4/5, 4/12 & 4/19: Two Hours Of Great Rock & Roll

The last eight days have been a blur. In the time, I’ve seen five (count ’em), five Fuzz Factory bands. First up were the Foo Fighters at Georgia State Stadium. Then came Stone Temple Pilots at the Masquerade (Heaven). Next up was the Black Angels at the Masquerade (Hell). Then it was the Brian Jonestown Massacre at the EARL. Last but not least was the Melvins at Masquerade (Heaven again). Wow! Check out my Instagram page (brettcallero) to see many photographs of these concerts.

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.

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.

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!

Drawback – Gomer Pyle

Melody Lane – Uncle Acid
