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.....
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.
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.
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,
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?

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 genitalia.......it does, indeed, take ALL kinds to make up a world!
