About The Fuzztones

One of the first and most popular of the garage rock revival bands of the 1980s, the Fuzztones made music that sounded like it came from a time machine, brought back from a moment in the mid-'60s when guitars either buzzed or jangled, Farfisa organs cried out in sympathy, and wailing vocalists were wrapped in paisley shirts and Nehru jackets. Led by singer and guitarist Rudi Protrudi, the Fuzztones were sticklers for sonic authenticity, playing rare period-appropriate covers and like-minded original compositions using vintage gear, and they launched a musical movement that hundreds of bands would follow. The 2009 compilation Lysergic Legacy is a fine, career-spanning introduction to their catalog, while the 2022 EP Encore and a collaborative single with Hollywood legend Ann-Margret covering Born to be Wild issued that same year confirmed the band were still on point after more than 40 years.
