Fuzz is Ty Segall (drums / vocals), Charlie Moothart (guitar / vocals)
and Roland Cosio (bass). They’re heavy rock lifers—three Californiabred
dudes who have been refining their riffs and getting weird together
since high school (which wasn’t that long ago, actually).
If you are not already aware of Segall, well, what’s up? He’s one of garage rock’s most prolific sons. He said he was going to take it easy
this year, but by the time you finish reading this, the onesheet for his next
record will have already arrived in your inbox. Moothart plays guitar in
The Ty Segall Band and was also a member of The Moonhearts, which
included Cosio on guitar. Way back in the early ’00s, all three played in
the Epsilons.
Fuzz was formed a couple years ago as a collaboration between Segall
and Moothart, but only recently did the pair have sufficient time to guide
the band out of side-project limbo and into a recording studio. Since then,
they have released two singles, “This Time I Got a Reason” (Trouble In
Mind) and “Sleigh Ride” (In The Red). Around the time of the latter,
Cosio joined on bass.
They are not dabblers or dilettantes. Fuzz flipped through used bins,
hard drives and record collections of the world, seeking out the finest
weirdo cuts. The band’s self-titled debut LP, which was recorded by Chris
Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, The Intelligence), dives deep, drawing inspiration
from the more esoteric reaches of heavy metal pre-history. There
are Sabbath and Hendrix nods, obviously, but on “Sleigh Bells” you might
also catch a whiff of UK progressive blues business like The Groundhogs,
particularly when the song quits its 10/4-time intro and reboots into fullbore
choogle. Maybe you’ll even glimpse the ghost of Australian guitar
legend / sharpie guru Lobby Lloyde sniffing around “Raise.”
The mood is not light. The songs project a state of perpetual paranoia
and eroding mental health. And as it should be, you know? It’s a record
for the burners.
