Our Soundscene

For anyone who vaguely recalls the Woking / GU postcode area music scene.

Band A-Z

What follows is an alphabetical list of bands we like to claim are Woking / GU Postcode – Well, they at least featured heavily in the Woking music scene and the columns of Soundscene – with links to their page here on OurSoundscene.org or our old Facebook group. If a band has no link then we have no image/s, but we’ll include a write up of what we know here. If you have images, information, memories, etc. we’d love to see/hear them, simply comment on a bands page or email david.shephard@hotmail.com.

FUX (c’90-’92) – Billy Blowers (?), Lisa Donoghue (?), Michael Mcauley (guitar), and Dave Gee (guitar). This Farnborough based ‘metal’ band were performing up to 4 gigs a week throughout the local area and taking two coach loads full to gigs in town at their peak. They were managed by Tank James, Gee’s father. It was James who gave the band their name and late 80’s ’rawk’ image; while Donoghue’s brother designed the logo. On the announcement of the name change the Strewth! the Cat’s on Fire! fanzine suggested that they may as well have changed their name to “Band With the Bird With Big Tits Singing”. FUX was supposed be F.U.X, which was imaginatively expanded to mean For Unlawful Xperience. At 15, Blowers was the youngest with his parents signing the contract. James booked the band into Studio 125, Burgess Hill to record an EP, where the band also stayed; while Blowers, who was sitting his GCSE’S was ferried back and forth. The band later renamed as Wanted.
