" Instead of corralling everything in and weeding out selections from all over the place, I've hopped across the Atlantic to feature Fuzzy Vox's first vinyl. Makes sense, right? But I wouldn't do that if this wasn't worth it.
I'll give you three reasons why you should listen to this Paris-based band's new EP:
1) Fuzzy Vox is an awesome band name.
2) They do an incredible cover of " Great Balls of Fire."
3) The EP is phenomenal. AND, for anyone who wondered, they do sing in English. Quite well, for that matter.
Fuzzy Vox is a souped-up version of the band that played your grandparents' high school prom. It's Jerry Lee Lewis after a dozen Red Bulls and the Isley Brothers on steroids. But they're not ruining your straight-laced, suit-and-tie rock and roll bands. They're giving them new life.
The EP is firmly planted in the early days of rock and roll, but it calls on influences beyond the late 50s and early 60s. Yes, you'll detect early Beatles in Fuzzy Vox, but you'll also get the insatiable energy of Iggy Pop and the Stooges. These guys aren't standing still on stage, trying to make sure their suits stay spiffy. They're jumping around on stage with youthful abandon, rolling up their sleeves and filling your garage with delicious rock and roll.
I've listened to Fuzzy Vox's EP several times, and it is nowhere near outstaying its welcome. Its frenetic excitement is so contagious that you can't help but wish you were in a room full of young people jumping around while Fuzzy Vox played. Alas, that's easier for those Parisians across the water. I'm still stuck on the other side of the Atlantic.
There's nothing overly technical or complex about this EP, but that's part of the charm. They aren't trying to outdo anyone, instead opting to take the best from early rock and roll and making it their own. And it works so, so well.
In the 50s, these guys would've been greasers. Slicked-back hair, leather jackets, the works. Fuzzy Vox's EP is a powerful, rollicking ride that puts a bit of punk into the golden era of rock and roll. That dash of attitude, thrown into a tumultuous blend of slick guitars, unstoppable drumming, and bouncy vocals, makes for a whole lot of fun.
