A FUZZ-GUITAR CASCADIAN CACHE!
• UNEARTHED REELS FROM SALEM OREGON’S GARLAND RECORDS!
• A RAUCOUS MIX OF ORIGINALS, COVERS, COVETED RARITIES AND UNISSUED MONSTERS!
The drive’s cranked all the way up and the needle’s fully in the red for this set of uptempo garage-punk stompers from Salem’s enigmatic Garland Records. Packed with killer, crunchy bass, pummeling drums, in-your-face vocals, and (of course) mountains of fuzz-guitar! Loaded primarily with originals, plus distorted deviations of select known numbers, all ranging from impossibly rare to previously unreleased!
With Sundazed Music’s acquisition of the Garland Records catalog, you’re in for a coastal flood of great garage rock, pysch, soul, and even some country. But it all starts here with Pacific Northwest Fuzz Box, named after the commonly used distortion pedals that (at least according to our ears) can be heard reverberating through your speaker cones on every track.
One thing that makes this collection extra unique is the abundance of original material. Stellar cuts like “It’ll Come Easy,” “Hip Girl,” and “Transparent Soul” carry the same level of songsmanship you’ll get from the blistering covers of “Black Is Black” (Los Bravos), “Suzie Q” (CCR), “Hit The Road Jack” (Ray Charles) and more! Something fuzzy was happening in the Pacific Northwest and BeatRocket is stoked to be the ones to tell you all about it.
