Ty Segall & Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt) form Wasted Shirt, share track from debut LP
Ty Segall and Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale have formed a new duo known as Wasted Shirt. Ty plays guitar, bass and sings; Brian plays drums. Their debut album, Fungus II, will be out February 28 via Famous Class and they got Henry Rollins to write their bio:
Ty’s 2019 album, First Taste, and the new Lighting Bolt album, Sonic Citadel, are easily some of the best material either entity has ever released so if these two happened to find themselves in the same recording studio, a fan just might entertain elevated expectation levels. In fact, some might actually show signs of enthusiasm, even excitement at the fact that from July 5 -13, 2018, in the air-conditioning free environs of Ty’s home studio, the duo, eventually calling themselves Wasted Shirt, wrecked the joint as thoroughly as you hoped they would.
The album is exploding euphoria from start to finish. The more you play it, the better it kabongs you upside your head. Hectic doesn’t even begin to describe it. Brian and Ty, two mere particles in the grand scheme, collide at high speed, the technicians dive for cover, the reaction is recorded. Mutation is achieved. This is Freedom Rock. Turn up the volume. Hasten your emancipation. Sonic joy awaits.
The first single from the album is “Double the Dream” which sounds pretty much like you’d expect something from Ty Segall and Chippendale: wild drumming, wild guitars, wild everything. It comes with a very cool stop-motion animated video, made by Somer Stampley, and you can watch that below.
