Fuser - Fuser Newsletter Interview

22 Nov 2009 // An interview by Shade
What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Played with Luck (Jordan Luck from The Exponents) once and at the end of the their set they got us up to sing the last couple of songs with them. He let us play 'Why Does Love Do This To Me' with Fuser and the Luck band on stage at the same time. I remember that song from School so it was a great feeling to be playing it with the original guy standing next to us. Very cool feeling. If your reading this Jordan, Thanks very much mate.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Lots of great venues round the place. In Auckland The Dogs Bollix. Great venue, great atmosphere and great people to work with. Also love playing at The Kentish in Waiuku. Actually anywhere is a good place to play but these really stand out.

What NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

There are so many great acts out there at the moment but Bryce Wastney and Invader Cain are 2 special favourites. Bryce is a great solo artist and friend of ours. He works hard and has great acoustic folkie tunes you can tap your toe to. We also love Invader Cain. They are high energy and huge fun to watch.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

What happens on tour............................ There was this 1 show in Palmy where we were going for a nicely timed jump and John fell off the stage. He tried to grab his amp to stop the fall but pulled that off stage as well. Jackass would have been proud. The amp survived as well.

How did you come up with the name Fuser?

I work for a photocopier company and a 'Fuser unit' is a common name for the hot part of a copier that melts the toner on the page. A mate of mine said 'Fuser sounds cool' and although I wasn't keen initially because of the tie in to my job, over a period of time it stuck.

How do you describe your music?

Blend of Hard rock and dirty rock and roll. We call it Atomic Rock.
What can we expect to see from Fuser over the next year?
We are 3 quarters of the way through album 2 at the moment. We have the 1st single, 'World Of Make Believe', playing on Hauraki and are expecting to have album out March 2010. We also have some tours in the works.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Do what inspires you. Don't try to be anyone else and most importantly be proud of your ability to make music.
 

About Fuser

Fuser first rocked the NZ music scene in 2006 with the release of their self-titled debut album, Fuser. And they certainly fell firmly on their feet. It wasn’t long before heads in the music industry began to spin and take notice of this Auckland based atomic-rock ensemble.

Soon after the release of Fuser, two of the band’s songs were chosen for the NZ On Air funded programme, Off The Record, a show run by The Rock FM radio station. Through The Rock FM, Fuser was a recipient of the highly sought after Rock Scholarship. If all this wasn’t enough for a band in their first year, they also completed a Nationwide NZ tour, and as a huge bonus, had their song The Rules included on a compilation CD for UK magazine, Rocksound – an honour shared with other great Kiwi acts like The Have, Blindspott and Redline.

2007 saw the release of the NZ On Air funded video You Will Know, which received airplay on music channel C4. This was also the year Fuser began to mature as a live band. At their inception, though all individually experienced musicians, Fuser was purely a studio project and the guys had little live performance experience together. So what’s the best way to hone the art of the live show? Jump out of the pan and into the fire of course! The band gigged relentlessly as either headliners or as support for Deja Voodoo, The Tutts, Bleeders, Jordan Luck and Storm Large (from the TV show Rock Star Supernova) they also completed a nationwide tour supporting the Phil Rudd (AC/DC) produced Las Vegas all girl rock band Jaggedy Ann.
