During a UK tour earlier in the year, Fuzz Club Records invited Seattle garage-rock outfit Night Beats to spend one of their days off at Lovebuzz Studios, an analogue recording studio in South London, to record a live session. The result is the first instalment in the new Fuzz Club Sessions series, which will also boast Holy Wave, Heaters, The Entrance Band and more.
Kicking things off is Night Beats with their raucous, psychedelic R&B anthems. The first cut from the session is streaming now, it’s a brilliantly raw and fuzzed-out live rendition of ‘Bad Love’ – originally taken from the Who Sold My Generation LP out on Heavenly Recordings.
Fuzz Club’s reasoning behind the live session series is to take some of the best names in psych and rock and roll, bring them to a studio and strip things down to their absolute fundamentals – just raw, unkempt rock and roll, recorded straight to tape in one take using totally analogue equipment. There isn’t a better band to kick-start the series than Night Beats,with their white-knuckle R&B and soulful psychedelic tendencies making for a truly insatiable performance.
