Fuzztones - Preaching To The Perverted (CD)
Release Date: 07/12/11
30 years on and still trippin'! Brand new lysergic madness from the Fuzztones!
Often imitated - by the likes of The Cult's Ian Astbury, Soft Cell's Marc Almond and punk legends The Ramones - but never duplicated, The Fuzztones began in 1980 in the bowels of NYC's Lower East Side, sporting a '60s Garage Punk look and sound, the latter courtesy of their vintage gear including a Fuzzbox distortion pedal used to achieve a distinctively retro-psychedelic vibe. In 1985, the band released its debut full-length, Lysergic Emanations, which quickly became a cult sensation, thanks in part to copious praise from Astbury. After a brief stint at Beggar's Banquet, the band reclaimed their indie status and launched numerous, hugely successful European tours as well as new recordings throughout the '90s & '00s. Now celebrating their 30-year anniversary, the band returns with a brand new set of compositions, Preaching To The Perverted, and ready to ring in the next decade with all the pomp and circumstance these veteran rockers deserve!
