Fuzz Clubs split series has become essential buying recently, with number five in the series featuring Texas Psych godfathers The Black Angels and Italian Psych rockers Sonic Jesus and for number six they’ve really surpassed themselves, inviting two of the greatest noise rock bands on the planet – New York City’s A Place to Bury Strangers, and former Creation wall of sound favourites The Telescopes to go head to head. It’s out on Wednesday the 15th of April on 1000 copies10inch vinyl (200 of which orange vinyl)
From arguably New York City’s loudest band comes the unreleased single Down the Stairs, and it lives up to its billing, this primal shoegaze soaked in feedback and this brutal simplicity is accompanied by guitar screams and squeals as eventually the vocal enters, dark – almost whispered and often obscured by the intensity of whats going on over the top, but it somehow adds a depth to things.
On the flip side, The Telescopes take on The Stooges I wanna be your dog – kicking it through this midlands shroud of echo and clouds of feedback, before dragging it over the angsty guitars on show to rival its illustrious creators. Its, in a word, fantastic.
All hail Fuzz Club Records.
