Product Description

This is the classic long lost British psychedelic funk album by Demon Fuzz

In a just world, Demon Fuzz would have been very successful. Sadly, however, the only real success they enjoyed is the fact that many club DJs now use their samples frequently. Although the band played most of the British underground festivals in the early seventies, Demon Fuzz were simply too way-out to make a significant impact on the college crowd and as a result they broke up after 18 months on the scene. Released in 1970 the band’s only album, the extraordinary Afreaka!, demonstrates their excellence in playing psychedelic soul, dub-heavy funk, progressive rock, Afro-jazz and black acid rock. Demon Fuzz these days are amongst the most bootlegged and sampled bands from the early 70s British underground. This re-release, which includes the stunning and rare EP that at the time was released along with the album, tells the band’s full story for the first time ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some exquisite listening March 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a gem of a find. The album does grow on you. Like another review indicated, most of the music is solid in regards to its overall musical composition though the vocalist is a bit rough in some parts but forgivable. These group was definitely trying despite their brief stint as an ensemble. You can get a sense of the raw, un-refined energy that their music evokes. Definitely a thumbs up if you're a fan of the brass horns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Funk on the railraod January 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is what started disco an funk, phycdelic soul. and man do you get it by the pound on this.The singing isn't as bad as some have said it adds a tripped element to it and is very welcoming to me at least. Check this out if you want to hear someting like early funkadelic, sly stone, and santanna mixed

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Black Rock Jazz Funk, etc. February 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
What a great find this CD was, "Disillusioned" is worth the price alone.
This album is so heavy, a few of the youngsters around today could surely learn a few things about how real music is supposed to go down.
I only wish I could of witnessed such a band live!
Really impressive prog rock funk!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Demon Fuzz were an early 1970s horn rock band. They released one album on Dawn, Pyes' progressive subsitiary. This is that album and the CD throws in an extended play single

This is not funk in the strict sense. They are horn rock, but don't let that mislead you. They lean more towards the progressive tendancies of Ten Wheel Drive than the singles work of post-1973 Chicago or Blood Sweat and Tears after the second album,

That is evident on the first track, a long jazz blues jam which rests, aptly enough, on fuzz bass. The albums continues with a heavier version of Electric Flag's "another country."

Of all the horn bands from this era, Demon Fuzz may be the most influanced by acid rock and not soul or jazz. They have defineately have absorbed the Hendrix' intagration of all forms of African American music with hard rock.

Great album
