Fur Dixon, WTFUKUSHIMA!

Legends of surf music join forces with Fur Dixon of The Cramps for a night of rock ‘n’ roll and reverb, including a tribute to Dick Dale, at The Old Steeple on Wednesday, April 24. Dixon’s new band WTFUKUSHIMA!! is comprised of surf all-stars Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, The Sonics) on drums, Sam Bolle (Dick Dale) on bass and Bernard Yin (Fuzztones, BellRays) on lead guitar. Dixon started her music career as a young, wild bass player for The Whirlybirds, playing on her first 7” single at 21 years old and then going on to form the Hollywood Hillbillys, one of the only bands in history that counted live on-stage chickens among their band mates. Famous psychobilly band The Cramps became fans of Fur and spirited her away and off to Europe where she became the first bassist of their live lineup. With Old Steeple owner and surf guitarist Paul Beatie sitting in for a few songs, it’s sure to be a high-energy and fun night in Ferndale!
