Seattle garage-rock outfit Night Beats have had an extremely busy year that’s seen their bluesy, psychedelic rock and roll lead them to acquire a cult-like status at an unfathomable pace. During a UK tour in support of their new LP ‘Who Sold My Generation’ we invited the band to spend one of their days off at Lovebuzz Studios, an analogue recording studio in Bermondsey,South London, to record a live session.
The result is the first instalment in the new Fuzz Club Sessions series, each to be released on 12” vinyl with a series of videos from the day.
Our reasoning behind the series was to take some of the best names in psych and rock and roll, bring them to a studio and strip things down to their absolute fundamentals - just raw, unkempt rock and roll, recorded straight to tape in one take using totally analogue equipment. There isn’t a better band to kick-start the series than Night Beats, with their white-knuckle R&B and soulful psychedelic tendencies making for a truly insatiable performance.
Night Beats' brilliant session boasts five tracks from their most recent LP Who Sold My Generation, one from 2013's Sonic Boom and a raw, fuzzed-out rendition of Bo Diddley's classic 'Mama, Keep Your Big Mouth Shut'.
