We told you it was coming… The Fuzz, the Guitar, the Bananas… Your long wait is over: you can now buy Egon and Brazilian fuzz archaeologist Joel Stones’ Brazil Fuzz Guitar Bananas over at Stones Throw’s webstore. We’ve been telling folks that this anthology is a follow up to Psych Funk 101 and if that was a primer course, this is master class. Thus, you really have to take in this album in its entirety – it’s not as if we can easily describe songs like Ton e Sergio’s “Vou Sair Do Cateveiro,” and it’s not as if that song can be separated from the other nuggets on the set. But we’re giving you a taste of Fabio’s “Lindo Sonho Delirante” (“LSD” – get it?) to get your trip started right.
Check out the details of the anthology, and see more pictures of our (insert pat on the back here) extraordinary packaging here.

Do you understand German? If so, you’ll dig hearing the Whitefield Brothers’ expound on their musical lineage in this piece on Germany’s Bunch TV. If you’re like us, and you can barely muster an “Eine milchkaffee bitte” when you’re sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Munich after finding a priced-out-of-this-world original Schiesshaus press of Can’s Monster Movie, well, you’ll at least enjoy hearing the band rock “Sol Walk.”
