On the fifth page of the interview, Matty discusses his gear and says “I’m not as technical. I’ve got an Electro-Harmonix Clone Theory chorus, the Boss compressor, an Analogman Sun Face fuzz pedal, two small EHX Holy Grails and a Boss DD-3 delay. At the moment, I’m playing a Blackstar combo, the Artisan 30. Again, it’s very transparent. Then I’ve got a ’65 Mustang, a ’67 Mustang, a ’68 Mustang, and a ’78 Mustang.”more
I was playing a beautiful cream Les Paul custom that Jim owns and I turned my Analogman Sunface Fuzz pedal all the way up. Doing that to the pedal makes it very junky sounding (in the best possible way) and it has a lot of swagger. Sonically, I wanted something that sounded like a cross between John Lee Hooker and Marc Bolan in the modern age. It’s basically a song about something everyone can relate to – lust. ”more
Very accurate recreation of the fuzz face. Could be less scratchy and more middy, but that's preference. The 'power starve' knob also seemed to be finicky. The ability to plug in a power supply versus having to rely on a battery would have been nice as well.
