Black Angels/ Sonic Jesus
Split single No 5 Fuzz Club Records 10”

Article written by Ged M - Feb 14, 2015

Fans of distorted, fuzzy, droney hallucinatory pop are well served by Fuzz Club’s latest release. One side is the wonderful Black Angels’ ‘Molly Makes My Generation (Parts 1 & 2)’, which has the band's usual echoes of the Elevators, the Velvet Underground and the Cure, but this time there’s a darker, more ominous and unruly touch to the song. The first part is shimmering, echoey and full of reverb, until there’s a touch of sensory deprivation when everything drops out and only drums and a synth wave remain. Then everything bursts into hypercolour, fast and fuzzy till your heart starts skipping beats as you forget to breath. ‘Last Reprise’ is by Italian band Sonic Jesus, 20 seconds short of 8 minutes of slow-grinding Velvet Underground-ish drone-rock. There’s a forest of fuzz through which you occasionally glimpse an elegiac riff. Play loud and through headphones, and then watch your brains melt out of your nose.
