Demon Fuzz was an afro-rock group of which its members had all immigrated to Britain from Commonwealth countries. Released in 1970 as the band's only album, the extraordinary Afreaka!, demonstrates their excellence in playing psychedelic soul, dub-heavy funk, progressive rock, afro-jazz and black acid rock. Demon Fuzz these days are amongst the most bootlegged and sampled bands from the early 70s British underground. It was a Billboard "4-STAR" selection in June 1971.
The band's name means "devil's children or bad policemen". They originally played soul, but the music they heard during a trip to Morocco lead to a change in their style to what has been described as a blend of funk, rock, jazz, and African music, a mash of Afro-Latin funk, breakbeats, tripped-out soul, jazz fusion, and psychedelic rock.
