Album Notes
Erv Felker and Difuser are some of Tulsa, Oklahoma's driving rock artists. Born by a chance meeting in Portland Oregon's "Satyricon" club, Erv Felker and Buz Ras soon became friends and headed out to Oklahoma to team up with Mike Armstrong. It's the Beverly Hillbillies in Reverse!With a career spanning the last decade, the band strive to deliver great rock & roll to all audiences. Their style varies from hard driving rock tunes to Surf and Punk Rock. The escapades of Difuser have produced several memorable Tulsa shows to include the televised snowy "Beatles Let It Be" tribute atop Sound Warehouse in January 2000, the Hole afterparty Nirvana Tribute 1999, the 1999 Elvis Tribute on CBS, The Sex Pistols Anniversary Special at The Cain's Ballroom, and nomination (yes, they lost) as Best Rock Act at the First Annual Spotnik Awards. The band supported Dick Dale and Agent Orange in 1999. From Hula skirts to straw hats, Difuser's left-of-center delivery evokes ideas of hot rods and tiki torches, martini bars and big stogies. When you're on board with Difuser, Life's a Party!

Thomas Conner--Tulsa World

"just a shade dirty, trashy, a bit more dangerous"
Shamrock has a song called "Difuser," Difuser has a song called "Seven Minute Lull," so is Seven Minute Lull working up a new song called "Underside"? Is this scene a little incestuous? No matter, Difuser's eagerly awaited CD debut sounds like no one else ... in town. It's frustrating to describe Difuser because of the impossible-to-avoid similarities to the most influential band of the decade, Nirvana. At one point, Difuser even considered paying the bills as a Nirvana tribute band. They stink of teen spirit. Difuser's Erv Felker fronts the band with the same shaggy-throated melodies wrapped in barks and barbed-wire, and the trio boasts the same mix of aggression and catchy pop of Nirvana's fledgling debut, "Bleach." Difuser, though, attacks the air while they're all smiles, belying the resignation expected of this brand of grinding guitars and stomping fury. The Oklahoma address may have a lot to do with this divergence, because more than a few times the band walks ! the line -- like Johnny Cash, that is. Tracks like "Bubba 'n' Sissy," "Broke Down" and certainly "Jethro Tulsa" are built atop possibly inadvertent retro, roadhouse grooves, complete with snare shuffles and twangy guitar accents. It almost makes Difuser's music seem a just a shade dirty, trashy, a bit more dangerous, even throughout the beautiful ballad "Surrender Dorothy." In a world in which everything is above ground, the slightest whiff of subversion is refreshing.

Infinity Press Magazine

...the fun loving charismatic nature of these players do come through in comic bliss with such tracks as "Fast Food Superworker" & "Jethro Tulsa". But the energy of the music is not always whimsical; and with tracks like "Here I Stand" and "Bleeding", the band unites in a sonic fusion that is larger than any one of them. It is heavy, it is satyrical - it is a full length album which is very well produced (thanks to Motion Audio Labs...props Sparquis). Let me put it this way, its far from an eight track trash demo recorded in someone's garage in Sapulpa. It is a professional work, and I look forward to the evolution of the group of extremely talented musicians and friends.

Difuser "Evil Monkey Trio" One Big Step For Music
Promoting The Evil Monkey Trio will be an easy task... Pounding rhythms, crunchy guitars, and catchy lyrics have become Difuser trademarks and this CD does more than veryfy these attributes in the 14 tracks compiled here. It gives the boys a chance to cut loose and go wild in a normally confined air of the recording studio. Band Manager[Davit] Souders tells us "This record is the Zenith of Difuser up to this point".
