I heard this band originally on Mancow's Morning Madhouse, he played Lover Call, and I was hooked, not really a classification for them, accept, pretty raw and hard rocking musically, with a black dude singing, but not in the conventional form of singing! I love them, but know virtually no other fans? any of you guys fancy them?

I heard great things so I took some time to listen... and that time lasted about 2mins. I found these guys painfully boring. Almost like a poorer version of Hootie and The Blowfish, imo.

Geoff! I could have told you that they werent for you! but if you think they sound like hootie and the blowfish, it's cause they have a black singer, and thats the only reason!

Agree, no Hootie similarity at all.

 

I have 2 releases of there's and quite like them both, nothing earth shattering, but imho, some nice rock n roll!

I wish I did, as of today I have "We Sweat Blood" and "Sleep Is The Enemy". And again, I like both discs a lot, but the appeal might miss some of the blinder wearer's on the board...

Yeah guys, I should add they remind me of Hootie and the Blowfish... not that they sound like them specifically.

 

Maybe it is the black lead singer, maybe it's the ultra-safe plodding along songs... I don't know, it's just what I thought when I heard them. ;)

I never heard anything by bootie and the hoefish that remotely rocked! hey have you ever spelled your name Giuff to fuck with people? you know like Giuffria? but they are just hard rocking garage rock! with a totally crazy singer! don't start telling people they sound like Hootie, or i'll start making Michael Bolton, and Wham references to some of your bands!!!

:lol: Yeah, my opinion on this band is definitely not one to take any note of. As I said, it was made in haste... I just know for sure these guys were definitely not for me.

Cheers,

Giuff

Yea these boys rock! They get a lot of airplay here in their homeland! You guys have to hear the song Bounce. Lovercall may be my second fave Danko tune, but I love Bounce infinitely more. If it doesn't get you moving you're dead!

 

They are opening for Sebastian Bach and GNR in January so I'll get to see them live. I think the Phil Lynott comparison is a fair one. Definitely a very modern Lizzy vibe imho. Very cool! :headbanger:

Not too bad. Reminds me of a harder rocking Hootie. "Code Of The Road" and "Bounce" are pretty good rockers...Takes a little getting used to.

I love there shit, they are nuts to, they not only sat in on the whole 4 hrs of Mancows Morning Madhouse, they seemed to really like to do the Phone Scams! and the drummer almost had the guy in the 5 star hair saloon in the bottom of the building Mancow broadcasts out of, you know the one they prank call, and fuck with him about being queer(though he's not) the drummer had him on the line for almost 3 minutes, slowly working in very inteligent questions, but with each question, a little more fruity content was squeezed in, he was genius, Ive never heard Thomas get that lead on, during a prank call, he generally picks up the first minute that it's one of Mancows obnoxious calls, even the good callers dont get past the minute and a half mark, but Dankos Drummer I believe it was had thomas in the middle of discussing if a brazilian wax could possibly make him become aroused? and Thomas started saying "well I guess technically it could, but weve never known a gentelman to really find it arousing" and then he stopped, mid sentence, and said, "you know who becomes aroused, when that Erich fuck from the radio station upstairs gets his done, he enjoys the cucumber treatment while" Click!!! it was fucking hilarious, then Danko, I guess thats the black singer, would call houses and do his scream and if it was a woman answering, he would talk real normal and act like he was a specialist, doing a one time throught the suburban neighborhoods, showing stay at home moms the proper technique involved in doing the Lover Call! fucking classic, none of cows guests get into doing that shit very oftern, I wish I could find it to donwload, it was classic!

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
