Are We Nearly There Yet? FuzzFace's debut album is now available. Click on the image above to find out about the LP. Read the reviews below!

What's On in London, 15 May 2005

'There's a bit of a scene around Colchester at the moment, The place that once was home to Damon Albarn has loads of new and talented bands. FuzzFace stand out. Their album Are We Nearly There Yet? has a 60s and early 70s feel with energetic nods to The Who, The Small Faces, Rod era Faces, The Kinks and freakbeat. 'The Idiot Country Boy' is the missing link between 60s psychedelia and 90s baggy while 'Norristown' with its Jimmy Smith style wild organ and jangling, fractured guitar sound is like Paul Weller's band doing Booker T & the MGs, 'Someone Else' has the energy of the Libertines, with the quirkyness of early Blur and the Monkees perfectly distilled. 'Peeping Tom' is like an early incarnation of David Bowie fronting the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Live, FuzzFace have a fearsome reputation. Now watch them take London by storm.'

Essex Chronicle, Friday 27 May 2005: "Are We Nearly There Yet?"

'Veneration of vinyl greats isn't meant to be this cool. While Noel and Liam continue to dish up insipid derivative rock like a Fifties housewife clinging to a lard cookbook, Colchester band FuzzFace are busy using the past to create a very tasty future for themselves.
There's no denying the influences on Are We Nearly There Yet? A Kinks/Small Faces songwriting sentiment, Mod rhythms and a Cream cool dominate throughout but FuzzFace clearly never get lost in the nostalgia. There's lightness and humour here reminiscent of I Should Coco and songs like Special and Bide Your Time are blessed with a brilliant Strokes air. No wonder the recent album launch gig was a sell-out at Colchester Arts Centre. A most welcome and kitsch-free blast from the past.'

'FuzzFace pump out a blend of jaunty pop melodies, clipped guitar work and funky organ grooves...[and] deal out meaty slabs of mod infused guitar pop that Oasis can only dream about these days...FuzzFace flow with a wiry sense of electricty and excitement.'
