The Fuzz Haunted built their self-titled, debut CD on loud guitars, accordions, singing saws, feedback, church organs and police sirens. But it's the band's distinct and layered vocal harmonies that really stand out, particularly on this track titled "Tiger Balm."

Hailing from New York, The Fuzz Haunted is the latest musical collaboration from Steve Dawson & Randy Lord. The two were members/creators of the costume-adorning 70s' rock/R&B quintet Bad Ass Franklin and the Strangtecular Band.

The Fuzz Haunted name refers to chronic problems the band had with local police while trying to record their debut album in a residential garage. Neighbors complained about the noise.
