Fvzz Popvli (IT)
This band of California rifflords pillage the best of vintage hard rock while keeping their laser eyes on the future, creating a unique brand of oddball psychedelia. Their onstage performance is a glammed-up force to be reckoned with and they've been taking their act on the road from the West Coast all the way to Europe.The original concept for Glitter Wizard was to be a stoner-glam band," says front man Wendy Stonehenge. Wizards, as you know, are often associated with the arcane, the supernatural and mind-altering drugs. And glitter? "Glitter is like the herpes of art supplies," quips bassist Arthur Tea. "You can never really get rid of it."Originally formed in Santa Cruz by Stonehenge, the band's current incarnation materialized in San Francisco two years ago.Onstage, perhaps, is where most of the "glitter" comes in as Glitter Wizard incorporates the visual flair of glam rock into its performance. The stark contrast of red lipstick being encroached upon by guitarist Lorfin Terrafor's (a name he adopted from one of his Dungeons & Dragons characters) unkempt facial hair brings to mind a certain "wizard" of lore, Roy Woodcirca 1973. Add to that some flashy synthetic fibers, bared chests and women's lingerie, and you have what is commonly referred to as "a curiosity."
