At the Norwich Waterfront, one Saturday two years ago, five peope met for the first time at rawkkkkkkkkkskool...well Joanna and Lisa had met before obviously because they are sisters... umm...anyway on this day, Natalie a bored_with_school drummer, Denice, a lapsed singer-songwriter, Joanna a former bassist from Positive Shrew, Lisa the drummer from mansun tribute band Little Kix and umm Gary (we have no idea what happened to him..Gary where are you??) instantly formed *that 5-piece-with-two-drummers*  - Mavis. They played one gig, the very day after they formed at Norwich Waterfront and then split up....

 

many many months later Joanna Denice and Natalie met again and started to rehearse songs in D’s house, initially just playing anything that was written 5 times as fast and 10 times as loud - though eventually we started to whittle it down to a set list and occasionally hire out           Noisebox and the (much better) Plug Studios after Denice’s neighbours threatened to kill them and her cat kept eating all their plectrums and shitting in a plant pot at rehearsals. They played their debut in 2002 at the bank in Norwich and recently played the Ferryboat.

 

The three piece agreed on the name foxholski from a list that also contained *the tampaxes* *pat butcher fan club* ‘mother o'reily or sommet’ and ‘The Coxless Three’. They also went through a series of temporary guitarists - a salient proportion had round faces and would walk into the chandelier...a sure sign to us by the 5th one that they wouldn’t be staying... so they remained a three piece and foxholski was on the map...hurrah! Now known as the reduced foxholski company due to founding member drummer currently shooting tigers in Africa.
