Fuzz: The Sound that Changed the World

2007 NR

Filmmaker Clif Taylor's fascinating documentary looks into fuzz boxes: the sound-tweaking, signal-distorting invention used by many of the world's great electric guitarists. Delving into the world of these circuit-bending "noise makers," Taylor turns to musicians Billy Gibbons, Jon Spencer, J. Mascis and Wolfmother's Chris Ross for insights about which boxes are the best -- and the most cacophonous.
