‘Planting a Tree’ – One Million Fuzztone Guitars, Live 1983

Dusting off their copies of ‘Rock and Roll Animal’ and ‘Funhouse’, One Million Fuzztone Guitars take to the Persian carpeted stage of the Newshouse in Nottingham for a Hard Rock work out of old favourites and the new, never before released ‘Planting A Tree’, the only live recording we think.

Play it Loud!

‘Country Rock’ the final One Million Fuzztone Guitars session

Another one unearthed from the Vaults of Rock.

As far as we can figure out, the final recorded session of One Million Fuzztone Guitars. Let us know if you know different. Three country rock tracks with a tinge of psychedelia. Brother Dave Robbins gets the cover shot for obvious reasons. Pull up that chair on the veranda, pour yourself a glass of Jack D and enjoy.

"And he dressed that guitar like a mutha!"

One Million Fuzztone Guitars live at The National Theatre, Southbank, London 1983.

“Handsome, debonair, and weird. Some times I’d think “this is way too weird, I wish they had one less fuzz-tone guitar”, and then another night I’d be thinking “damn this is normal, can’t they get another fuzz-tone guitar”. On reflection, I think you nailed it!” Dave Sketchley

Thank you Andrew Dickinson for finding the photographs!

We just need to find the tape and the film……..Big Jake.
