While we all drive around pleased that there’s finally another catchy Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies hit, and one suspiciously close to hard rock at that, along comes an equally swingin’ piece of high decibel clobber, Supafuzz, pounding through that Wheelies, Four Horsemen, Raging Slab four-wheel terrain with a mod dose of Sugar Ray, Big Sugar, and Sugar. Pity the unfortunate band moniker (too many Supers around, and too genre unspecific: it will be lost in a sea of confusion), but clammer bammer this record! Much of the credit goes to enigmatic vocalist David Angstrom, who cut his teeth with under-rated alt.swampers Black Cat Bone. Angstrom is also the band’s unbelievably boiled-over guitarist, perhaps from necessity, given the sky-highly rhythmic blast of bass and drums propelling the steam of this band. Crazy crazy energy here, sorta like lost saviors Collision slapped modern by Clutch. Find this record.
