Nashville Goes Fuzz
Fuzz Guitar In The Country Music Experience (1956-1970)

From the fiends who brought you Hillbillies In Hell...

Birthed accidently at Bradley's Owen's Nashville studio in July 1960 on a Marty Robbins session, the Fuzztone was soon appropriated by the hipster punks of Garage Rock and Psychedelia across countless iconic underground and overground recordings like The Electric Prunes' 1966 'I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night' and The Stooges 1969 'I Wanna Be Your Dog.'

Less known, however, was that Country Music also embraced the Fuzztone across the mid-1960s and produced Fuzzed-up Bawdy Trucker ballads like The Willis Brothers' raucous 'Soft Shoulders, Dangerous Curves', buzzing odes to Psychic Vengeance such as Johnny Darrell's sweet 'Mental Revenge' and surreal Lovesick Screamers like Billy Gray's 'Rotten Love.'

The Original Hayseed Fuzztone Freak Out is here.

Get ready. Waylon Jennings makes fingers bleed on his blisteringly poignant poverty parable 'Six Strings Away', Ferlin Husky breaks the bridge on his smooth 'I'll Sail My Ship Alone' and the man who invented it all, Grady Martin, delivers in spades 'The Fuzz.'

Years in the making from Music City U.S.A, come 18 screeching slices of serious Nashville cowpunk mayhem and nervous backwoods niche novelty.
