Available on double 180 gramÂ White vinyl. The ethos of London-based indie label Fuzz Club is a desire to uncover and celebrate the best in fuzz, reverb and drone from every corner of the globe. As well as via their extensive back-catalogue and their Fuzz Club Eindhoven festival, one such particular medium through which they do this is their annual Reverb Conspiracy compilation albums.
Where the first five volumes were hailed as a Nuggets-like documentation of the European psych scene, Reverb Conspiracy Vol 6 â€“ due for release [date] â€“ sees the compilation go global: bringing together bands from South Africa, Australia, the USA, Germany, Brazil, the UK, Italy and Russia.
Amongst a number of the labelâ€™s own bands â€“ including Medicine Boyâ€™s shadowy noise-pop (DE) and Nest Eggâ€™s motorik â€œmood music for nihilistsâ€ (US), plus Steeple Removeâ€™s dub-inflected post-punk (FR) and Crimenâ€™s heady, repetitive psych-rock (IT) â€“ there is Aussie garage-psych outfit Nice Biscuit, an exclusive cut of Bikini Kill-meets-Oh Sees noise from Julia Robert (SA), as well as lo-fi garage-pop from Super Paradise (UK) and the double-barreled psych-blues wig-outs of Frankie & The Witch Fingers (US).
In the compilations darker moments, though, there is the hypnotically face-melting â€œspace-surfâ€ of Japanese Television (UK), goth-tinged post-punk from Float (UK), murky psychedelic stoner-rock from Brazilâ€™s Firefriend, relentlessly driving krautrock courtesy of VerstÃ¤rker (USA), the heavy space-rock drones of Psychic Lemon (UK) and Moscowâ€™s Selbram, who deal in a jagged alt-rock sound that takes its cues from No Wave, psych and the â€œpulse and noiseâ€ of city life.
