Check out Country Fuzz Spectacular (MP3s) by @ WFMU's "Beware of the Blog" There's just song after song after of country fuzztone guitar.
"The racket made by a fuzztone guitar has been described as the sound of two bees fighting inside of a tin can."
"Ask your friends to give you an example of this crazy menacing sound and they're likely to name Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones. Or maybe they'll refer you to Jimi Hendrix, The Yardbirds, or even Davie Allan & The Arrows, who recorded tons of fuzzy guitar instrumentals for biker movie soundtracks. Given the rock and roll reputation of the fuzztone sound, those are all pretty understandable responses."
"I'm here today, though, to share with you some fine examples of country music fuzz. While that might sound counter-intuitive it actually makes perfect sense given the fact that the fuzztone sound was created by the legendary Nashville session picker Grady Martin. Martin's immense talent was used to great effect on thousands of recordings, probably none of which were more influential than the rock and roll sides he cut with Johnny Burnette Trio in Nashville in 1956. On songs like Honey Hush and [listen] Train Kept A Rollin' (MP3), record buyers heard Martin cut loose with astonishing levels of distortion that hinted at the fuzztone sound he accidentally created a few short years later."
