We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It!! or simply Fuzzbox are an English alternative rock group. Formed in Birmingham in 1985, the all-female quartet originally consisted of Vix (Vickie Perks), Magz (Maggie Dunne), Jo Dunne and Tina O'Neill. The band's name was shortened to Fuzzbox for the U.S. release of their first album. They disbanded in 1990 after releasing two studio albums, and reunited in 2010 for a series of concerts. A second reunion was confirmed in 2015.

Links To Peel

Peel discovered the band through the Vindaloo record label, founded by Robert Lloyd, singer of the Nightingales, who he would play regularly on his show. Peel wasn't a fan of the band's name and mentioned on his 27 February 1986 (BFBS) show that he thought the name was ludicrous:

'We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It!!' which I agree is a ludicrous name for a band and I'm sure they'll get fed up with being called that eventually.

Eventually the band did shortened it's name.
