After School Special is the collaborative effort of Peachfuzz (Andy Mason) and Bryan Ford. Though formally conceived in 1998, After school Special actually is the continuation of musical ideas that began as early as 1990 when Peachfuzz and Bryan were high school friends. Despite the fact that both hail from different music backgrounds and tastes, the sound they create as After School Special comes together like chocolate and peanut butter
After School Special is the perfect mix of a musician’s sensibilities with the raw enthusiasm of a flea market record shopper. Bryan is an accomplished musician and bona fide music hound, Peachfuzz a bona fide musician and accomplished music junkie. Peachfuzz’s knack for finding the tastiest, on-the-fly samples from obscure vinyl gives way to Bryan’s hypnotic beats and throbbing bass lines. The end result is a sound best described as soothingly smooth and sexually forgiving, yet tastefully raw and eerily moving.
