DOWNLOAD: Fuzz - This Time I Got a Reason (MP3)

Ty Segall @ The Well, September 2012 (more by Gabi Porter)
Ty Segall

Not busy enough, apparently, releasing 800 records a year under his own name, Ty Segall has formed a new outfit, Fuzz, with Charlie Moonheart who has played in his live band for a while (they were also both in Epsilons). Here, Ty sings but is on drums and like their name implies, this is the kind of thick and heavy rock that descended straight from Hendrix.

The band's debut single came out, covertly, a couple weeks ago on Trouble in Mind (with no mention of the band members) and sold out its initial green vinyl pressing. Another pressing on black wax is due soon. You can download the A-side, "This Time I Got a Reason," at the top of this post and stream both sides below. You can also watch video of the band (which includes a third member on bass) doing "This Time I Got a Reason" at a recent show in L.A. Fuzz's only other upcoming dates are both in the Bay Area: February 28 at The Knockout in San Francisco and Go! Records in Oakland on March 1. Both shows are with Austin's OBN III's.

Meanwhile, In the Red is resissuing a couple hard-to-find Ty Segall records: the only release from his surf rock band The Traditional Fools, and Reverse Shark Attack, the 2009 LP he released with frequent colaborator (and bandmate) Mikal Cronin. Those will both be out January 22. Meanwhile, as discussed Ty is going on a tour which hits NYC on February 1 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

All Ty Segall live dates are listed below, along with Fuzz live video and streams.

A generic name that has probably been used before...the genius of Ty Segall in a nutshell

Fucking hate Webster hall. He's gotta play somewhere else in NY as well, right?

This dude needs to SLOW DOWN. I love him, and when he's good, he's GREAT - but his quality control is starting to get lost in the rush.

How many fucking Ty Segalls are there?

Posted by Anonymous | January 3, 2013 1:10 PM

Maybe he'll do another DBA show like in September. That was great.

You might be a pussy if you complain about the number of great records being put out.

I don't think he sleeps.

Ty is drumming- Charles on guitar of course and I apologize for not knowing the name of the bass player :( - Ty is a pretty crazy ass drummer, kind of all over the place like a manic Keith Moon and I like that about his drumming-- plus the guy can sing at the same time (some drummers find that difficult)- such an awesome sound!!!
