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!
