Fuzz – Fuzz (2013) review

Fuzz “Fuzz” (In The Red, 2013)
      In less than a decade, California guitarist
and drummer Ty Segall has released dozens of albums, EPs, and 45s with over
half a dozen outfits. Fuzz is the latest project in his musical empire (it
actually reunites him with his former Epsilon bandmates) and if you’re familiar
with his other projects, you know what to expect. If not, then take a look at that
band name and album cover!
      Sabbathian sludge, Hendrixian pyrotechnics,
ominous vocals…. Yup, Halloween arrives early this year, boys and girls! Segall
hands the guitar reins over to supremo axeman Charlie Moothart so he can
concentrate on beating the shit out of his drumkit, while bassist Chad Ubovich
wraps it all up with a brain-throbbing backdrop.
       “What’s In My Head” is a beastly stalker with
Alice Cooper overtones, headbangers will unite to the fistpumping godhead that
is “Hazemaze”, and blood will flow from orifices you didn’t even know you had
as “Loose Sutures” (complete with Segall drum solo) pours over your head like a
vat of molten heavy metal.
      Outen the lights, fire up the bongs, and
prepare for the apocalypse – Fuzz has arrived!
