Shoegazing (also known as shoegaze) is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. It lasted there until the mid 1990s, with a critical zenith reached in 1990 and 1991. The British music press—particularly NME and Melody Maker—named this style shoegazing because the musicians in these bands stood relatively still during live performances in a detached, introspective, non-confrontational state, hence the idea that they were gazing at their shoes. The heavy use of effects pedals also contributed to the image of performers looking down at their feet during concerts.
The shoegazing sound is typified by significant use of guitar effects, and indistinguishable vocal melodies that blend into the creative noise of the guitars. […] Recent times have seen a renewed interest in the genre among “nu-gaze” bands.
Fuzz // Phase // Delay bridges the gap between Electronic and Indie Rock music. While celebrating both individual fields, much of the music is from artists that have their feet – and their influences – firmly planted on both sides of the fence. Scratch that – there is no fence.
The host, Trevor Refix, is a new face in the Powell River community. Trevor has been a successful DJ for the last 10 years – playing his unique brand of House music at festivals, warehouse parties and club nights around BC. He is also an Indie Rock fanatic with a large vinyl and ticket stub collection, who makes his own music under the name Texture & Light.
Tune in to hear music that is equally suited for dancing, for driving, or for long headphone walks.
