Swedish Fuzz Monsters Truckfighters are one of those bands that carry a ton of word of mouth hype and after their wild set on Sunday afternoon at Psycho California Fest at the Observatory in Santa Ana, all I can say is believe the hype. A three piece of stoner rock fury that pack more fuzz than your filthy lint trap. Scene legend Josh Homme (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age) called them “the best band that’s ever existed,” appearing on the band’s 2011 “fuzzomentry” simply titled Truckfighters. Their set was a non-stop barrage of desert rock with Ozo (vocals/bass) and Enzo (drums) rocking the back-line, while guitarist Dango, bearded and wild eyed, jumped around the stage like a man possessed. An hour of fuzzed out big riff stoner rock highlighted by the epic Desert Cruiser (2005 Gravity X) and new tracks Mind Control & The Chairman (2014 Universe).

Truckfighters Setlist: Mind Control, Manhattan Project, Warhead, The Chairman, Monte Gargano, Helium 28, Desert Cruiser
