Fun City Short Info

FUN CITY

North London Tropical Indie band, taking their inspiration from African Funk, Disco, Post Punk & Ska.

An energetic 4-piece of drums, bass, guitar, korg, melodica, percussion, whistles and vocals. They play fun -time music for dancing to Fun City’s self-recorded 4 track EP was self-released on vinyl and hand distributed. It was recorded using their own equipment and having ‘borrowed’ a North London primary school hall for 4 hours as a live room. It cost £50 to make and it sounds a bit like it cost that. But it captures their DIY punk ethos and has all the charm and urgency of their live shows.

Nick and Chris are childhood friends having grown up on the estates of Hoxton. Michael and Fionn are siblings from rural North Yorkshire. They met in a pub in Holloway. Ignoring the London circuit they choose instead to do their own gigs and gig-swap with bands from out of town. This has taken them to Leeds, Wakefield, Edinburgh, Retford, Settle. Fun City regularly play Tipsy Dalston, Victoria Dalston, Biddles Bros, Little Baobab and Shacklewell Arms in London.

Live, Fun City play a cracking 40 minute set of up-tempo tracks with minimal vocals, melodic basslines funky keys and infectious rhythms. Think Madness meets Fela Kuti at a Clash gig.
