Big Muff presents the Franceens With guests The Madding Crowd, Avalanche Party & Turf

Please note this is an 18+ event

The Franceens are a 3 piece garage punk band from York UK. They are known for their ferocious, engaging live shows, constant gigging, and their high-energy garage punk music. They officially started in February 2013 and have been going strong ever since.

Hailing from Manchester, formed in April 2010, we are comprised of Singer and Guitarist Ben Corry, Lead Guitarist Dominic Corry, Bass Guitarist Claud Corry and Drummer Danny Kristof. We have released 3 EP’s, 2010’s ‘Because We Are Too Much’, 2011’s ‘They’ll Love You More For Who You’re Not’ and 2013’s ‘A Stitch in Time’, from which our debut single ‘When I Go Walking in the Rain’ was taken.

Avalanche Party were formed high in the wind swept, bracken laden heights of the North Yorkshire Moors by two brothers who spent their summers hunting with bows and arrows and camping by firelight, and their winters snowed into their isolated hill top home with nothing but the sounds of Bo Diddley, Link Wray, Wilko Johnson and Jimi Hendrix to keep them company. Guitars replaced the bows and arrows and the boys played their first gig at the age of 12. Music was in their blood.

Met during a violent fracas, at the wedding of an elderly relative. The function band fortunately didn’t live to tell the tale.
