Hell yeah! Bring the magic.
LOL! What is that, the African Iggy Pop?!?!?? lovely FuzzToanz...
Accidentally heard a good portion of Axis: Bold as Love yesterday... wow, his Fuzz tone is quite sculpted... is that really 'dimed' and it's just his guitar controls?? I'd have trouble believing that... for every song?? There's way too much variation... (unless it's StudioEQ)
Anyway, this was a 'New' LP,... mm mm... it really had a niiice sound to it.
'Spanish Castle Magic': this sounds like what I've come to understand as the typical raunchy FuzzFace sound (lol, did I get that right?, I knooow I heard some Octavio on the LP somewhere, can't remember which song). This is NOT what I meant by sculpted,... just raw FuzzStortion.
'Little Miss Lover': both of these songs I played in our band when I was 14... band name: LSD...LOLOL!!!! When I heard the wah solo I literally recalled playing that very lick at some basement party!
(lol, THAT's what it was... I was getting Sp.CastleMagic and CsstlesMade of Sand confused!!!)
Jeff Beck. Jimmy Page. Hendrix. Zappa. Torn. Prince (I know, I know probably rarely if ever used a fuzz-proper, but what can you do?). Robert Fripp. John McLaughlin. Robby Krieger. Pete Cosey. There's like a million more but I always forget em all.
Cool! A couple more names I've never heard. Gotta put in some listening work this weekend.
So cool! I know it's about fuzz but those drummers get me so hyped! ( I play drums, too...just sayin)
Have you heard the Zamrocks comps?
Hahaha... I was in a band called Krylls ( slang for crack) we were not what I wanted to do but it was my brother so I played bass.
don't know what that is...
I did recently hear that original JBs 'demo' (with Bootsy) that sounded like a great rhythm track to wank off 20 minutes of Hendrix to!
Frank Zappa, Tim Sult, Dean Ween, Larry Lalonde, St. Vincent.
Dean Ween!!!! Yup yup.
Just a compilation of Zambian psych rock. Sounds very much in the same wheel house of what you posted.
Sounds like JB/The Meters on the rhythm section but garage rock on the front
Chank FTW - awesome
I'll get some old/classic list together but...
Some current and Newerish last 10 years bands.
Some are fuzzy and some are fuzzy feelin'
High on fire

Uncle acid and the deadbeats
Tropical **** Storm
Rival Sons (mostly older).
Psychedelic porn crumpets
My music influences are different from my fuzz influences. I love any good use of fuzz in any kind of music. All the classics, such as Spirit in the Sky, and at least a hundred more. Right now the posters in this thread are as big as anything for me, lol. I like it all. People like Dan Auerbach are good for teaching me an example of somebody who makes fuzz work practically, for his entire catalog.
I do have giant musical influences (e.g., Hackett) who used fuzz but don't necessarily see them as gear role models (though Hackett used great fuzzes, I don't think it matters, as it could have been other stuff as it is for him today).
Basically, it's all great stuff, so whatever you do can work. Everyone who posts here that I get around to hearing is an influence! Fripp made my ears perk up musically, but I feel no need to use his gear. Does he even care about Buzzarounds? He could play total crap and it would sound frippin brilliant.
David Torn is a world class musician no matter what he plays, fuzz or no, and the many boxes he likes are great for him, sounding wonderful; but you never know what is going to hit you in the moment. Could be something nobody else likes, lol.
Any good fuzz can do it. Check out random clips from this thread. There are countless examples of useful tones. The main ingredient is just liking them, which means you will be motivated to plug the things in!

I think my Fuzz Factory is misbehaving. Can you folks confirm?
If you set yours to:
Vol 9 o’clock (unity)
Gate 7 o’clock (off)
Comp 7 o’clock (off)
Drive 12 o’clock
Stab 5 o’clock (all the way up)
How much racket comes through your amp when not playing? Mine gives off a ton of crackles and pops, which I don’t remember from other Fuzz Factories I’ve owned.
Rumor has it Jimi tweaked input and mids, not dissimilar to what Mike Fuller did to his '69 fuzzface. I would think the biases were tweaked.
As far as in the studio anything is possible. But you want the live impressions to work also. Live you want to just get it in the neighborhood, as you know from playing so long.
Great new fuzz music everybody! Ngozi is a blast. Can't wait to listen to it in my car.
I have nothing to add but would just like to bump David Torn, for fuzz that I really like to listen to.
And St. Vincent because interesting and fun
And this was my first love for fuzzy guitar, when I was 10
