Tongue Fu


Close Box


Sept 7th Festival No.6


We’re delighted to be performing at Festival No.6 in Portmeirion, Wales with Robin Ince, Salena Godden and Jan Blake as special guests

Sept 10th at London Wonderground

Tongue Fu returns to the Spiegeltent at London Wonderground for a double bill with brand new show Hunting Pigs.
Tongue Fu will feature two of the UK’s finest spoken word artists: Hollie McNish – funny, sharp, Youtube smashing political supermum and
Polarbear – author, spoken word innovator, rapper, BEAR!
Hunting Pigs…
Tongue Fu frontman Chris Redmond and author-standup-poet Anna Freeman have written a new show with the fellas from The Tongue Fu Band.  It’s a comedy/spoken word/music kind of caper about finding our power – in animals, awkward sex, imaginary parties, babies and Terminator. It’s got David Attenborough in it, sort of. And it’s a bit like Street Fighter. Tickets here

On July 10th 2013 we launched our very first album Tongue Fu Tapes Vol. 1.


It’s a scorching compilation of live highlights from an incredible, as yet unheard archive, recorded over four years at Tongue Fu’s home – East London’s Rich Mix.


The album features Chris Redmond, Soweto Kinch, Kate Tempest, Jonny Fluffypunk, Jacob Sam-La Rose, Femi Martin, Ross Sutherland, Indigo Williams, Zia Ahmed, Joe Dunthorne, Francesca Beard, Anna Freeman, Homecut, Toby Thompson and John Hegley, with pretty gobsmacking accompaniments from the Tongue Fu band.


Needless to say we are very pleased with ourselves!  The music jumps from honky tonk, to dubstep, deep jazz, minimalist beats, tango, hip-hop and so much more.  The CD is available from gigs and soon from this very website.  It is also available on iTunes and Amazon.




We’re really pleased with our very first anthology called Liminal Animals.  It’s currently only available at gigs but we’re in the process of sorting out an online shop.  Please bear with us while we get this set up.  If you can’t wait till the shop’s up and running or the next gig, please email us.  Thanks
