death ska’ set. These guys are definitely a band that can fill a room quickly. Being only the second time I have seen DFATHOF since their addition of a new drummer and saxophone player, the band have certainly not lost any of the stage presence we love them for. If you didn’t know about the new band members you would think the group were the original line-up since the band formed in 2006. Playing their epic new number ‘The Butcher’ DFATHOF wowed their audience as usual. The beautifully crafted World War II inspired video to which, needs to be checked out by Fontaine followers and new comers alike. As entertaining as always, members of the band became part of the crowd as brass instruments made their way through the audience making the entire room their stage. Although throughout the fun and frivolity the message of the day was not lost by the band. “You’re not just here for the music”, urged the slick front-man, “put your money in the bucket.” DFATHOF were without a doubt on top form this bank holiday Sunday.   To read the full review, visit the wonderful...

When SEO goes wrong

SO I’m not exactly sure how this happened but it made me laugh so I thought I’d share. I spent some time looking at the bands SEO yesterday, hoping we’d come up trumps for things like ‘ska band’ and ‘London prog rock band’, but no. These are the TOP 10 keywords and phrases that people are typing in and getting to www.hornsoffury.com with… As TMAG pointed out, we are sort of a nudist family – just with clothes over the top.

The Butcher – “it’s good but what does it mean?”

The Butcher – “it’s good but what does it mean?”

Dear diary, Hello. I’ve had a few people asking me about The Butcher lately. Even after they’ve heard the song, they’re still not entirely sure wtf I’m going on about. So here it is – the story behind Danny Fontaine & The Horns Of Fury 7 minute WW1 epic…   The Butcher   “Captain,” he said, “send ’em over – soon them all be dead anyway.” So “Men”, I said “go pick up your guns, full steam ahead, God save The King.” But now, I say, “hand me my new service colt instead – I’ll shoot myself” I don’t know when to fight no more with hands so red and clouded thoughts I’m scared – what’s real anymore??   I don’t know when to fight no more I don’t know who to fight no more I don’t know how to fight no more Or make anybody fight no more   I don’t know when to fight no more when men must die to win this war and I don’t know how to kill my men, and I don’t know how to rid these dreams cos I don’t know what’s real anymore.   FALL IN! STAND FAST! MOVE O’ER! I AM THE BUTCHER! AND MEN MUST DIE AT MY HANDS!   And the men, come marching in, 2 by 2, with loaded guns Carpe Diem, 2 by 2, hand grenades, be prepared. And the men, come marching in, 2 by 2, with loaded guns, Carpe Diem, ooh, 2 by 2, fall in.   You know if I was younger I would fight for the king myself but alack my valiant...
