Nearly 30 years after quitting The Cramps, Fur Dixon is reclaiming her place in rock ‘n’ roll. When Fur split from that iconic band, she left behind her electric bass, pink Mohawk and infamous bunny tail to re-establish herself as an angel-voiced singer and acoustic guitar singer-songwriter in the American roots music scene. She recorded 5 CDs for a quieter crowd of dedicated followers and steered clear of anything to do with jungle drums, feedback, distortion, and electric instruments. Fuck that. In 2016 she strapped her electric guitar back on and decided it was time to get back to her God-given superpower of doing what she does best which is rocking the fuck out. In her new band, WTFUKUSHIMA!, Fur is joined by Dusty Watson, the Earth-shattering drummer of ‘60s garage rock legends The Sonics, plus Fuzztones guitarist Bernard Yin and Archie Frugone best known as the bassist in South American rock band La Ley. In 2016, the band, called WTFUKUSHIMA! (pronounced What-the-Fukushi-ma!) started hitting stages across Los Angeles where Fur’s stage presence and nonstop energy has whipped audiences into a frenzy. Their new 2018 album, titled “RETURN 2 SENDER,” comprises 10 cuts of aggression, longing, the wettest surf guitar, tentacles between thighs, illegal highs, heartbreaking lows, and hot, smoldering, sultry songs that reaffirm that Fur Dixon has a lot more to put out than those throbbing, hypnotic bass-lines that still echo decades after she played them. Her voice is a thing of true beauty and raw power. The band’s sound is loud and wet. Produced by Paul Roessler (The Screamers), Dennis Moody and Fur Dixon, the album was self-released in 2018 and their very successful debut tour took Fur Dixon back to the UK Scotland and Spain for the 1st time in over 30 years.
