Che Fu revisits debut
Che Fu revisits his 1998 debut album 2 B S.Pacific (produced by Andy Morton aka Submariner), later this month at Tyler St Garage, playing it in full. The album was his first major statement after getting fired from Supergroove.
He'd set up his name as a solo singer with his contribution to Chains by DLT, which hit number one in 1996 and stayed there for five weeks straight, and led to Che taking part in the True School live revue that toured the Big Day Out circuit (here and Oz) in January 1997. He'd also guested on The Son by Dam Native, that came out as a single in 1997.
The first single, Scene III, peaked at #4 in the singles chart and stayed in the charts for 21 weeks. The followup, Without a Doubt, hit number one the first week of October 1998. The album debuted at #2 in the album charts the first week of November 1998, and stayed in the charts for 16 weeks. Third single Waka peaked at #6 in late June of the following year.
The performance happens May 30th, as part of a series of shows at Tyler St Garage for NZ Music Month (incl @Peace, Julien Dyne and more). Limited free entry, GeorgeFM has vip tickets to giveaway. Doors open 730pm.
