Formed in Sheffield in 2005 with the intention of recreating the authentic flavour of the seminal punk bands of the late 70’s, three old friends, Mr Keef & Chris (The Grind/Rocket Scientists) and Muzz (Artery/Death Trash) teamed up with drummer Mike.
Countrywide gigs soon followed with the ‘Aural Graffiti’ & ‘Wish You Were Here?’ EP’s released on The Fuckwits own label in 2005 & 2006.
Late 2007 saw Muzz leave the band to concentrate on the newly reformed Artery, Adam joined on bass soon afterwards.
The Fuckwits spent most of 2008/9 writing & recording new material along with playing some local high profile shows
Joining Punker Pages records in late 2009 the final mixes were handed over in summer 2010 & The Fuckwits debut album was subsequently released in April 2011, a string of live dates soon followed.
Bassist Adam left the band in September 2011, fortunately an old friend, Jez (Adulescents UK/Bank Holiday Jez) was more than happy to join the lads on bass & complete the line up in October 2011.
Writing has begun for the next album as well as appearing live at venues across the UK.
