intro

Infectious 60's inspired pop from acclaimed Hull super group back with a third album


Agh! But I wanna listen to it! Shhhh, just for a while, be quiet… SHAN’T! Stamping of feet from the child and a reticent sigh from me, alright then, you can listen to it Just.once.more. My inner child’s new favourite band is Fonda 500 and it won’t let me forget about it. Fonda 500 was blasted into space as a foetus in the 1960s as an experiment, with only a collection of sixties’ 12” LPs, a casio keyboard and a plastic tambourine for company. It endlessly circumnavigated the globe, never growing up, not of this world yet intrinsically and inescapably from earth, with its four-track composing, contemplating, observing and all-knowing. It sampled sounds of the ether, sounds of the cosmos and galaxies, sounds of space. A pupil of the universe, it cloned itself and now it is four. The inner child’s limbs loosen as it hears the music arrive crackling across the airwaves and it smiles and gurgles and bobs up and down joyously dislodging nascent memories. The music skips along, the child gets that faraway look, as it connects with the distant Fonda500 collective somewhere above the earth spinning round and round. All-knowing. Don’t wait any longer for we are amongst you now…

Interview (2004)
Fonda 500 - Interview
Battling against the perils of a soundcheck and an over enthusiastic DJ, Anthony Dhanendran's interview with Fonda 500 at a recent London gig goes disastrously wrong, but still manages to come to a happy conclusion

Enjoyably "stupidly happy pop" on latest offering from Hull-based musical mavericks Fonda 500, which manages "to stay just on the right side of twee"
