After far too long, post punk band Fischer-Z are back to tour the UK !

With support from The Radio Set.

John Watts aka Fischer-Z’s 40-year career includes 20 albums and over 3000 concerts worldwide with success spanning continental Europe. Peter Gabriel, Steve Cropper and Dexy’s Midnight Runners have all contributed to recordings. In terms of shows, John’s band Fischer-Z have performed to crowds of 167,000 alongside James Brown in East Berlin and toured with both The Police and Dire Straits.

2017 saw the release of ‘Building Bridges’ and thanks to its success, Fischer-Z played to crowds reminiscent of the 79′ – 82′ hay day. Selling 10,000 tickets in Germany this autumn as well as selling out both De Roma (1800) in Antwerp (photo below) and the Paradiso (1500) in Amsterdam.

As a result, Fischer-Z go into 2018 stronger than every with tours booked across Europe and an exciting multimedia project to be released soon !

The Radio Set were formed in late 2016 and have already gone on to make a serious impact. Recording their Debut EP at Bella Union Studio in London the band have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Mixing in a diverse range of influences The Radio Set are breathing new life into the New Wave genre.

“Their debut EP backs up such early promise with five tracks that really slap down their calling card in the most confident of manners.” – The Crack

“It’s [EP#1] a positive statement of intent for a band that obviously have a very bright future.” – NE Volume
