"Sex Museum formed in Madrid in 1985, with the desire to be the musical version of The Warriors, in the style of a street gang out of the mod scene. We were heavily musically influenced by '60s American garage, English music from the '60s and early '80s garage revival. . . . we shared everything, experiences, tastes, friends, drugs and the desire to grow with the music and open up a new hole in the world as commandos of garage rock. . . . We disconnected completely from what was happening in Spain and began to form relationships, befriend and connect with other bands from the rest of Europe and the United States, which made us to feel that we were heading down the correct path. We managed to get some songs on international compilations which also put us on the map. Our first tours of Europe prepared us to be what we were in 1987, the year in which we recorded the Fuzz Face LP. One part garage music and the other part sixties music, a musical concept and genre that almost did not exist then and that was beginning to take shape. Our musical references were bands like The Prisoners, The Tell Tale Hearts, The Sonics, The Music Machine, The Yardbirds and The Pretty Things. But our energy and spirit also made nods to The Jam, Buzzcocks, The Boys, The Bishops, The Inmates, The Vibrators, and many other bands from the end of the '70s and the beginning of the '80s. We had been in contact with some record companies, but after reviewing the possibilities we had with a few, we decided to produce the disc ourselves. It was a pretty complicated adventure, and after asking, we decided to rent the license of a label that no longer existed, Fidias, in order to release the album on our own. We got to the studio and we recorded this album in two sessions, one at night, with a drummer and a bass player, and another night a few weeks later with a different rhythm section."
