Revival of the 1970s New York Cult Garage & Surf from Fear City
Fear City is a musical collaboration started by guitarist Rory Fortune (formally of The Infrareds) and bassist Marlon Sporer (formally of The Occasion). Initially the duo was drawn together by their mutual interests in Surf Rock, Link Wray and Davie Allan but through the process of songwriting developed a broader creative scope.
Fear City brings us a pretty awesome instrumental album with kick ass guitar tunes in the tradition of Link Wray and Dick Dale, but don’t be fooled they do know how to keep their sound unique. You will hear that in the noise, the heavy grooves and variations. Try to listen ‘Big Slab’ and ‘Fast Getaway’ to get this vibe.
Sounds like: Link Wray | Dick Dale | Hound Dog Taylor | Guantanamo Baywatch | The Cramps
