2/15/18: All Kindza Love Songs

So I was a day late and a dollar short. I ain’t worried, it’s not the first time that’s happened. Yesterday was Valentines Day. So tonight on the Fuzz Factory I decided to dip into my collection of songs about love. At the moment I have 666 song with love in the title. Coincidence? Depends on your point of view. Some people love to hate and others hate to love. I think we’ve all had moments of each when our emotions are involved. So this playlist is appropriately all over the place.

Here’s the playlist:

Last week, I featured a guy named Ty Segall. This dude puts out a new album, as a soloist or part of a band, two or three times a year. That’s some prolific production there. In fact, he’s just released a new double album. I’ll play some of that one in the coming weeks. I played some solo material and songs he’s recorded as a band.

1/11/18: Deftones & Primus

1598431452-Northern-California-Market-Study-Map

Happy New Year, let’s hope 2018 brings good things, especially to those in genuine need. It felt good to be back in the saddle again. Back in the saddle in the classroom and here in the SCAD-Atlanta Radio studio.

This week’s Compare/Contrast feature was Deftones and Primus. Both bands hail from Northern California. Both bands have pushed the boundaries of heavy rock & roll. On a personal level, both bands have been an acquired taste for me. Both bands have grown on me over the years. Other than that, I just wanted to make sure the playlist had some consistent muscle in order to start out the year strong.

Here’s the first Fuzz Factory playlist of 2018:

12/14/17: Final Show Of 2017

wc1767219

2017 is nearing it’s end. I think we’re gonna survive it too. I think 2016 did a good job of bracing us. We were prepared for a shitty 2017. On a related or unrelated note (depending on your perspective), the Fuzz Factory this week was a bit heavy on the psychedelics. Hehe.

At the end of the show I had a brief tribute to Pat DiNizio (The Smithereens) and Malcolm Young (AC/DC). Rest in peace.

Here’s the playlist. Catch you on the flip side, in 2018.

11/9/17: Social Distortion & Reverend Horton Heat

blue-skull

Last week on the Fuzz Factory I was inspired by my real life. Frequent listeners know that’s how it goes around here. My conversations during the week can lead to something here in the Fuzz Factory. That happened this week with my choice to compare/contrast Social Distortion and Reverend Horton Heat. Two very good bands that I’ve played but never featured on the show before. Both bands carry that great rockabilly punk vibe. On a side note, it’s not a coincidence that my choice was also inspired by a certain woman with many tattoos.

There’s no Fuzz Factory tonight or next Thursday, due to finals week and the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ll be back in December.
