Fuzzhead

Less a genuine band when compared to a loose collective of experimental improvisers and sonic explorers, Kent, OH-based Fuzzhead does not have any permanent members, conserve leader/philosopher Costs Weita. Because the middle-’80s, Weita provides led an ever-shifting lineup (the sleeve image of one record includes a group image of literally a large number of people) via an sometimes bizarre mélange of Krautrock-style hypnotic rhythms, tuneful psych-folk, and blistering sound, like some kind of mix between Can, Glenn Branca, and Pearls Before Swine. Although mainly an improvisatory live take action, Fuzzhead released many albums, including 1988’s Fuzzhead Is definitely Like (with an absolutely warped reworking of Jonathan Richman’s currently unusual “Pablo Picasso”), 1991’s Technicolor Spirit, 1993’s WHAT’S HAPPENING?, 1995’s Un Saturn, as well as the excellently entitled I Saw the very best Thoughts of My Era Rock. Pursuing that 1996 discharge, Fuzzhead retreated with their live-performances-only root base and Weita started releasing single albums (offering some associates of Fuzzhead’s ensemble), including 1997’s Product D and 2000’s Subsidized Period.
