Lexington, Kentucky’s Supafuzz, put out two monster albums of seriously on fire funk/punk/metal, Supafuzz “ST,” (1998) & “All About Rock” (2000). Before that, anchor & guitarist Dave Angstrom put out the excellent “Truth,” by his former band, Black Cat Bone. So one would expect Dave’s new project Supafuzz to sound somewhat like Black Cat Bone, & to an extent Supafuzz does, but where Black Cat Bone was steeped in heavy southern rock metal with flourishes of funk, Supafuzz was faster, funkier, & had an extra added element of punk. Supafuzz “ST” could best be described as the Smashing Pumpkins (Gish era) meets Pat Travers on a good night! Supafuzz “ST” just boils & brims over with explosive three piece power trio command on high speed. It is one of my favorite albums from the 90’s, & is obscure as a orange tree in a Iowa cornfield, & you know how obscure that is? Right?
Not a wasted cut on this masterful masterpiece. Dave Angstrom just smokes through this album with a vigor, verve & swagger, drawing in the listener for his roller coaster guitar antics, aimed at both ears right into your brain, & out your hands & feet, in a wave of punk/funk/metal motion!
“ST” definitely gets my vote as one of the greatest rarities I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to.
