The Fuzztones: Police To Meet You

Richard North, ZigZag, August 1985

THE FUZZTONES are the type of band who inspire thoughts like, 'Rootless beat, ruthless rhythms, voxed-up twang at maximum volume, magnified beyond belief. Bourbon, drugs, cigarettes, bad air, rotten food. Just fuel, just fuel. Refocussing on something primal, stripped to the bone. Bad dreams, drunken dreams but...always the skinny hope of redemption. The sound of something falling apart quicker than we can put it together again.'
