Garage rock so effin' loud it should be called basement noise. Hot damn, think I just coined a genre no one will ever use! "Basement Noise"
That said, doesn't mean The Phuss is without melodic groove, no question you can hear it amid the twisted off volume knobs.
These three guys out of Fort Worth have built a very respectable catalog and following since the band first formed back in 2008. The man up front and guitarist Josh Fleming started it up with drummer Trey Alfaro four years ago, then adding bassist Forrest Barton two years later.
Back in March and April of this year the band got a chance to play a few dates with the Toadies and Sealion throughout Texas.
Post Toadies tour, The Phuss got a chance to play ArtsGoggle in Fort Worth with another local fav. band The Hanna Barbarians back May 19th before heading to Dallas last week to play LaGrange with The Riverboat Gamblers.
How loud can they really be? Judge for yourself with this clip/performance from April 15th at Otto's Shruken Head in East Village - New York.
