Sean Bonniwell headed the Music Machine, one of the most inspirational "punk" outfits from the 60's. This pairing makes for an interesting recording of "People In Me," which represents a fine example of the work Bonniwell did to stretch the limits of pop music way back when. They had the bad luck to follow The Shadows of Knight, who blew many fans right out the door. And by the time The 'Tones took the stage, there weren't nearly as many crazed fans as there had been at one of the saner hours of the night, but the boys delivered a damn good set.
The version of "She's Wicked" found on here is a pretty good representation of their set that evening with Rudi in top form. Comienza con "face of time", impressionante. El farfisa y las Phantom Guitars trabajan a destajo. En la cara B, "My brother the man".
Donde hay momentos en los que revientan el fuzz, es otra grandisima version a cargo de los 'Tones! Este disco es una edicion limitada y numerada a mano de unidades. Volume 3 is certainly no exception. Indeed this is an eardrum-pounding plethora of audial decadence at its wildest and most ferocious!
RAFR has once again restored my brew-slathered faith in rock'n'roll with this seminal collection of balls-out tune-crashers, and I aggressively implore you to drop everything right fuckin' now and buy this disc quick! The Fuzztones contribute an alternate version of "A Wristwatch Band. Again, never reviewed. Along with gnarly acts like the Chesterfield Kings and the Lyres, the Fuzztones spearheaded the ferocious sixties Garage Rock revival of the early eighties, a deed that eternally earns them a place in the hearts and minds of anyone who gets off on this almighty fine music that never seems to date and is championed year after year by kids of all shapes and sizes.
There's no question the Fuzztones sound better than ever. Longtime fans of the band will cheer their return, while those who are just discovering their genius will be floored to the core and be anxious to hear their past work. Viva the Fuzztones! As usual, the band is in tip-top condition, playing and singing with the kind of burning passion that's sadly absent from rock and roll these days.
The sound of a bewitching organ has always been instrumental in the music of the Fuzztones, so it's no surprise both "Idol Chatter" and "A Wristwatch Band" are helmed by such ear-pleasing notes. The latter song was originally done by an obscure sixties band called the Boss Tweeds , who were obviously smitten with acts like the Doors and the Strawberry Alarm Clock. The Fuzztones remain loyal to the initial version of "A Wristwatch Band," which floats to a spooky tenor and contains some real freaky lyrics you're bound to a lot of fun with.
This is a very mesmerizing number and the Fuzztones are the ideal candidates to cover it. Charted of a mighty mean hook and groovy psychedelic trimmings, "Idol Chatter" is just as fantastic, but then again, you certainly wouldn't expect anything less from the Fuzztones.
In view of this numbers, you can bet your skull and bones the band's upcoming album will be one heck of a dark-eyed beauty! Anyways, there is a very good and important reason to get that 45, especially if you collect Fuzztones stuff or generally garage punk records: It's vinyl! Unfortunately, until this time I am writing these words, no news about vinyl release for the 'Salt For Zombies' have reached my ears So,here's a chance to get these tunes on old mighty vinyl!
It's still alive! En la cara A, "Hallucination Generation" creando un gran ambiente tetrico y ayuado nada menos que por James Lowe de los Electric Prunes.

We're told that organisers will put on a Sydney date only if Melbourne doesn't sell - which seems highly unlikely - and there's no thought to playing anywhere else.
Written by Robert Brokenmouth on 18 November For overseas readers: Cold Chisel created a bubbling, intense hard-rock scene in ythe s and greatly influenced the Australian music industry. To be precise, quite often at the Largs Pier Hotel. Cold Chisel had a rough-as-guts image, and played rock akin to punk before punk, used feedback where it was effective, and were huge all around the country in the '70s and '80s. Written by The Barman on 17 November Timelessly inventive in the same vein as the best of Henry Cow or Slapp Happy for those of a certain vintage , and the Art Bears or Dagmar Krause for what were then more contemporary touchstones, Thinking Plague exist in that glorious chasm in which melody and dance can be reduced to instinct, to allow other notions to rise up in their place.
Where Thinking Plague prosper, however, is in those places where they feel the most eclectic; there is a shattered, scattered beauty here that was still being pursued a decade later by the likes of Life Without Buildings, and almost a decade earlier by Ki Di Me and a dubless Slits, too. Which, really, is what the avant-garde was all about in the first place, right? In fact, there are moments when every plaudit draped across Dreams should be doubled with intensity and then redeployed here.
How dully unimaginative it would be to describe this as a prog album… in terms of artwork and guest musicians, heritage and history, it snags that title with its eyes closed. But it is essentially an album of songs; great songs, meaningful songs, listenable songs.
No forty minute keyboard solos to let play while you go out for lunch, no topographic hogweeds to circumnavigate slowly while you bathe your cosmic underpants in the pools of existentialism. Just music, beautiful, moody, well-arranged, exquisitely produced, music. There is a loose concept. Largely balladic, often melancholy, always thoughtful and sometimes even sweet, Stupid Things that Mean the World is a compulsive listen, a late night delight that sounds good in the morning as well.
Which, in this day and age, is actually quite a progressive idea. All hail the mighty Fuzztones. Across six CDs, a four song EP and a chunky booklet that tells their whole story, Psychorama is the first, last and only document you will ever require of this most aptly named of New York psych savages.

AR SPA.Horrible sound quality never came through this clearly, for while The Fuzztones' first album was cheaply recorded live on its Midwest tour, few other records of the '80s are imbued with this much '60s garage-slop punk fervor. The audience screams throughout, while the Fuzztones' Rudi Protrudi launches into seven songs with a recklessness not heard since The Sonics or The Standells.
