How does Desmond Foster get that hot, yet smooth guitar sound? We can now reveal that the secret is that before each show, Desmond irons his strings. "I started off on the one dot mark", says Des "but these days, I'm up to the three dot mark on the Iron for that really scorching sound". Drummer, Hux Flux, prepares his drum sticks by marinating them in fresh brewed, black rough ground echo-logical coffee beans, just thirty minutes before hitting the stage. "Nothing like a bit of caffeine to get the drums singing", says Hux.

If you are lucky enough to have tickets, you can check out the result tonight (July 29) at New Morning Club in France and on Friday, July 1 when BFE will headline the Ile Utopie Festival in Lyon, France.
