Every time I hear that the Fuzzed Up & Astromoon Records label has a new release my excitement levels go through the roof. Doubly so when that release is the new single from Dublin’s hottest new act, Krypton Bulb.
This band delivers high octane, gutsy rock ‘n’ roll. They have developed a reputation for incendiary live performances which led to Fuzzed Up & Astromoon releasing a double A-side lathe cut 7” single. That single, ‘Let Me Tell Ya / Come On Over’ remains a firm favourite of mine to this day.
They return this week to launch their brand-new single ‘Jackie’s Man’ with a live show in the beautiful surroundings of The Sound House venue on Dublin’s Eden Quay. The single will be released digitally by the band with a 7″ vinyl release coming out on Fuzzed Up & Astromoon Records.
The track has that dirty garage energy that we all love so much however there’s a real glam swagger in the pounding drums. As always there’s a hook that doesn’t let up making this another sure fire hit for the band.
The release is accompanied by a brilliant video created by long term collaborator Michael White which you can check out here.
As performers go, Krypton Bulb have pretty quickly developed a reputation for unpredictable chaos on stage making them a must-see live act. If you like what you’ve heard and you want to head along, the show is on Saturday 25 February at the Sound House. Tickets are €10 and can be bought from Eventbrite here.
Support comes from lo-fi psych-garage-punks Thee U.F.O whose latest album release ‘Ponderous Fug’ has been a regular spin here in the clubhouse since its release. They will be showcasing new material from their upcoming follow up album!
The 7” lathe cut single of ‘Jackie’s Man’ goes on sale Friday 24 February from Fuzzed Up & Astromoon Records Bandcamp Page. If you want a copy, I’d recommend being ready at 8am GMT hovering over that buy button. This is going to fly!
