FUZZLERS, THE: Gourd of Truth: CS

Well, pretty bummed that this band broke my lifelong streak of never hearing a song called “Ball Fuzz.” Here’s a dozen arrangements, with maybe a third of them being frantic, warbly hardcore songs and the rest quick orchestrations of tape loops, altered voices, and people farting around with keyboards and effects. There are perhaps a few very brief blips that bring to mind Sockeye or something, but mostly it just seems like an inside joke unfortunately put to tape. –Keith Rosson (WFB)
