1/26/17: Fuzz Factory Sweden

20681805194_896922be30_b

I’m always psyched to bring the Fuzz Factory to anyone willing to listen. This week I was super psyched. Why? Because the entire show was dedicated to one place, Sweden. In case you weren’t aware, Sweden is the Fuzz Capitol of the World. SO much excellent hard rock, psychedelic rock and fuzz/stoner rock comes out of that country. It’s actually kind of amazing.

The timing of this theme is due to the upcoming Truckfighters concert. Next Tuesday, my favorite of all Swedish bands is playing the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta. I’ll be there. I cannot wait.

Listen to the Fuzz Factory on SCAD Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org) every Thursday from 8-10 PM (EST).

Until the next time, catch you on the flip side. Here’s the super fat fuzzy 100% Swedish playlist:

Sweden: Fuzz Capitol of the World

Tonight, is a very special night. The entire show will be dedicated to one place, Sweden. In case you weren’t aware, Sweden is the Fuzz Capitol of the World. SO many excellent bands (mostly hard rock and fuzz rock) come out of that country. It’s kind of amazing.

The timing of this theme is due to the upcoming Truckfighters concert. Next Tuesday, my favorite of all Swedish bands is playing the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta. I’ll be there. I cannot wait.

Tune in tonight. Mind the feedback.

8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).

Here is a taste of Swedish Fuzz:

Fighting Trucks

Truckfighter at Truck Stop

Last week I was on the road fighting trucks. Not really, but I realized I was wearing this shirt and had to take a photo at a truck stop. I had to get back on the road quick, I didn’t want to have to explain that my shirt is the name of a band from Sweden to a group of angry truckers.

The Fuzz Factory returns next Thursday night from 8-11 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio. Be there. Get your real rock & roll fix.

3/6/14: Truckfighters, Dozer & Greenleaf

Hello Fuzz Factory listeners and followers. Fuzz Rock = Sweden. Drawing inspiration from looking forward. Next Monday is the highly anticipated Truckfighters concert. Highly anticipated here in the Fuzz Factory music galaxy. Next Monday, I’m going to dismiss class and walk two blocks to a venue hosting one of my favorite bands on the opening night of their American tour. That’s an alignment of time that’s as close to perfect as you’ll ever see.

Therefore, I decided to make my Compare/Contrast Special Feature a selection of top shelf Fuzz Rock from Sweden, the Fuzz Capital of the World. In addition to Truckfighters, I played a few songs from Dozer and Greenleaf (a Dozer based side-project). All three are stellar hard rock bands and have some of the best songs the fuzz rock genre has to offer.

Well – that’s all I have to say at the moment. These days, every minute I am not sleeping I am working. So back to work, but not until after this playlist is posted. Tune in to the Fuzz Factory this coming Thursday for two more hours of the best rock & roll radio found across the internets. The secret sauce is in the segue.
