Demo Review

Dirty Fuzz
Tell Ya Mama Demo

Article written by Mary B - Jan 28, 2007

I've got to tell you that I was slightly sceptical about this song when I looked at the front cover of it. The name 'Dirty Fuzz' does not do anything for me either. However on first listen it's pretty obvious that Dirty Fuzz have got themselves a jewel of a front lady in Elida Zulu, an ex-nurse. She has the kind of vocals that demand that you listen to her. She's loud and proud with the kind of control that some singers can only dream about. It's no surprise to read that Basement Jaxx asked her to front the vocals on one of their latest offerings. Tell ya mama is rock with a punch, threatening guitars and has a 'You will listen to me' attitude running through it. I think that the best is yet to come from this 4 piece London band. Unfortunately I only have one song to go on and this leaves me wanting to hear more. They've been compared to the Stooges, Zeppelin and the Uk's answer to The Bellrays (which does them a slight injustice I think - it's a lazy comparison and Elida, in particular, deserves better for her voice is so much stronger than Lisa Kekaula's vocals). Personally I can hear the Rolling Stones in their music and Sympathy for the Devil definitely makes a guest appearance on this track as Elida let's out a few 'Whoo hoos.' If you're a fan of old style rock with a modern twist this is just what the doctor ordered.
