REVIEW: The Fuzz’s “Best Kept Secret”

 photo TheFuzz_cover_zpsctvu7l28.jpg The Fuzz have released a new album on Green Monkey Records called Best Kept Secret and if you are someone who loves their rock in a dingy club or basement with a hint of stink and gank, you’ve come to the right place. It reminds me of the kind of music I’d hear from a group of people who have a lot of experience and know what they’re doing, singing about and playing, and that’s exactly what this is. This is experienced music, and some of this reminds me of early Mudhoney or even Green River, as if Mark Arm decided to show up and say “hey, I want to jam with you guys.” I’m sure fans of the Seattle music will say “this should remind you of a lot of other people than that” and there’s nothing wrong with an aggressive song like this with lyrics that refer to Kareem Abdul Jabbar, as they do in the nice basketball anthem “Wilt”. Nonetheless, for those who remember and know what Seattle rock sounds like, perhaps this is why this is called Best Kept Secret, for this is something you’re not going to hear on the radio with its own dedicated hour during lunch, This is true grit from the 206.
