Well, we would like to begin with thanking all of the crowd who came down to show their support tonight. Fubar astounded us all with a fifty minute set of simply jaw dropping acoustic versions of their material. Primarily classed as a rock band (The term "Metal" cannot encapsulate the musical intricacies that these performers are capable of.) they confided that they themselves were somewhat nervous with showcasing their tracks in such an unfamiliar setting and format. My how it all worked out so well, picking songs from their debut album and treating all of us to some new tracks specifically written for the performance tonight, a hush filled the room with every note played.

The first thing that strikes one is just how talented these young musicians are and just how much potential is evident in both their content and delivery. The lyrics are delivered in beautiful harmonies, shared amongst the three guitarists interwoven with the intricate licks, the bass is prominent and flawless, noticable as a standalone sound without ever imposing itself on the listener. Stripped down to a simple set of jimbae, the rythm was consistent and accompanied the
other musicians splendidly. Overall, using no microphones or major amplifiers, the tightness of the set was unfallable, captivating all present and really leaving everyone with a fine memory of a particularily unique show.

Finally, thanks guys, for giving such a performance. Fubar are a band who's inevitable rise will be well deserved. - Redlight Records - Colin

Bio

The band began in 2003 in Scariff, Co. Clare, Ireland. It started off as a cover band, playing all the good songs that other local bands didn't play. Slowly FUBAR began to write new original songs and in 2004 No Control was born. More originals slipped into the sets and less covers. After a couple of years of dispersed gigging around the mid-west, FUBAR returned to the studio, where the FUBAR EP was recorded. A five track project, and a step forward from No Control. The band then began gigging again, still irregularly, and mostly in Galway, though they have played in Dublin.
As for 2007: Well Call It Call It and Warhorses are awaiting a studio mix and some mastering, possibly to be released on the end of new FUBAR prints. The band performed at Mantua and SAI Festivals in Roscommon and Leitrim in the last few weeks and did a couple of rare acoustic gigs a while back, one instore in Red Light Records, Galway and one in the Mountshannon Arts festival.
FUBAR hope to pack up shop and relocate to England some time in early 2008.
