Before the Stunning, Before the Sawdoctors, there was the FUZE! Thanks to the efforts of our fellow graduate Ursula Killeen, Galway's first rock group to achieve national fame will reform for the first time in over 25 years to play at the UCG Grad Reunion Bash!Five or the band members were UCG students who got together in early 1979 and launched themselves onto an unsuspecting world at the Unity Variety Show; later supported U2 & Pretenders... and achieved success in the Pop Single Charts with 'Stone Age Man' & 'It's A Sunday Morning' before splitting up in 1982.

Interestingly, their first gig outside the UCG campus was sharing the bill with Big G at a HistriSoc Party in Salthill. So history will repeat itself in November when DJ Gerry Sexton will return with his magical 'Ration of Passion' 70s-themed Disco!

The full events programme will be published later this week on the website. The NUIG Alumni Office will send out a postal invitation to all 1978 & 1979 graduates at the weekend.
