TUFF are now officially on 'myspace', so if you
want to join us as one of our 'friends', log on to
www.myspace.com/tuffbandduo; see you there!
(long overdue - ed).........
gig schedule for the band and duo (see Gigs), and the
long awaited four-track acoustic duo recording (the 'That's
Entertainment' EP) is finally completed and available now (while
- Nick returns triumphant to dep
for his replacement on bass Clive in rocking
Thornton heath gig (confused? You should be - ed)
TUFF receive excellent full-page coverage, including
touching interview with vocalist and founder member Mike
(what was he touching? - ed) in the Entertainments
section of the Kent Extra!
- TUFF (the duo) perform their
first original material in an eternity (not quite that long -
ed) when they appear at the Jools Holland inspired
"Super Jam 07" in Bexleyheath, and go down very well
(ooh-err! - ed). This follows a Pete Doherty style
rehearsal/performance in a pub garden in Cudham the night
before, which thrills the locals (apparently - ed).
TUFF get a mention on the Gary Crowley show on
Radio London in a chat with vocalist Mike (what do you mean
you missed it? - ed)
The good news is that TUFF's live performances
just keep getting better (thanks here to Richard for
improving the sound quality no end with the new equipment - ed)
and it's great that private functions are coming as a direct
result of catching the band live. The bad news is the amount of
spilled beer as a result of over-enthusiastic dancers crashing
into speakers; I suppose there's no point crying over it though
(that's milk - ed) and everyone loves to see the crowd
having a good time!
The duo is also going from strength to strength now that they've
reverted to their acoustic best (no backing tapes here; keep
music live! - ed) but still with a wide range of popular
material; acoustic doesn't just mean protest songs/dylan
(although he is covered - ed). They've even been winning the
plaudits of current top indie rockers! (but not quite
out-drinking them - ed).
Thanks also to Clive for making the odd dep. comeback over the
last couple of months (it was like going back in time -ed)
so much so that he's almost a permanent fixture (he is - ed)
and to the odd TUFF groupie we've dragged out of retirement
(odd being the appropriate....yes thanks - ed)
Finally, if you'd like to be kept informed of the latest gigs
and goings-on, you can leave your e-mail address on 'contact' on
this site and we'll add you to the e-mailing list.
See you at a venue soon - we love you all!
