3/29/18: Regular Fuzz

Regular Fuzz. That’s the phrase I use to refer to the usual straight up great rock & roll you hear on this radio program. Many weeks I’ll have a theme, as regular listeners know. Sometimes, I’ll feature a couple of bands at the end of the show. Well, I’ve decided to simply have Regular Fuzz shows, the anti-feature. Just two hours of straight up rock & roll. Two hours of the thick guitar riffs, psychedelic rock twists and spaced out grooves you’re accustomed to hearing over the internet airwaves of the Fuzz Factory.

Here’s the regular (as in regular high quality) playlist:

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.

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:
