Supafuzz: Down For The Underground
by Dan Grote 

Supafuzz are a four piece rock band from Kentucky, who, according to their website, have released two studio albums and have toured with Fuel, Saliva, and Disturbed. Down for the Underground is the band’s first live album, and, for a relatively unknown band, it appears they have a much better handle on rock music than any of their major label tourmates.

Underground is twelve tracks of pure low-end-heavy rock that never strays off into metal territory or insults the audience’s intelligence with a nice pop-y ballad, although they do have one down-tempo song, “Confession.” In fact, one would be hard-pressed to figure out what the band’s supposed “hit song” is (once again, according to the band’s website, they are best known for a song called “I am the King”). There is one fan singalong, on the song “Sick of It,” so the band has to have fans somewhere, but by the same token, the live album was taped during a hometown show in Lexington, Kentucky. Here are the lyrics in case you ever find yourself at a Supafuzz show: “I think I’ll worship Satan, while I masturbate / tell me that’s alright, alright.”

The band’s sound recalls the southern grunge era that spawned bands like Alice in Chains and the Toadies (“Possum Kingdom”) and to a lesser degree Seven Mary Three (“Cumbersome”). For the instrumentally minded, yes Virginia, there are some rather impressive guitar solos, especially on “Confession” and “Mr. Policeman.” Lyric-wise, the songs range in topic from theological disagreements (“Arguing with God”), to drugs (“Tonic and Cigarettes”), to a poke at the trappings of fame (“Superstar”).

VERDICT: In another time, say, ten years ago, songs like these would be getting a fairly decent amount of airplay on modern rock stations across the country; unfortunately, the lack of a strong single will most likely keep Supafuzz at bay. Which is a shame, because if their live album is any indication, their studio work is most likely every bit as good.
