This week the Fuzz Factory had a great show filled with some heavy psych. The compare/contast segment featured two American bands that are definitely within the heavy psych realm. I’m referring to Nebula, from Los Angeles and All Them Witches from Nashville.

I’m looking forward to seeing All Them Witches again next week. I saw Nebula play in Chicago about 15 years ago. The had a gong that they set ablaze during the show. I’ll never forget it.

Hope you tuned in and got to hear all the good stuff.

9/15/16: Thee Hypnotics & Sun Dial

space-farm

This week the Fuzz Factory featured music from two bands that were well ahead of their time. Thee Hypnotics and Sun Dial (both from the UK) made most of their music in the very late 80’s and early to mid 90’s. They both floated against the grain by playing a style of music that would be often imitated and popularized by other bands in subsequent years.

Thee Hypnotics were definitely a precursor to the now well known fuzz rock/stoner rock sound. Sun Dial were creating their own prolific brand of space rock/psychedelic hard rock at a time when the world was listening to different things. As I said before, these are two bands that Fuzz Factory listeners should get to know. Even though they’re singled out this week as they subjects of the compare/contrast feature , both bands are permanently in regular Fuzz Factory rotation. Rock on!

25 Years Ago Today

25 years ago today the world smelled like teen spirit. The iconic video for Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit first aired 25 years ago today. The album Never mind was released later in the month.

It was a big deal. News spread real quick too. I still remember every moment of seeing this video for the first time. It seemed like millions of other saw it at that moment too. The world was never the same.
