6/14/17: Old School Psychedelic Rock

Psychedelic-Rock-PPcorn

“You got that rainbow feel, but the rainbow has a beard.”

This week the Fuzz Factory was filled with the expansive and sometimes strangely experimental sounds of early psychedelic rock. I tried to touch on many variations of this new and emerging sound of the 60’s and early 70’s. I discovered some brand new songs in my research for this show and dropped them in the playlist. Mixed in with a few classics (like the one I quoted above) are some really rare tracks. Hope you enjoyed it if you were listening and if you didn’t, look closely at the playlist and discover some of these artist for yourself.

3/30/17: The Yardbirds Legacy

yardbirds

Last week on the Fuzz Factory, I explored the legacy of the Yardbirds. The Yardbirds are one of the most important rock & roll bands of all time. Many people credit the Yardbirds as the first band to use feedback in their songs. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page all played with the Yardbirds at one time, think about that for a minute.

So most of the second hour was dedicated to the large legacy of the Yardbirds. Here’s the playlist:

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!
