The Breakfast Club Presents
The Crunch, The Zynx and Filthy Filthy
We are thrilled to welcome to Hull for the first time THE CRUNCH – an English/Swedish power pop group that is influenced by rock and punk. The word ‘legendary’ is often overused but we make no apology for using it to describe the band. Frontman Sören “Sulo” Karlsson comes from The Diamond Dogs, Mick Geggus guitar from Cockney Rejects, Dave Tregunna on bass from Sham 69 and The Lords of the New Church, Idde Schultz on Keyboard and backup vocals and Terry Chimes The Clash on drums.
The Crunch started January 2013 after Sulo met the members when writing the book Keep Yourself Alive in 2012. The first single “Down by the border”, was released on 7″ vinyl and a YouTube video on 3 June 2013, recorded at Berry Street Studio. The next single “Fire Again” was released for download and a YouTube video 14 October 2013. The full album “Busy making noise” was released 28 of October (Legal Records) on CD, Vinyl and download.
2015 the band’s second album “Brand new brand” was released, funded through Music Pledge and distributed through Cargo records. Support comes from Hull punk/ska favourites THE ZYNX and punk rock n roll band FILTHY FILTHY.
Iconic live music venue. One of the UK's most celebrated underground clubs.
