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.

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:

The Fuzz Factory Returns Tonight

Don’t call it a comeback! I’ve been here for years!

Holiday break has ended and school is back in session. That means the Fuzz Factory is back too. Tune in tonight for two hours of great rock & roll (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

Tonight’s compare/contrast feature is Deftones and Primus. Two heavy bands with a touch of the weird. Sounds good to me.

Sounds like a good way to start 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.
