They are part of the underground resistance and with this forthcoming release on Little Cloud Records and Cardinal Fuzz Firefriend have creted their magnum opus in “Avalanche“. An aural document of the Nihilistic storm that is part of living in the 21st century.
Firefriend pull the threads that links the great subversive bands of the 60’s through into the 80’s and beyond to create something that feels like a bit of everything that thread ever touched – from the Velvet Underground to Spacemen 3 via John Coltrane, W.Burroughs, Louis Ferdinand Céline and Jean-Luc Godard. Their sound doesn’t rush to the pop hook or stall itself in the crunchy riffs, it glides above everything else in its own orbit, echoing the best parts of psychedelic, shoegaze, and noise by taking it all into strange new fields of bliss. Do yourself a favor. Turn the music on, the lights off, and let yourself go.

Cardinal Fuzz are pleased to bring to you a meeting of North East and the East via Newcastle Sike Lords – Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska and joining them , the legendary Japanese musician Suzuki Junzo (Miminokoto, 20 Guilders and Overhang Party as well as many solo titles) who unleashes a glorious tsunami of psychedelic honey via guitar.
Over four sides of vinyl they create a tumultuous crescendo of psychedelic drone acid jam worship. Recorded and mixed by MP Wood at the Soundrooms, Gateshead as Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska took the good opportunity to book some studio time as Suzuki Junzo was playing in Newcastle with them while touring Europe. The sheer joy of playing together on stage carried over from that show into the recording studio where over a stonking 75 minutes your ears are treated to an eternal freak-out. The Snakes bring a bottom end Sabbath thud while Jude (Guitar) creates a swirling and warped glide over the top of which Suzuki Junzo unleashes crazed 6 string fireworks.
And if that does not set your heart a flutter then as the insert says “If you are looking for psychedelic music, do not buy this record unless you are looking for psychedelic music” 300 Pressing Worldwide. Presented in a 350gsm Wide Spine Sleeve with a full size insert and download code.

Cardinal Fuzz are proud to bring to you the debut double LP from Cardiff Space, Garage, psych destruction wasters – Infinity Forms Of Yellow Remember.
Rolling in on psychedelic haze of “Strange Flotsam On The Rising Tide” , don’t be fooled as IFOYR share the love of the holy trinity that is Volume, Repetition and Wah-Wah Pedals – a religious zeal that is shorn through the tracks that follow on this incredible debut LP. In “Surely They Know” what has to be the Summer (Acid) Hit of 2019 is here, for those who always wondered how Hawkwind via the Beach Boys might sound (anybody?) – wonder no longer as on a refrain of “California Death Trip n My Bones” Infinity Forms of Yellow Remember take you on a whirling white noise blizzard of a trip. In “Great Vibrating Season” and “Walk With The King” IFOYR build from transcendental floating psychedelia to a fuzz soaked garage wipe out, while all the time riding a ruthless motorik drive. Welcome to the best debut LP (and a double LP at that) of 2019, found lurking in Cardiff – Infinity Forms Of Yellow Remembers album is a intoxicating and joyous listening experience.
