Ty Segall is not a man who waits around on the sidelines

8 / 10
He may play garage rock like a total slacker, but Ty Segall is not a man who waits around on the sidelines to release an album. The San Franciscan has already put out a solo record this year (‘Sleeper’) and now he returns as the drummer/vocalist in new band Fuzz, with guitarist Charlie Moothart (an old schoolfriend and regular collaborator) and bassist Roland Cosio. The band only formed in January and consequently their debut fizzes with spontaneity, its sinuous riffs and Sabbath-indebted rhythm section playing at a delirious punk-rock speed, frolicking around in the dirgey sonic sludge like piglets in mud. A rush job, perhaps, but it’s still the sound of three guys having the time of their lives.
