Read more for the review....
It has been over a week since the Big Neck Fest 2014 in Buffalo, NY and I think it is time to review. Before we dive into Day 1 I want to extend my thanks out to Malik Von Saint who set all of this up. Without him, Buffalo would have been without this festival for another few years. He organized the nights, took care of the door, governed the money, and got those bands rolling on time (no small feat). So again THANKS MALIK!
Let’s start with Day 1, Thursday June 12...
Day 2 Lineup
Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Reviews from 5 zines on Blues Zed!
Here is just one from Ripple Effect:
Fatal Figures - Blue Zed b/w Alright
Released earlier this year on Big Neck Records, the Fatal Figures are made up of Aaron, Tracy, and Scott from the Blowtops. After a decade of plowing one gushy vein of garage rock horror show after another with the Blowtops, the remaining members decided to move on and explore new territory. While that sounds like something dramatic, in reality the Fatal Figures are doing what they've always done best. This is pure garage punk-death rock n roll. We got amped up, creeped-out Cramps here, some serious Pussy Galore and a whole lotta fun.
"Blue Zed" is the highlight here with Aaron Adduci being a hypnotizing front man. I don't know what this cat takes before a show, but lock it up, you don't want that getting loose in public. His vocals are a sputtered death moan of Boris Karloff meets The Sonics hysteria. The bottom end of this song is purely subsonic. An intense, mesmerizing listen. "Alright" is a Pussy Galore cover and really holds place until these cats dawn the creepshow punk and blast out their next original. Released on blood red vinyl, of course.
Catching up with Big Neck LP box set, Vol 1 is now available! 5 LPs and a 10" for only $25! Go to the special page in the online store and buy.
