Originally called "We've got a fuzzbox and we're going to use it", emerged in the post-punk era and favourites of John Peel.

Weren't they on "The Word" many years ago (UK Channel 4 music show) and the bass player actually got her "fuzzbox" out for the viewing audience to see...Terry Christian nearly had a heart attack.

I'm sure their full name was "We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Going To Use It"
Here's one of their tracks...they had a little success in the UK in the 80's/90's

....Edit, i have just realised it was the Band L7 that flashed...apologies to any Fuzzboxees on here :D :oops:

Their second album, Big Bang was a great piece of 1989 pop and contained a version of Walking On Thin Ice

There’s just Vicky and Maggie now. Tina never rejoined when they got back together four / five years ago and Jo (Maggies sister) sadly died a few years back.
