Big Bang! 2CD - Fuzzbox

Big Bang! 2CD
Field #11 not in Database

The four Queens of the Galaxy ride again! Three years, four galaxies and a zillion zany adventures after the release of their debut of their debut album 'Bostin' Steve Austin' the mighty We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use it!! returned to Earth from their extended hiatus on the planet Lovely, with this their second coming - 'Big Bang!'
The first single launched from the album, International Rescue [UK #11] rocketed its way into the the UK single charts and a new age of Fuzzbox begun. Gone were the mohair jumpers, day-glo hair and so-called "musical ineptitude" that had first enamoured them to the world, replaced instead with co-ordinating military style uniforms, a refined glamour and a slick Fairlight production style, whilst still retaining their unique charm and wit. The accompanying promo video for International Rescue, directed by comedy genius Adrian Edmondson (The Young Ones & Bottom) became an intergalactic hit upon its release, fueled by its Thunderbirds meets Barbarella sci-fi action theme, and Fuzzbox we're beamed into the homes of millions of TV viewers across the land, becoming instant media darlings in the process. Fuzzbox were go!
Whilst the albums second single; Pink Sunshine [UK #14] stalled at the upper-end of the UK Top #20, despite being the bands biggest selling single to date, Fuzzbox's star could not have shone brighter. Six Top of The Pop's performances, Capital Radio promotional shows and endless magazine covers including the NME, Smash Hits and Record Mirror followed. The third single from Big Bang!, the rockier, Self! [UK #24], earned the band their third consecutive chart entry single and even featured a guest guitar performance from the legendary Brian May (Queen), it seemed everybody wanted in on the fuzz.
Released in August, 1989, Big Bang! [UK #5] was certified Gold upon its release for initial sales in excess of 250,000 in the UK alone and received critical acclaim from champions old and new, including a 4/5 review from Q Magazine, who praised the band for their musical evolution and song-writing prowess.
Despite the bands desire to take Big Bang! out on tour their promotional commitments made this impossible, much to their chagrin. As tensions grew between the band members, so did those with their record company, this was brought to a head when Fuzzbox's plan to release the fan favourite Fast Forward Futurama as the fourth cut from the album was overruled in favor of the Yoko Ono cover Walking on Thin Ice [UK #76] by label bigwigs, resulting in a minor hit. A promotional tour of the Far East followed and brought 1989 to a climactic end.
The band returned to the studio in 1990 to begin work on their ill-fated third album, tentatively titled Out of this World; with producer Leigh Roy Gorman (Bow Wow Wow). However, after the limited release of the single Your Loss My Gain [UK #100], Jo, Maggie, Tina and ViX halted production on the album and opted to disband; citing "musical differences", thus bringing about the end of an incredible five year journey and leaving behind a musical legacy that is still unsurpassed, as the UK's most successful all-female band.
This special 2CD Orgasmatron Edition of the album finally finds its way back to Earth on Cherry Red Records, 14 years after it's debut release on WEA Records. CD1 offers the original 10 track album digitally remastered in all its gloriousness, whilst CD2 offers up a 15 track bonus journey into the furthest reaches of space, time and the latter day Fuzzbox archives, featuring: 12-inch mixes, B-sides, rarities, CD exclusives, recordings from the Out of This World sessions and the 2004 Syndrum Mix of Fast Forward Futurama featuring Manda Rin (Bis). The expanded CD booklet features sleeve notes, complete with original and expanded artwork.
