ABOUT THE KNIGHTS OF FUZZ

The Scene: Any town in the world. A band on stage sweats the bullets of true rock believers. Their Beatle-boots fit snugly, their Vox guitars and wheezing Farfisa organ
blast the sermon of fuzz. It’s a classic garage rock scene from 1966 – and 1986,
and 2006 – and now.

The history of garage rock’s rebirth is now told – through the new book
The Knights of Fuzz: the new garage & psychedelic music explosion
.

The ongoing Knights of Fuzz history project began as a 1990 book titled Echoes In Time. This first modern garage-psych history book, written by award-winning author Timothy Gassen, quickly sold out, and today is a much sought-after rarity.

The book doubled in size for its 1995 update edition as The Knights of Fuzz, is
regarded as the “bible” reference source for the garage and psychedelic music revival
of the 1980s and 1990s, and has garnered universal praise from across the globe. (It is also long sold-out, and original copies of the 1995 book sell regularly for well over $100 on the collector’s market.)

And now The Knights of Fuzz are back! Timothy Gassen's world-renowned series that defines the garage-psych music revival returns with the long-awaited updating of the
1995 book and the official re-issue of the 2006 video DVD.

The main portion of The Knights of Fuzz DVD is a documentary introduction to the
neo-garage scene, plus 20 newly-restored music videos from the best bands of the era. (See the band and video track listing at left.) Bonus video clips and radio show interviews complete the feature-packed DVD.

The new 500-page paper book features thousands of international neo-garage and psychedelic band histories, extensive CD and vinyl discographies, hundreds of interviews, and hundreds of rare photos and album cover reproductions.

Chapters focus on international fanzines, garage music video, compilation albums, plus
a detailed analysis of the worldwide modern garage and psychedelic scene from 1980
to now.

Author Timothy Gassen also includes feature pieces from other invited notable
international garage music authorities, widening the breadth of coverage for the
ongoing global caveteen phenomenon – the garage and psych bands that are
The Knights of Fuzz.

The 2014 updated paper book and video DVD make The Knights of Fuzz available again for a whole new garage generation – and for the garage generations to come.

IT'S TIME TO JOIN THE GARAGE CRUSADE! THE KNIGHTS OF FUZZ ARE BACK!
