Next From The Littlehampton Stable: Hyperfuse
Last modified: 06 Jul 2004
Fresh from Littlehampton, Delirious' hometown, comes another group to keep your eye on. A new young band by the name of 'Hyperfuse' are definitely one to watch out for in the future. A quick look at the band's line-up shows a few surnames that will be rather familiar to Delirious? fans.
Hyperfuse consist of: Tom Smith (Lead vocals & Rhythm guitar), Jamie Mellor (Bass & Backing Vocals), Steve Evans (Lead Guitar), Chris Neal (Keys & Backing Vocals) and Ben Thatcher (Drums). Infact you could say that this band is the next generation of Delirious? Tom Smith is Delirious? front man Martin Smith's nephew, and Ben Thatcher is Delirious? bass player Jon's younger brother.
The band already have a couple of gigs under their belts, including a support slot for the band 'Steve' in Croydon. As well as covering the odd song by their mentors (such as 'Rain Down'), they also have their own selection of songs. Delirious? fans will have a chance to check out Hyperfuse this week at the Grassrootz Festival in Tunbridge Wells on 10th July, with both Delirious? and Hyperfuse scheduled to perform.
