Preview of – The last Washing Machine night of the summer
The last Washing Machine night of the summer is on Saturday 29th July at The Hunter Club, and they have a rather exciting line-up: Headlining are Colchester’s F.O.X, who’ve just finished a European stadium tour supporting fellow Essex electro-superstars Depeche Mode (DM’s singer Dave Gahan is a big fan and personally invited them to tour), which saw them playing to literally hundreds of thousands of people. Supporting they have Sudbury two-piece AMETHYSTS, whose recent single ‘Purple Blood’ has received a lot of attention, and seen them invited to play Secret Garden Party and a special BBC Introducing event at Snape Maltings; also excitedly we welcome Manningtree’s BESSIE TURNER, whose debut single ‘Big Sleep’ (released in May on SuperGlu drummer Ben Ward’s new Don’t Try label) was immediately championed by BBC Radio One’s Huw Stephens, resulting in her being invited to play at Latitude Festival by the BBC. Also on the line-up is BLOOD TALK, the new project from Bury-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Barny Cutter.

F.O.X are an electro-synth-pop trio based in Essex. Formed in 2013, they released their debut album ‘Chimera’ and spent time touring across the USA with The Deer Tracks, including five celebrated appearances at SXSW.
Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode is a champion of the band and has personally invited them to support DM on their ‘Delta Machine’ and ‘Spirit’ stadium tours, which saw the band playing to over 400,000 people across Europe.
In 2016 they released the single ‘Half Way To Nowhere’ from new two-part album ‘Hypoxia’, gaining support from MTV and VIVA.
F.O.X’s relentless touring schedule has also seen them touring the UK with such artists as Dua Lipa, Tom Odell, Professor Green and Devlin.
