Impotent Fury was started in 1997 by Fred Deakin. Initially it took the form of an innovative and deranged club night at the 333 in the Hoxton area of London. The night incorporated a six foot high wooden device known as the Wheel of Destiny which had twelve varied musical genres written on it: every thirty minutes the Wheel would be spun and whatever genre it landed on would be played for that section of the night.
Soon after the club's launch Impotent Fury Records and Tapes came into existence. Its main function was to release the records of Lemon Jelly, the electronica duo comprised of Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen. After releasing three ten inch EPs independently, a partnership with XL Recordings led to three albums and five singles.
After further partnerships with Universal and Ministry of Sound led to two critically acclaimed compilations, Impotent Fury returned to independent releases in 2010. A seven inch remix of post-punk pioneer Paul Haig and the debut album of jazz-folk-techno collective Flashman are the first fruits of this era. Live events are also on the cards.
Did you read this far? It's very hard to encapsulate what I'm trying to do in words - hopefully you get the "vibe" by looking at all the images on the site, watching the videos and listening to the music. Actually I feel like deleting all this and starting again but it's very late at night and I've got to stick something in here so this will have to do. If you've got any better ideas please let me know. Or not. As you please.
