Album Review

The word "prolific" comes up in almost every discussion of San Francisco songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and garage-psych wonder Ty Segall. With a discography that grew almost exponentially ever since he came onto the scene in the late 2000s, productivity with uncommonly strong results became one of his calling cards. With Fuzz, Segall joins longtime friends and collaborators Charles Moothart and Roland Cosio to create a band deserving of its own entity status, channeling the (aptly) fuzzy guitar tones, tin-can drums, and saturated psychedelia of early-'70s proto-metal gods like Blue Cheer, the Groundhogs, and Jimi Hendrix. Segall, usually known for his guitar-wielding antics, actually makes an incredible showing as the drummer for Fuzz, still joining guitarist/vocalist Moothart with his distinctly sneery vocals. Were it not for the meeting of the pair's decidedly punkish unhinged voices, Fuzz would give no clues that punk, indie rock, or any non-heavy music after 1976 ever happened. With the exception of the fast-paced "Hazemaze," the songs here largely fall into an overblown swagger, with scuzzy distorted guitar tones, wailing witchy harmonies, and an elastic heaviness that owes most of its charm to the blueprints of Black Sabbath's classic first six albums. The quick-shifting tempo changes and fluttering blues-scale solos of "Loose Sutures" take their cues directly from Tony Iommi's playing, and the meandering jam that falls in the song's middle even finds bassist Cosio loosely quoting Geezer Butler's basslines from Sabbath's earliest, evilest jams. "Raise," with its demonic backing vocals and druggy, spiraling lead guitars, calls to mind hints of the early San Francisco psychedelic scene in the '60s, leaning only slightly away from the primordial metal and biker rock flavor of the rest of the album. Fuzz, on the whole, is a heavy, greasy, stoned affair, with enough of a foot in the past to cast a sepia-toned haze over all the songs, but still a boldly creative and original set of room-demolishing tunes. The main success of a band connected to Segall's enormous musical personality is to not be overwhelmed or outshined by it, and in its best moments, Fuzz will have listeners forgetting Segall is part of the equation at all, the album's brooding heaviness more immediately moving than any of his distinctive sonic ticks.

Customer Reviews

Unbelievable

One of the best Ty Segall-related projects yet. Charlie Moothart (Charlie and the Moonhearts, Ty Segall Band) carries this album with his scorching guitar solos and unbelievable playing, with Ty handling vocals and drums, the latter of which sounds fantastic here. Roland Cosio (Epsilons, Charlie and the Moonhearts) closes out the trio with some really tight bass-playing. The three meld perfectly and make something top-notch, easily capable of blowing your face off in a single song.

Can't Wait!!!

I'm going to see these guys live in a few weeks and I simply cannot wait to see this band. I already own a couple of their 7" singles and love everything Fuzz has put out so far.

Watch out for the Fuzz!

I just found this band, listened to some of there new stuff, and it sounds like classic rock from the early 70s. Good stuff, not to many bands like this anymore, but this sound of music seems to be coming back love it!

Biography

Formed: 2011 in San Francisco , CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

As if he didn't already have enough going on, in 2011 prolific San Francisco garage rocker/songwriter Ty Segall began side project Fuzz with his sometimes bandmember Charles Moothart. Living up to their name, Fuzz took influence from heavy, caustic, fuzz pedal-worshiping '60s proto-metal and psychedelic acts like the Groundhogs, Jimi Hendrix, and Blue Cheer. The band began as a duo with Moothart on vocals and guitar and Segall on drums and vocals, eventually expanding to add longtime friend Roland...
