RECORD REVIEW: THE FUZZTONES – Monster A-GoGo
Easy Action Records
Reviewed by Shane Pinnegar
7 ½ /10
Originally recorded in 1992, the fourth album by The Fuzztones gets the full Easy Action vinyl (Halloween pumpkin orange, no less) reissue treatment here, and it’s a fun blast from the past with the five-piece cobbling together a monster mash of covers and originals.
Kicking off with a couple of Screaming Lord Sutch numbers in Jack The Ripper and All Black And Hairy, the scene is set: this Halloween release is all about the spooky and scary. What follows is a screamfest – their Charlotte’s Remains and I’m The Wolfman to sit comfortably next to Bloodrock’s D.O.A., The Witch from The Sonics, Rory Erickson’s Night Of The Vampire and more.
Amongst all the graveyards and ghouls, vampires and violence, is the trademark Fuzztones sub-Cramps good time schlock n’ roll, making this more Scooby Doo than Hammer Horror – but just as fun.
