Screamin' Jay HAWKINS and The Fuzztones - Live 1985

Screamin' Jay HAWKINS and The Fuzztones - Live 1985


Following their fantastic 1984 live debut Leave Your Mind At Home, this EP gave yet another taste of the hard garage beat movement that was sweeping the nation during the 1980s. Among a plethora of singles and compilation appearances that year, this performance recorded at NYC's famous Irving Plaza venue backing up voodoo blues icon Screamin' Jay Hawkins only strengthened the 'Tones rep as the supreme rulers of the new garage beat.
