FUZZTONES: Preaching to the Perverted: CD

May 13, 2011

Have you ever climbed out of bed at four in the morning, turned on the TV, and found a bunch of luchadors bodyslamming werewolves while go-go dancers shook their stuff in the background? Remember the music? That’s what this CD sounds like. These guys have been around since the early ‘80s, so it’s no surprise that they have the fuzzed-out garage rock thing perfected at this point. It doesn’t sound old and dusty though. It sounds fresh and vibrant, with Vox organ and guitar solos running through its veins. They’ve even got a song called “Old” (“I’m past my prime, I’ve done my time”) that somehow manages to sound youthful and reckless.
