Here’s a platter of “proto-punk” from ‘72 reissued by the good people at HoZac, with New York City’s Fury, fronted by Sonny Vincent who would later find further notoriety in the Testors, blasting out a couple of hoary ‘70s garage numbers which seem heavily influenced by classic rockers like Deep Purple as well as The Stooges and the MC5. The repetitive riffs, hollerin’ vocals and filthy guitar tones aren’t more than a stone’s throw from what Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are doing now. Dirty biker rock with a coating of amphetamine-streaked grease. If Uncle Acid ever appeared on the Old Grey Whistle Test this is probably what the performance would sound like.
There’s a bit of a glam strut to the B side which has shades of prime-era Slade but once again it’s good hard rocking fun with gnarly guitar tones and a nice warm boomy bass, some nice shaker action too. Cool reissue, if this was coming out on Rise Above people would be falling over themselves to get their mitts on a copy.
