Allen Camp wanted to record a demo. He was up in Seattle and planning on coming back home to San Diego, so he called Mike Kamoo and asked if he could help him. Mike told Allen that he could hook him up with local musicians Cliff Barton and Andy White; they would help him record the sessions. Allen Camp didn’t have any money and knew he would have to call on his friends to get him back on his feet. As soon as he got off the plane, Allen discovered that his own father had sold all his music gear to buy drugs. Allen had to borrow a guitar and amp for the recording… He had nothing but the clothes in his bag. He started the recording session on Friday and left the sessions on Sunday with a full-length album and a band. They decided to start up a record label called Paper Cut Records. Their first release was the self-titled Fuzz-Huzzi. It quickly became the top selling local band in the South Bay MusicTrader in 1995. The band started to get street credibility by playing with all types and genres of music. The fan base grew and so did the shows. They started opening up for national acts and playing the top clubs in their area. They quickly went back into the studio to record their sophomore album, working day and night, knowing that this time they had something to prove. This album was the effort of a group that was growing as musicians and as friends. This album, Release Me, was released in 1996, during a time when making a CD was a big deal for an Indie Band. The CD sold out its first pressing within a six-month time frame, and has been re-pressed three additional times. This was with no help from the industry at all. Fuzz-Huzzi could not even get the San Diego Weekly Reader to review the CD. It seemed like Fuzz-Huzzi couldn’t get a break from anyone in San Diego and often resorted to selling the CD from the trunks of their cars and local bars. They pushed on, playing more and more shows and they were the only local band at the time to sell out the Coach House on a weekday. They gained a huge following that notably, never caused disturbances or fights in the clubs and local bars.
In 1997 Mike Kamoo was the first original member to leave the band and pursue other projects. Drummer Mike Kamoo was replaced by Jason La Fave, who happened to be Allen Camp’s best friend. He fit right in this band and it felt like it couldn't get any better for Fuzz-Huzzi. Soon after, Fuzz-Huzzi went back into the studio to record a new CD. The members of the band were holding down day jobs and playing shows sometime seven days a week and eventually this pace began taking its toll. This CD had to be better than the last or they would not release it. During this time, bassist Andy White was frequently flying out to Texas for his job. It was in Texas that he met his future wife and soon, he announced was leaving the band and getting married. Fuzz-Huzzi decided not to give up and kept going as a three-piece and this version of the band continued working very hard in an attempt to keep the project moving… until Jason la Fave decided he wanted out. Allen was devastated. The band was Allen's life and now, was a drummer-less two-piece. Soon after Jason quit, Fuzz-Huzzi hired a drummer by the name of John Price, a very positive out going guy that happened into a bitter, jaded and tired band. The CD that they recorded with Jason and Andy was never released and they started recording another album with John Price. This CD was all over the map with too many tracks to choose from. Allen and Cliff were never satisfied- always pushing John away from the project, never letting him into their circle; they felt they were too tight to take suggestions from a “fill in” drummer. During a gig at Imperial Beach’s Office Lounge, Fuzz Huzzi decided to call it quits. Cliff and Allen stayed up all night reminiscing about the good old days and drinking whiskey to ease the pain. Not long after, Allen started working on another project but this project was not going to fly, it just didn’t have the heart and Allen knew it. So he formed the band Suckerfish. This band grew really fast, had a great following and a good sound-the whole package except one thing, they didn’t want to leave town on tour. Allen knew that if they didn't tour the band would die in the San Diego music scene. So Allen walked from the most successful project he had ever put together. Playing in a cover band for extra money, the crowd would frequently ask Allen to play Fuzz-Huzzi songs and Allen started to teach his band Fuzz-Huzzi songs, until the cover band morphed into a tribute band. Allen loved seeing the former Fuzz-Huzzi fans coming out to see his cover band playing Fuzz-Huzzi tunes. Then Allen decided to record a CD on his own. With the help of some musicians and his friends he recorded Rock n Roll ain’t Easy. This CD had the Fuzz-Huzzi vibe. Allen released the CD and formed a new band to support it, but each time, the band would dissolve when it came time to tour. Allen kept looking for musicians to help him take his music to the next level and was getting ready to call it quits when he got a call from a really good friend who hooked him up with a guitar maker by the name of Wayne. Allen and Wayne quickly hit it off. Wayne became a fan of Allen's music and decided to sponsor Allen, before he really had a band! Axis Guitars fully endorsed the band and soon, Allen got the chance to open for the national act, Warrant. Allen put together a group of musicians that he thought would quit after the mini tour, but they grew together and Allen knew this band had everything he had been looking for. Coming full circle through the many hard roads of blood, sweat tears and pain, Fuzz Huzzi has finally moved on in its journey with a new life and has given Allen Camp the opportunity to share his passion with others. It is this hard life that makes Fuzz Huzzi the most real and hardest working band on the market today.
