The rest of the oddly numbered (but great) Fuzzface Series

So, did ya enjoy the first half of the series? ? Don't see how ya couldn't... and it's just a warm up for today!  Now, listen carefully, my children... we are up to Volume 8, which consists of NINE discs, ALL titled "Zarius Knights of Fuzzface"... NO IDEA, don't ask me, but there's some fucking great garage rock on these discs. Then, finally, we will end up with the single disc Volume 9 ("Revival Garage Internacional").... the numbering system is as bizarre as bizarre can be, but it is so very easy to forgive. Trust me. Again, please discuss, leave comments, I'm "feeling" this stuff right now, and you know how I can get (like when I was feeling "psych" or "punk" and I have just TONS of this kinda stuff too.....

So, here we are... Volume 8 disc 1.... I don't think the discs are "themed" especially, just one blast after another of three-chord guitar, farfisa organ and screaming.... The Chesterfield Kings blast "Baby Doll" out of the park on this one, but don't forget The (much underappreciated, IMO) Brood with the fabulous "Writin on the Wall", The Lyres , The Cynics, whom we all know are great.... not so well known would be, say, Captain Future & the Zapguns, The Bogeymen,  Crimson Shadows, and, like some of yesterday's stuff, there are four tracks referred to simply as "Bonus Track", no title or artist given. For some reason, I absolutely LOVE that... don't ask me why.

More "Bonus Tracks" on disc 2, but how about this lineup: Baby Woodrose, The Fuzztones, Yard
Trauma, The Nomads, and the Gruesomes, mixed in amongst 1-2-5, Outta Place, Queen Hornets... this set brilliantly melds together "greats" of the genre with unknown stuff, these comps work as "radio programming" the way great comps do.

Disc 3 has yet more mystery "bonus tracks", along with certifiable greats such as the Mummies ("House on the Hill", 1313 Mockingbird Lane, The Ramblers, along with Falling Spikes, Tony Borlotti E I Suoi Flauers, Manganzoides, and LOTS more. Moving on, Disc 4  (yep, more "bonus tracks"), features the fab Launderettes, Marry Me Mary, Fleshtones, and the Stomachmouths, stacked alongside The Nuthins, Teddy Boys From the  Crypt, Agenetes Secretos... there are VERY few acts repeated ad infinitum (another pitfall that this comp avoids), each disc is, really, consistently brilliant, listenable, and you just sit there in amazement at the wonderful sloppy amateurism of these bands that simply rock out, I would bet you a million bucks that not ONE band on this entire comp would actually COMPLAIN about being featured here so MORE PEOPLE CAN HEAR THEM, like, you know, some bands might do (Hi, Green Day, Corrosion of Conformity, Bratmobile, Sublime)...... the world is divided into two camps... one that "gets it".... one that "doesn't"

Plenty-a great shit on disc 5 as well, Headcoatees, The Pandoras, The Tell-Tale Hearts, and the Kartoons, as well as lesser-known greats Optic Nerve, Lost Marbles, Los Impossibles, and Get Lost. How about Disc 6? Sorry, no let down there either, Fuzztones ("The People In Me"), Thanes, Chesterfield Kings, Lyres.... all have been featured earlier, but by no means over-exposed, as well as the wonderfully named Tuna Tacos, Muck and the Mires, Slow Slushy Boys, Lust-O-Rama.....the great thing about primitive garage rock is we will (literally) NEVER run out of it, as long as we have electric guitars, marijuana, beer, and garages, and people who still make music for FUN rather than false dreams of fame.

Disc 7 features a track from the fantastic Miracle Workers, Kek 66, the Crawdaddys ripping of "Oh Baby Doll", the legendary Monks ("Hang Up"), .. .for what more could you ask? Well, how about Cornflake Zoo, The Woody Peakers, and Fuad & the Fuzztones... certainly you have the idea by now... this is a set that should be in every household on the planet, provided the occupants actually want to have fun........

Well, we're up to Disc 8 of Volume 8 now, gotta love some Wylde Mammoths, Green Telescopes (highly underappreciated), Los Peyotes, and Mondo Topless (great moniker at the very least)... The Preachers mangle "Little Re Book", Sick Rose skewer "99th Floor", we get the Down N Outs, Smooth Filthy, and a great time is had by all........

We finally wrap up Volume 8 with Disc 9, more welcome stuff from the Brood, Miracle Workers,
Cynics, Fuzztones, Tell-Tale Hearts, the Thanes, the Pandoras.... obviously trying to fit in everything he wanted before wrapping up the series... closing it up is Surfin' Lungs "Munsters Theme"

OK, so that is Volume 8... there is one more disc, Volume 9.... WHY? it is not just one more disc of Volume 8 I will never know, deliberately confusing is all I can think of as certainly the Chesterfield Kings, Thanes, Fuzztones, and frankly pretty much everyone on the disc is making  repeat appearance... ahhhh well... this is a great set,  a wonderful "internet only" set that, as always, I consider a "labor of love" and compiled with compassion and the interest that only a true music LOVER can muster.

Fuzzface's blog is long gone, done't know if he got shut down or if he just tired of it.... but he did a great job with this set, I'll NEVER understand his numbering system, but there ya go......along with Katrakyla (tomorrow perhaps) one of the greatest ever internet compilers of modern-day retro garage rock..... I've got more for you. Lots more. Let's hear some opinions on this stuff. Please?

My friends, that is a lot of material, and a lot of GOOD material... Fuzzface has go to that great Blog-o-sphere in the sky, but this, his finest creation, will outlast all of us as a classic compilation series! THANK YOU FUZZFACE WHEREVER YOU ARE!

PS If you are getting as bored with "Scott Andridge" as I am, please do me a favor and tell him so... I thought he might be "fun", like tormenting a small child or something, but he is JUST SO STUPID there is no talking to him and the entertainment value is compromised. I mean, is there ANYONE other than him that does not understand that I LOVE the bands I profile on here, including the Seeds... OR anyone who can't grasp that about 95% of the Seeds charm was in their sloppy amateurishness? Seemed like easy concepts, but this guy simply DOES NOT SEEM TO GET IT. I know I have many friends on the blog,maybe one of you can explain these facts to him, and also advise him that there are LOTS of other blogs (it would seem he doesn't care much for this one) that he could frequent and enjoy... I simply  cannot seem to get the words through his skull.... one of my amigos out there, PLEASE try and explain it to him so we can concentrate on what matters, which to me is providing and sharing rare/obscure music, and to him, for some reason, seems to be finding out the dimensions of my does, indeed, take ALL kinds to make up a world!


  1. wow, bigman, thanks for these. missed them the first time around, so thanks for the effort in getting them back on the internets. will you be posting vols. 5-7 as well as these (so far i only see 1-4), or am i jumping the gun a bit? big thanks, big scott
