From Russia With Fuzz...

No Fuzz - No Fun Intended (2011)



I think this may actually be the first female front band we've featured on here... I do apologise to all you ladies out there, I assure you it wasn't a conscious effort.

Right then. No Fuzz, they're from Russia, they've got a good punky undertone and they don't really look much like they sound. If that makes sense? But seriously, give the album a listen and you kind of get the mental image that they're all gonna be a big grungy looking, possibly a couple of punks, tattoos, ripped jeans and safety pins, you know what I'm getting at right? Well, think completely the opposite and you'd be damn sight closer. Not that thats a issue or a problem, because at the end of the day this album on its own merits alone is a little corker - catchy tunes that kind of reminisce (in parts) of an early Black Keys and a great female vocal front that really echoes of Sahara Hotnights. Not the usual thing we have on here I grant you but I will openly admit that I'm occasionally drawn to some things that sway more to the indie side of genres, and this is one of those times.
If you in anyway dug the album by Winnebago Deal that I put up some time back then you should seriously check this album out!
