The Horns of Fury take on the Wild West and win, get a new trumpeter and then go one louder…GIGS!

Hello. So it’s halfway through the year, and good fuck we’ve been busy. Firstly, our new song The Cowboy is done and dusted and available for listening and buying. Among the many flattering comments we’ve had: ‘yes’, ‘thanks’, ‘that’s good’, ‘a triumph’ (The Sun). Listen and download here. And send us your opinions and comments. Next up, our line-up has changed a bit. At the end of 2012 we waved goodbye to long-suffering serving trumpeteer Greg who is trying to break into the high-energy Putney badminton scene and so could not afford the time to be in the band. We replaced him with an impertinent young upstart named ‘Big Dave’ whose lips appear to be made from cast iron and who is undoubtedly a worthy addition to our ranks. Welcome Dave. Dave says hi. And then we thought, ‘is 7 members enough?’ Surely 8 members is better! So we recruited guitarist and general soundscape noisesmith MIKE PAIN. We’ve gone one louder. Mike made his DFATHOF debut at our June gig in Shepherd’s Bush. Welcome Mike. Hang on…is 8 members enough??? Etc etc forever, until everyone, including you, is in the band. Pics of these new people can be found in the pics bit. Next gig is the Hootananny in Brixton, Fri 5 July. Free in before 10! If you haven’t been to the Hooty you haven’t experienced its party atmosphere and general hedonistic abandon vibe (read: drunk). More gigs in the ‘gigs’ link. And more recording to follow in the coming months!...

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...

Fun With Guns

Fun With Guns

DFATHOF have just returned from an action-packed weekend in the DFATHO-COPTA. We began by playing our furious pants off at the illustrious 100 Club in Oxford St., on Friday night. We were joined once again by our good friends The Lagan, and also new friends ‘The Really Bad Habits’. Three 7-piece bands in a row. Shityeahthatscool. We arrived back home in Kingston at approximately 2am and enjoyed a glorious 2-hour nap before getting up again at 4am to shoot a music video for our summer-release ‘The Butcher’. Horse managed to find not only some authentic WWI uniforms, but an entire field full of trenches! The Butcher tells the tale of an army captain and his struggle with guilt as he sends his own men over the frontline, with the knowledge that they’ll die. Cool, huh? So we got back in the bus and travelled to Ipswich. We arrived at 6am and met the fabulous crew led by director Chris Lincé. The rest of the day was spent in the sweltering sun shooting guns, traipsing through trenches, and yours truly doing a WWI striptease. here’s Tom Bone doing his sexy tractor dance. We finally got done about 11pm and it’s SOOOOO gonna be worth it. We’ll be releasing it and have a big ol’ launch party in the summer so watch this space. The single will be a double A side and also feature ‘The Cowboy’. In the meantime we’ve got a load of gigs coming up so check out our shows page and we’ll see you at the bar!...
