Fuad & The Feztones V
Artist / Band / Musician
Yes, it is true; Fuad and his gang of beer-swilling frat boys are back with a brand new 20 track CD of 60’s inspired Garage-Soul/Frat-Rock stompers. Due to the extraordinarily positive response to their vinyl-only ep “In the Valley Of the Kings” released on Ricochet Sound a few years ago, The Feztones thought that they had better record a full length album - and for all you squares out there without turntables, the boys have decided to put it out on CD this time!
Wait a minute! Who are these Egyptian frat boys and how did they end up cutting such a swinging platter?
It all starts to add up when you realize that singer / guitar player Fuad Ramses and bass man Rich N. Ready of the Feztones are in reality Bobby Beaton and John Davis of legendary Montreal garage band The Gruesomes! Together with drummer extrordinaire Lew Dacts and Sax-&-Keys man Tip Hazard (better know as Dave Hamelin and Liam O’Neil of Montreal rockers The Stills), these four veterans of the Montreal Music scene crammed themselves into the foul, sweaty, recording studio known as The Mummy’s Tomb and cut some of the craziest 60’s twister garage soul ever laid down by gods or men.
The band can be heard paying musical tribute to great R&B groups like Booker T. & the MG’s, the Markeys and Willie Mitchell, soloists like Freddy King and King Curtis and all the great goofy party bands of the 60’s like the Kingsmen and Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs! This record really cooks - but don’t take our word for it! Pick up a copy and slap it on at your next frat party and watch what happens! We guarantee you will have a Tut-uncommonly good time.
Still not sure what to make of all this Egyptian Frat-Rock stuff? Think of the party scene in Animal House but instead of Togas everyone is wearing a fez! This is Fuad’s dream.
