Duncan Harding was a practising medical doctor with a taste for making dark, twisted pop music. The resultant combination is 'Fightclub', a musical soundtrack to everything that is weird and wonderful in the World.
Fightclub's sound and influences are wide ranging , drawing from elements of
Rock, Hip Hop and Electronic music. The result of this musical stew is
somewhere between Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Beck and T.Rex.
Duncan subsequently recruited the services of bass playing belly dancing
actress Ione whose solid playing and awesome stage presence act as the
perfect on-stage foil.
In a strange coincidence another doctor, Rebecca, joined the band on
keyboards. An eye surgeon with a classical music background in piano and
voice. Rebecca Ford brings beauty and subtlety to the Fightclub sound which
juxtaposes perfectly with the band's heavyily aggressive signature.
A seasoned drummer with various bands and deals behind him, Mike Grocott is the latest addition to the fold. Mike's extensive live touring experience
and great skills have brought power and solidity to the band. MikeÃ¢Â€Âšs edgy
and explosive style, along with his use of electronics and triggers, are
proving to complement and enhance the Fightclub sound.
Fightclub have been recording recently for their debut EP, a three track
affair which looks set to introduce them into the public eye. The band's
cover of the classic house track, 'You Got The Love' is set to be a
legendary reinterpretation. Teamed with live favourite 'Insane' and the fat
electronic stomp of ' I Might Forget' the EP is a pretty impressive calling
card. Music industry types are already taking interest in the band and
another Fightclub track, 'Save Me' has been used on the end titles to a
forthcoming Dennis Hopper and Asia Argento movie, 'The Keeper'.
Recently Duncan has been writing songs with ex-Skunk Anansie guitarist
'Ace', who accidentally stumbled across some early demos and was keen to
meet Duncan. The duo have now been writing together for some time with some very exciting results..watch this space!
