Arches Venue Coventry
27th July 2017
Fighting Boredom try to get to as many gigs as we can, little local shindigs and big national festivals, whatever we can get to we do. So on a miserably cloudy Thursday in July we are at the Arches Venue in Coventry for the ‘Party In Hell’ tour with the jawdropping SoapGirls, the punky persuasions of Fat Randall and the experimental post punk of Futumche. Read what we thought below.
Another Thursday night at the Arches venue, the car parks full and as we walk in we pass two glamorous showgirls all glitter and big boots. There’s a fair crowd in watching Futumche. They are a trio from Coventry that describe themselves as playing ‘experimental rock/post punk’ which pretty much hits the mark.
They are not straightforward and as you may have gathered if you’ve been to fighting boredom before we are very much in favour of ‘not straight forward’. They have an angular post punk vibe, very tight and together. A hard stabbing sound that is at odds with the odd vocal style. A vocal that is off kilter and goes from straight storytelling to menacing and angry in a heartbeat.
