Dig The Fuzz Records recently came to the Blog's attention and it certainly seems to be well worth delving into further. Here's some information from the label. "With a great sense of pride, we will shortly be presenting a prestigious selection of exuberant sounds from the tasteful talents that have bent our ears in recent times. The fuzz never really fizzled out and with vigorous endeavour and a salivating appetite for discovering new sounds, once more we strive to bring forth obscure and precious sounds closer to your ears. Our intrepid voyage into the musical abyss takes hold, searching for intensely explosive, enigmatic, exotic and exciting sounds in the subterranean styles of Freakbeat, Psychedelia, Garage, Punk, Stoner, Acid Rock, Dub, Electronica, Folk and whatever else disturbs the senses. Dig The Fuzz embraces every colour, creed and sexual direction from Uganda to Glasgow to Gogogogo n Madagascar. If we can find that illustrious ingredient to bends the senses, we will do our utmost to grant it a place on a round piece of plastic pressed with love...!"

Here's a message from the label along with little bit of small-print stuff. "Your Help, Your Support, Your Social involvement and input, is much appreciated, valuable, very welcome and also very important to the development of this club and unsung underground new music and a kick in the cogs of the overly manufactured music machine.

Membership is a one time fee only & stands valid as long as the club continues running (thanks to your good selves).
