Rudi's 2006 Fuzztones consisted of former Bonniwell Music Machine alumni, Lenny Svilar, Lana Loveland and Rob Ampersand, as well as former Link Wray drummer Rob Louwers - truly a Garage supergroup!
Preachers' Fyl Cuda, Sexy Drive's Cisvo and Fuzz fan Freddie join Lana and Rudi for a photo op.
Illegitimate Spawn feature artists, Strange Flowers, opened all the Italian shows, including Pordenone, Massa Carerra, Rimini and Florence.

After switching to the biggest booking agency in Greece, DiDi Music, the Fuzztones made a triumphant return to Rudi's fatherland.
Highlights were two nights in Athens, and one in Thessaloniki, and a radio interview with Konstandinos Dagas. Thank You!
Although most of The Fuzztones were sick, the show must go on, and the band insisted Lana recouperate while they did the Dusseldorf show. The Fuzztones have only performed twice before without their beloved combo organ - once in 1990 at San Francisco's Nightbreak club, and once at an unnanounced pre-tour warm-up gig in 2005. Thankfully Lana rejoined the guys for the remainder of shows in Stuttgart, Berlin and Hamburg, where Rudi locked the band out of the hotel, forcing them to explore the Reeperbahn nightlife until dawn the following day (ain't life tough?)...
The Fuzztones auditioned a 4 piece horn section at their soundcheck at the White Trash in Berlin, and brought them up for a two song encore of "She's Wicked" and "Ward 81." A preview of things to come!
