Here it is. It’s a big rock. And it’s magnetic.
Brought together by accident, on a cold evening in 2009, six guys decided to embark on a musical adventure. The Fudge was born.
Every band member had his own musical background, and during that first meeting it became immediately clear that this diversity would prove to be one of the band’s biggest strengths. ‘People were constantly having new ideas. We wrote three songs during our first rehearsal’, says Darius Timmer (keys and vocals).
After that, the band decided to make an action plan. Midas Treub (lead vocals and guitar) recalls: ‘We wanted to play as many gigs as possible while working on new material at the same time. So we decided to enter all the competitions we could find, in order to finance our first album.’
And so The Fudge started playing at many Dutch venues with a whole range of instruments, effects and techniques. Combining Rock, Balkan, Folk, Pop, Psychedelic and Ska. They dubbed it Magnetic Rock: loud, tight, and great to dance to.
‘I think that the fact that we have so much fun on stage has helped us do well in competitions’, concludes Midas.
