In thinking about Soft Machine's Michael Ratledge it occurs to me that I don't remember hearing anyone else use fuzz tone with organ outside of him, Dave Stewart and possibly David Sinclair (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm also thinking that most keyboardists probably thought the practice was passe after the advent of synthesizers. Even Ratledge stopped using that after awhile. I thought on Soft Machine I and II the fuzz organ was quite effective and attractive, a signature sound. It also seems that his combination of Lowery organ and the fuzz boxes he used made a unique sound. I also imagine him and Hugh Hopper discussing fuzz tones, sort of like Hopper and Hewins on a video I saw once. I imagine Ratledge had some foot pedals like Hopper. Funny I never read that or looked into it.
