The Phuss play fast, loud, dirty rock and roll. The three-piece from Fort Worth, TX, are best described as Garage Rock- loud as hell with fierce guitar riffs, punchy, raw lead bass, intense vocals, and precision drumming drenched in grease. The band formed in 2008 with front-man and guitarist Josh Fleming and drummer Trey Alfaro, adding bassist Forrest Barton in 2010. The Phuss’s second full length album, produced by Vaden Todd Lewis (Singer and songwriter of legendary Texas band The Toadies) and Robby Baxter (Moby) is full of distorted, loud, but melodic and frightfully sharp, precise rock tunes. “Their talent is overt and arresting. The result is artful and moves at a very real momentum. There is no hyperbole with The Phuss. The trio of musicians affects a posture exactly commensurate with their ability to knife through the room. Their stage strut is a claim made veracious by their impressively tight sound. It is rock and roll in its most crystalline, adrenal seductiveness.” (D Magazine 9-2010)
The three piece is one of the biggest and best rock bands in North Texas, and they are currently embarking on an extensive tour, including dates at New York’s CMJ Music Marathon.
The Phuss just wrapped up a set at Dia De Los Toadies 5, have been on 2 national tours this year, and a regional tour as direct support for the Toadies. Their reputation is growing exponentially in DFW and NYC, making and playing 2 official CMJ Showcases in NY next month.
On their way to NYC they will be in the Pittsburgh area on October 13. at Pete B’s Big Red Barn http://www.peterbonline.com/
