The Bizarre and Wonderful "Fuzzface" set

A classic internet-only set from the once (and always) great "Fuzzface" blog......the last couple of
posts with all that great modern day garage-rock and retro shit got me thinking of this set. VERY strangely numbered, Volumes 1-6 are single disc, Volume 7 is 2 Discs, Volume 8 is NINE (!) discs, and Volume 9 is yet another single disc. WHY? Not a fucking clue, but this is a great set too, maybe not quite as good as "Fathers and Sons" due to that set's wonderful progrmming and construction, but these discs contain some unbeleiveably great and obscure music. To the best of my knowledge, it is no longer avaialable anywhere except from those of us who grabbed it at the time, this is a second chance for some, so PLEASE don't miss it!

OK, I guess I'll do Volumes 1-7 today and Volumes 8-9 tomorrow......that's  eight discs total for today, guys, this really IS a bit work,  doing this much bulk at a time, (most blogs, I'm sure you are aware, give you but a disc a day, if that.....) I enjoy doing this, but please, TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF THESE SETS, especially a terrific and hard to locate set such as this!

So, Volume 1 "Punk Rock".....I get the idea that these were created by some cool guy maybe living in his parent's basement, sort of making mix-tapes (CD's) for his own partying use....."Punk Rock" couldn't be more general, but that is indeed what we're getting here!....a somewhat rare Clash track ("Sex Man Roar"), the Ramones
"Spiderman" (WOULD BE rare if I didn't just give it to ya on the "Saturday Morning Cartoons" disc last week or so!).... how's about a duet betwixt Dee Dee Ramone and Lux Interior ("Bad Horoscope")? Jayne/Wayne County & the Electric Chairs rarely turn up on these comps, points for that......the wonderful cover of "Little Honda" by the criminally overlooked Demonics. The great "Do the Boob" by the Real Kids......"School Days", one of the Runaway's best...and also stuff from Crazyhead, The Stukas, Shampoo......off to a fantastic start, this set!

Volume 2 is entitled "Garage Rock Internacional"
and lives up to its name as well....a near-perfect collection of retro-60's bands, Chesterfield Kings, Pandoras, Fleshtones, Fuzztones, the great Miracle Workers, even a track from Sky Saxon ("Barbie Doll Look")......and that's about the half of it. Volume 3 ("Garage Rock Nacional 1980-2003") is a lot of great stuff less familiar to those of us in the US (I have no idea where Fuzzface originated from), "Insanity" by the Pissmakers, Doctor Explosion's take on "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White"), "Drinkin' Blood" by Screamin Pijas, unknown stuff (to us Yanks at least) from the Rock-A-Hulas, Sex Museum, Los Macana......and again, that's about the half of it.

Volume 4 is "Garage Rock Internacional II", more greats such as "Slave Girl" from the Lime Spiders, "In Her Life" by the phenominal Yard Trauma, The Tell Tale Hearts, The Stomachmouths, Cavemanish Boys.......fantastic shit here guys, do not miss it. Volume 5 "Revival Garage Internaciol 2" (?), Lordy me, the utter greatness just keeps coming. The great Swingin Neckbreakers ("Help Wanted"), The Brood (another of my personal faves), Pandoras, Fuzztones, The Maggots.....no need to just make a list, each of these discs is about as close to
OUT AND OUT PERFECTION as one could possibly get.

Volume 6? "Punk Nacional"....lotsa foreign language (to ME) stuff, and you know I love non-English rock, well, just off the cuff, how about some from Familia Real, KGB, Commando 9mm, Kangrena.....don't think I'd ever heard a single track on this disc prior to hearing it, and it is one of my favorite discs in this wonderful set.

OK, now Volume 7 is TWO discs, ("Revival
Garage Nacional 1" and "Revival Garage Nacional 2") a bunch of tracks on the second disc are referred to ONLY AS "Bonus Track", no titles OR Artists given, OK by me, cause the rest of the disc is filled out with Nikki & the Corvettes (LOVE YA NIKKI!), Thee Headcoatees, Suzy Quatro (!), the Pandoras, Teen Machine and more. The other Volume 7 disc is loaded with lots of obscure shit, Los Buges, The Smutmen, Undershakers, RC Druids.....I could go on and on, and I have, but this set is as goddamn good in it's own way as the "Fathers and Sons" sets are.
DON'T miss your chance to get them, they are fantastic and you'll be sorry if you miss them. Be back tomorrow with the rest of em and you're going to LOVE those as well.......PLEASE comment and let me know your thoughts on these recent "giant" comps, are they worth all the work? I'd like to think/hope so, I hope SOMEONE out there loves them as much as do I!
