Seattle garage-rock outfit Night Beats' brand of bluesy, psychedelic rock & roll has seen them achieve a cult-like status at an unfathomable pace. The trio is seen by many as cutting edge garage rock innovators, which is quite a feat when it's so common to see modern garage-rock bands fall into the trap of being overly nostalgic to their R&B forefathers, to the point of unoriginality. In January 2016 the trio released their third LP Who Sold My Generation on Heavenly Recordings which was met to massive, wide-spread praise.
During a UK tour in support of the album, London imprint Fuzz Club invited the band to spend one of their days off at Lovebuzz Studios, an analogue studio in South London, and record a live session. The result is the first installment in the Fuzz Club Session series. The reasoning behind the live session series is to take some of the best names in psych and rock & roll, bring them to a studio and strip things down to their absolute fundamentals - just raw, unkempt rock, recorded straight to tape in one take using totally analogue equipment.
There wasn'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. Repressed with new artwork.
