Fula have existed in one form or another for around eight years,
in which time they have honed their sound and experimented with
their audience. After long periods of writing and recording music,
the band started to take the music to the public. In 1998, they
performed a series of gigs around their hometown area, developing
a strong local following. In 1999, they took the gigs a stage further,
and found a place on the Manchester showcase circuit. Here they
really developed their stagecraft as they entertained and unnerved
audiences at venues such as The Band on the Wall, The Roadhouse
and Night & Day.
Later that year, the band recorded and released a 14 Track CD.
Called 'Dark Matter', it was well received by fans and critics alike.
Critical comments included 'Simply awesome', 'A rollercoaster of
emotions', 'Exquisite keyboards... sublime guitar', 'Mere words
are not enough'. Tracks from the CD have been played on BBC Radio
Derby, as well as radio stations in Poland, Brazil and The United
States. More gigs followed, with Cambridge, Manchester and Liverpool
universities being added to the list of venues played.
In the year 2000, Fula started recording a follow-up to Dark Matter,
and performed a number of gigs in Buxton and Derby, and entertained
the Classic Rock Society in Rotherham. By 2002, the new album was
complete and "The Beautiful, The Delicate and The True"
