SUMO, now 3 years young, started life in a small Thai restaurant on the seafront in Southsea. Oh how things have change since then. The SUMO love has now spread far and wide with appearances at Global Gathering, Bestival, Fair Trade Fashion shows, Snowbombing in Austria, Beachbombing in Cornwall, pre-Sonar parties in Barcelona, Street/Beach/Boat (Pls delete as appropriate) Parties, impromptu parties at Southsea’s lil gem ‘The Little Johnny Russell’ which has seen the likes of the Scratch Perverts, Sunshine Underground, Rodney P & Skitz (of Dub Pistol fame), then, of course, there’s our monthly residency at our beloved Wedgwood Rooms in Southsea which has played host to whole wealth of international top draw talent including the likes of Gilles Peterson, Roots Manuva, Norman Jay, Yoda, Hot Chip, Rob Da Bank, Bez and Kid Carpet to name but a few.
To keep moving things onwards and upwards in 2008, SUMO is looking forward it’s first major live performance from the one and only Audio Bullys as well as a DJ set from legend in the making Mr Zane Lowe.
