Fun Day Out

This awesome great group called Fun Day Out has a fair amount of potential! Normally I’d say any band who mixes their instruments with synths would be NuRave- but these guys rock more than anything! It’s something a little different than what you’d usually hear but it’s not in the least bit bad.
Hopefully they’ll make it bigtime- and if they do, I could safely say that their crazy ass personalities and attitude would help them cope well with everything and they’d fit in JUUUUUST fine.

Have a read of their very entertaining and open interview- sounds like a bunch of guys who love to take the piss out of each other:

How did you come up with the name?
Errm one of our friends miss annie jakeman had some videos in her itunes and the ‘artist’ was called a fun day out. And busby was like thats a cool band name… and it wasnt a band so we stole it haha.

but we had some talks/arguments about changing it lol but Toby got outvoted so its still the same! lol

Tell me a little about yourselves?
Tobz – small, cute, the sexy dancer of the band hes 17 and youngest! and he lives in st annes like all the others in the band!

Busby – spacey drummer boyy 😉 hes the brains behind the electronic set ups really computer wizzzzzle! hes 18.

Shlee – THE EX-METALHEAD he hated hadouken, skinnies, enter shikari but since joining FDO loves them all lol. hes also 18 and thinks hes a pimp.

Ben – the girly one, concerned more about his hair than the band. were late for everything cos of this ha. the last one to join the band. and hes 19.

Cal- the pussywhipped one also the dipsiest guy you will meet but writes most the lyrics and most of the music to the songs. and he has just turned 18.
