Doors open 7.30 pm, Band on stage 8.15 pm. Admission price: £5 adv, £7 on the door.
At the Brudenell Social Club in the Games Room.

Fusebox announces the first CIRCUITBREAKER – in a series of curated pop-up shows across the city, continuing the Fusebox commitment to bring world-class, cutting-edge music to Leeds.



“a scattered assault of slightly math-rock explorations, soaring post-rock guitars, grooving African rhythms and glitchy, pulverising electronics”
Formed of keyboardist Dan Nicholls (who has worked with Squarepusher and Matthew Herbert), drummer Joshua Blackmore (Troyka) and guitar and synth man Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers, Heritage Orchestra) – this band has created, via their debut release Brokespeak, an album that eschews genre and feels free from time-stamps. They are an intensely high-octane group that fire off frantic tempos and intricate complexities, yet they also retain an accessibility through fluid grooves and an engaging sense of melodic intuition


A welcome and long awaited return to Fusebox for Cameron Vale who first played for us on 28th November 2014, when they made and left their mark.

Formed in Leeds in summer 2013, Cameron Vale is made up of members from diverse musical backgrounds. In their music, they combine improvisation, jazz, rock and electronics with original compositions. Expect a high energy blend of polyrhythms, improvisation and riffage.

Sloth Racket

Sam Andreae – tenor sax, Cath Roberts – baritone sax, Anton Hunter – guitar, Seth Bennett – bass, Johnny Hunter – drums

Sloth Racket was formed for a Jazz North East gig at Gateshead Jazz Festival 2015 by saxophonist Cath Roberts, bringing together some of the UK’s finest improvisers from Manchester, Macclesfield and London. The music takes as its starting point a set of pieces written especially for that festival, combining regular musical notation with some graphic scoring. These provide broad frameworks for the band to navigate together, balancing freedom and structure. So far the results have ranged through many sound worlds including free jazz explorations, extremely heavy grooves, spiky duo sparring and minimal improv textures…

This is an exciting new trio comprising of double bassist Jenni Molloy, poet/vocalist Rommi Smith (Salt Song) and pianist/composer Laura Cole (Metamorphic), which fuses spoken word, improvisation and poetry. The spirit of this project is based on collaborative, collective and supportive trio improvisations, coupled with the emotional and musical exploration of texts written by Rommi Smith. Following a very succesful and enjoyable first gig at Wainsgate Chapel, in Hebden Bridge in July, the trio are very pleased to have been invited to play at Fusebox in Leeds on Decembedr 19th 2014.
