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!
