Launching at last November’s Iceland Airwaves, within the space of a week, Fufanu had become the most talked about new band of the festival, made their UK live debut at London’s JaJaJa night and supported Damon Albarn at the Albert Hall - winning the approval of Brian Eno into the bargain - and leaving a trail of foaming plaudits in their wake.
Formerly operating as techno/ electronic duo, Captain Fufanu (while Kaktus and Gulli were still in their teens), with the addition of live instrumentation – and the band name shortened to a more economical Fufanu (“the Captain was left behind at a rave in Cologne”) – the pair began working up a dark, metronomic take on 70s and 80s European music. If clangorous metallic guitars and floor shaking syncopated bass are key factors in the band’s powerful circumspect post-punk, then the live show with it’s MBV-like furnace blasts of volume is a game changer: The mordant wit suggested by song titles like Plastic Peopleand opener Goodbye can shift up into thrillingly cold malevolence, fronted by ‘slyph-like’ singer Kaktus Einarsson’s magnetic stage presence.
“An utterly captivating rock band.” Huw Stephens, NME
“Gripping to watch… Kaktus is a star.” Evening Standard
“Part cold-wave, part post-punk, it's ferocious live...Their boldness and vast reserves of potential are what make them by far and away our favourite Icelandic act.” Dazed & Confused
“Strange, dark, discomforting and mesmerising in equal measure.” The Line of Best Fit
“Their performance left no room for nit-picking. Or doubt. Or anything really - a sheer sonic avalanche that swept up everyone in the room.” Drowned in Sound
“A tantalising amalgamation of The Fall, Bauhaus and the weirder corners of Blur’s output.” Q Magazine
