Formed in October 2015, five-piece FUSS have been creating a buzz around the Liverpool area since their debut show supporting The Vryll Society just a couple of months later that December. Comprised of David Baddeley and Tony Dixon on guitars and vocals, bassist Karl Byrne, drummer Bobby Reardon and Cormac Gould on synths, their cosmically-inclined blend of shoegaze and dreamy psych pop has been given a big thumbs up from local publications such as the Liverpool Echo and Getintothis, as well as being supported by BBC Introducing and Radio Soho, among others. Their self-titled debut EP is scheduled to land via ModernSky UK on 1st September. Recorded with Tom Longworth of The Vryll Society, they will be hosting an EP launch party at Leaf Café on Bold Street on 11th August. In the fifth of our series of interviews with the Liverpool Psych Fest congregation, we spoke to FUSSabout their upcoming appearance at the festival.
Have you ever dabbled in psychedelics? If so, how would you describe your experience?
I’m not a grass, but they’re boss.
Apart from yourselves, who would you recommend people see at Liverpool Psych Fest?
Holy Drug Couple, Jane Weaver, Songhoy Blues, Acid Arab. And obviously the Black bloody Angels buddy.
Why should festival goers take time out to come and see you play? What can they expect from your live set?
People should come see us because they’ll dance in their pants. Expect teleportation to your childhood dreams and emotions.
