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.
