Fuzz – Fuzz


Fuzz – Fuzz
Konkurrent / In The Red / Trouble in Mind – 2013
Rock, Hard, Psych, Stoner
Rated: *****

We travel back in time towards the age of 1969. Or perhaps 1968 when the fuzz and heavy psychedelic waves sounded this great. That perfect age and the perfect time of the year, when Summertime heralded that massive sound from the boys from Blue Cheer. But we’re talking about Fuzz here. The San Francisco garagedelic threesome that Ty Segall founded early this very year. This time around the man puts his arse on the drum stool and handed over the guitar to Charlie Moothart, who ain’t no fool. Who has an amazing color range in his fingers and is able to whirl your mind with intense solos that make you dream of that kandy-kolored-dancing-girl. This is high-energy hard garage rock and heavy psych that has a stoner edge thanks to the impressive basswork by Roland Casio and his heavy bop and bump. And when we hear this kind of love for the heavy stuff from monsieur Segall we hope to hear more of this and less of something like the Sleeper album; so we can dance around like crazy and do that insane foot stomp. (By the way, Sleeper was also damn good.) But Fuzz holds you captive, hostage and demands full attention like some demented Wizz. There’s no escaping this…
