Background

Fonda 500 record collection

Formed by Simon Stone and Nicholas Broten in 1995, Fonda 500 have been releasing albums since 2000. Their songs appeared on the soundtrack to the British comedy television programme, Teachers on Channel Four, Colin Farrel film Intermission and E4's Skins (2010). They have built up a cult following since 2000, chiefly through their explosive live performances and their unique musical style, comparable to Black Sabbath jamming with the Beach Boys. Their first two albums were released on Village Records (Hull), followed by a signing to Truck Records (Oxford) for No. 1 Hifi Hair. Gentle Electric (Nottingham) released Spectrumatronicalogical Sounds and the ABCDELP. Their sixth album, Je m'appelle Stereo, was released on their own label Record mountain on 30 June 2008. After a recording hiatus during which the band continued to play live, 2014 saw the release of 8-Bit Sound System, a limited edition cassette which painstakingly rendered the entire of Eight Track Sound System into 8 bit. In November 2015 the band released 4 new singles to be accompanied by a limited edition Christmasette in December.
