Pronto a lanciare questo treno a folle velocità nelle lande stralunate che nessuno sa come mappare sulle cartine geografiche della musica giovane e rigogliosa.

David Fiuczynski: KiF Express

Read "KiF Express" reviewed by Phil DiPietro

David “Fuze" Fiuczynski continues to obliterate the boundaries of modern-day electric guitar styles, pushing himself further forward into the “world" sounds, techniques, scales, and rhythms that now constitute his calling-card. Funk can be 4/4 or 11/8, tone distorted or bone dry, chords root-fifth crunchers or undeniably undecipherable . He can make a fretted guitar sound fretless, ...

Screaming Headless Torsos: 2005

Read "2005" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The title of the new Screaming Headless Torsos record marks more than the calendar year to come. It's a conscious sign that nearly a decade has passed since the funk/hardcore group burst out with its self-titled debut, recently reissued as 1995 by Fuzelicious Morsels. During that period there's been a live release and a double-DVD set, ...

David Fiuczynski & Rufus Cappadocia: Kif

Read "Kif" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The country of Morocco is respected throughout Europe for, among other things, an estimated 30% of the continent's marijuana imports. The superior raw material called Kif is found there in the mountains of Rif. In Arabic, it's spelled كيف. Okay, got that? Enough said.

But don't go into Kif, the record, thinking it's some ...

David Fiuczynski: Black Cherry Acid Lab

Read "Black Cherry Acid Lab" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Radio's the enemy!

When Black Cherry Acid Lab first came out as a rough CD-R a few years ago, it caused a bit of a stir among insiders. Guitarist David “Fuze" Fiuczynski had established his idiosyncratic (to say the least) style with the Screaming Headless Torsos, but here he was stretching his music to ...

Read "Black Cherry Acid Lab" reviewed by Phil DiPietro

Calling all Screaming Headless Torsos fans! Report here for an interim dose of the in-your-face, funkingly dissonant energy that they're all about. But remember-this isn't your father's Torsos! It's their leader, Dave Fiuczynski, capitalizing on the freedom that comes with helming a do-it-yourself label, Fuzelicious Morsels, by unleashing the furiously freakish fruits of his Black Cherry ...

Screaming Headless Torsos: Live!

Read "Live!" reviewed by AAJ Staff

In September of 1996, the Screaming Headless Torsos went live for the mikes at the Knitting Factory in New York. For any critics who claimed their prior studio effort was staged or polished, Live! set the record straight: the Torsos wield just as much raw energy and electicism on stage as they do in the studio. ...

Screaming Headless Torsos: 1995

Read "1995" reviewed by AAJ Staff

This is the record that started it all. In 1995, the Screaming Headless Torsos burst out with their eponymous debut on Discovery. Guitarist David “Fuze" Fiuczynski, who had been active as a sideman for other players, finally stepped into the limelight. His virtuosity and versatility perfectly suited the open-ended project, a quintet lineup with Dean Bowman ...

David Fiuczynski's Headless Torsos: Amandala

Read "Amandala" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The primary challenge facing guitarist David “Fuze" Fiuczynski appears to be keeping his great powers in check. Fuze has a frightening mastery of his instrument, which manifests itself in exquisite control of tone and inhuman virtuosity. His newly-revised FHT represents an outgrowth of the Screaming Headless Torsos, which scream no more after the departure of vocalist ...

David Fiuczynski: Jazz Punk

Read "Jazz Punk" reviewed by Scott Andrews

David “Fuze" Fiuczynski, prolific guitarist and songwriter, first gained fame as the leader and primary writer for Screaming Headless Torsos. SHT wielded a funk/jazz/hard rock fusion with full knowledge and rendition of the varied styles they appropriated. Many bands dabble in cross-style combinations without really understanding the other genres they explore, but Fuze and SHT truly ...
