The Tiny Ugly Germs - Nimbostratus

from by Fuck Yeah Effects Pedals



Between the three guitarists in the band The Tiny Ugly Germs use a myriad of effects pedals in not only our studio recordings, but our live sets as well. Appearing first on our album “Fun Sucks”, “Nimbostratus” was the first song the current lineup learned together and is a corner stone to our live set to this day. When listening to the track it’s blatantly apparent that it is an effects heavy song, with overdrive, delay and reverb jumping out in the first few beats of the song. We chose this track because of its effects heavy verses and post-chorus, and we thought it represents our sound in a favorable way. When dissecting the track in a gear sense, it makes it easy to see just how much effects pedals influence our sound, as well as all the labels and “sub-genres” that we’ve been thrown into.
The bands rigs:
