Kung Fu Necktie, Oct. 11 - FUZZ (Preview)
Perhaps the only thing more profound about the early career of San Francisco garage phenom Ty Segall's actual quality or work, is the sheer will he pushes for more.
As a solo artist, the 26-year-old Segall has released eight studio albums since 2008's Horn The Unicorn, along with exclusive 7" singles and cover tracks, separate EPs, work alongside acts like Mikal Cronin and White Fence, and as a member of other bands, including tonight's Kung Fu Necktie headliners FUZZ.
With any familiarity to Segall's previous work, FUZZ might not be too much of a leap - even considering Segall usually sits on the drums while longtime friends Charles Moothart and Roland Cosio sit upfront. The drowning, prodding sludge rock courses on full through the band's self-titled debut LP, which premiered just a few days back courtesy of Chicago's In The Red.
Moothart admitted in a recent interview with SPIN that the two have flirted with the idea for a while, even back in high school, but never considered actually taking it to the studio. "It's fate or something now," he says. "After the last two years going super-gnarly on music things, we thought, 'We just want to have fuckin' fun with music again.'"
Unfortunately, the wave of hype seems to have caught up, and tonight's Kung Fu Necktie show in Philadelphia, featuring CCR Headcleaner and Big No, is already sold out. For the lucky ones, get a preview of tonight's event below.
