R.I.P. Jo Dunne, former guitarist of “We’ve got a …FUZZBOX… and we’re gonna use it!!”

Dear all,

You may already be aware of the sad news that Jo Dunne, former guitarist of the all-girl band “We’ve got a …FUZZBOX… and we’re gonna use it!!” died of cancer on Friday night 26th October, just 43 years young. She passed away a month before her 44th birthday after a short 6 weeks’ battle against cancer.

Maggie, Jo’s sister and keyboard player in Fuzzbox has asked that I field some of the media activity, as she is helping to arrange the funeral and spending time with the family at this time.

Thank you to those of you who have sent us your kind messages of condolences, tributes in the press and radio plays of Fuzzbox songs, from indie anthems “Rules and Regulations” and “XX Sex” to chart hits “Pink Sunshine” and “International Rescue”.

Jo was very proud of the success the band and what we stood for. On finding out that we were (and are still) the UK’s most successful all-girl band (as opposed to vocal groups), we enjoyed a FAB reunion UK tour in 2010. (info attached). There will be a tribute event in aid of Cancer charities, but it is too soon to say what and when.

Jo will always be remembered as a cool, witty woman and a crackin’ guitarist! Continue reading
