Preaching to the Perverted = LP = (LP)
It's probably not the wisest decision, commercially, for a band that's been relevant for over 30 years, to stray from the tried-and-true form that has helped them maintain their fanbase.
Yet that is just what The Fuzztones have done with their newest release, Preaching To The Perverted, The Fuzztones are globally recognized as the progenitors of the Garage Rock movement, and could easily continue retreading the same ground for many years to come, but they continually choose to push the envelope. Their last album, Horny As Hell, for instance, introduced a prominent horn section, black female background vocals and a hammond organ, adding a deep Soul element to their patented Garage-Grunge. While Preaching To The Perverted continues to explore the realm of Garage Psych - and adventurously engulfs every sub genre within (Psychedelic Soul, Garage Blues, Folk Rock, Psychedelic Lounge, et al), it dares to go beyond musical proficiency and experimentation.
This album contains a message - a wake-up call to the "perverted." One look at the cryptic cover art and it's immediately obvious that it's not sex that the 'Tones are referring to. Lyrically, the songs (all original compositions) address many political and social issues with music that drives the message home with the urgency required. Yet while Preaching To The Perverted is, by far, The Fuzztones most mature offering, it still maintains reverence to the Garage sound the band helped to re-introduce in the 80's. Possibly the most important album the genre has ever produced.
