It's another lively, high-powered song, driven by the unstoppable power of the Hammond organ. There's no let-up in the incredible pace of this album with "Country Boy", a rammin' slammin' rocker with all the power of a hydraulic ram, so stand well clear because this is music with a ballsy take-no-prisoners attitude.
There's no let-up either for the timeless "In Our Time", a window-rattling, wild guitar and keyboard jamboree. The album closes with the short playful piece "A Word from Big D", in which we get to hear the quack of the Fuzzy Duck! This powerful album is as solid as a proverbial rock with an unrelenting pace from beginning to end.
It's an album with timeless appeal, featuring a glorious combination of the powerful Hammond organ sound and psychedelic fuzzy guitar riffs. The "Fuzzy Duck" album is not particularly proggy - it's just a good old-fashioned slice of Classic British Rock.
Upon first listen this album doesn't stand out remarkably amongst the other progressive leaning heavy rock of the early 70s but it does present some instantly catchy groovy riffs that beckon repeated listens. I personally got hooked upon first listen. I have heard of this album for a long time but the album cover kinda turned me off.
It actually reminds me of a cartoon called "The Hair Bear Bunch" from the same era. Not exactly the image that conjures up some seriously delicious hard rockin' prog for me, however this album is very consistent from beginning to end and the four bonus tracks that are included on the later remastered versions are not so bad in their own right.
The thing that makes this an excellent album for me is the outstanding tight musicianship on board. Although i wouldn't consider this the most original album of the day, it is just so pleasant to listen to. The band is rhythmically tight and heavily groovy and filled with energetic time sigs that are drenched in Hammand organ.
Whereas many a band of this type sound good musically, it is the vocalist that usually keeps it from being totally pleasurable. No such problem for me here.
FUZZY DUCK has all the magical ingredients to take the already developed organ laden heavy rock of the early 70s and makes it all sound perfectly executed.
Catchy enough to garner instant satisfaction but proggy enough to keep the more engaged listener happy as well. This album is very good from the strong heavy prog opener "Time Will Be Your Doctor" to the excellent closer "A Word From Big D" that manages to create duck quackery with musical instruments! Don't let the silly album cover put you off with this one. This is some infectious early 70s progressive proto-metal going on here.
Quack on heavy proggers! Review by Tarcisio Moura Prog Reviewer. Track Listing. Past, Present and Future. Demon Fuzz. Disillusioned Man. Another Country. Hymn to Mother Earth. Mercy Variation No. I Put a Spell on You. Message to Mankind. Fuzz Oriental Blues. As Fuzz, this trio is far less distinctive, but blessed again though with a 'Mongoloid' quality.
Hammering their way into merry oblivion, Fuzz somehow manage to add style to their Neanderthal ruckus. Grungy and bluesy, Fuzz crawls through the snotty swamps of maverick psychedelic garage punk. They probably lost a few hairs in the process. Beating the drums as if it's the end of the world, Ty Segall, alas, however, doesn't succeed in singing with equal rigour and vigour.
There is, however, still lots of exhilirating slide guitar mayhem. Consider it to be the blueprint, or the basement tape recording. Most of the tracks on 'Fuzz' seem demos for future Ty Segall garage punkpop tracks.
A kind of a stew that was taken off the fire prematurely, the Fuzz debut LP smells like teen spirit, and tastes like spirits. Related Bands edit. About 45 minutes of best low-tuned psychedelic-doom. Combined with weird and evil lyrics this record works well for me. The credits for the cover go to the Wizard Of Meth. Facebook — Website — Spotify. I was a bit overtaken by this record.
A reason could be I was not that happy with Berlin, the record before, so this killer album stroke me down even more. With their debut they were one of the first stoner-rock-bands I ever knew and they were also the very first gig I attended they played support for Electric Wizard back then. Listening to Rough Times makes you think twice, whether you live in or the 70s. It is dreamy, hypnotic, groovy and experimental. Facebook — Spotify. I did never expect that.
But I thought it would be another real doom-album. At first I was a bit shocked but I got really into it after the first few spins. Things change and bands develop, too. We will find out.
I was about six years old when I first came in contact with them. Or in general in contact with good, real music at all.Jan 05, · Facebook – Bandcamp – Spotify then I had a dream that The Black Angels released another album in , I listened to it, favored it and put it on the list. Very confused I awoke from the dream. And I looked up whether the Black Angels released another album in (their last one came out in ) – they did, called Death Song.I listened to it, favored it and now I put it on the list.
