Fuzz – the nacent trio featuring Ty Segall (drums, vocals) and his former Epsilons bandmates Charles Mootheart (guitar) and Roland Cosio (bass) – is playing yet another Bay Area gig tonight, as they continue to gain momentum just a few short months after their first release, January’s “This Time I Got a Reason” b/w “Fuzz’s Fourth Dream” 7-inch. This time, these purveyors of sludgy, fuzzed out psychedelic blues metal are coming to Rickshaw Stop, supported by Wooden Indian Burial Ground, The Spyrals, and Mane.
Last week, Segall and company put out a second 7-inch, “Sleigh Ride” b/w “You Won’t See Me”, on L.A.-based label In The Red, which is another dose of Sabbath and Blue Cheer-influenced heaviness. Copies through the label’s website are already sold out, but as of Saturday, there were still a couple left at Amoeba on Haight, so hurry on down if you want to own this limited edition piece of wax. The record is also available for streaming on Spotify or digital purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
In The Red’s owner Larry Hardy recently told Spin that Fuzz are heading into the studio in May with engineer Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall Band, Thee Oh Sees, Wild Flag) to record their debut LP for his label. With that full-length on the horizon, it shouldn’t be long before Fuzz graduates to playing bigger venues than Rickshaw, so be sure to check them out tonight while you still have a chance to see them up close and personal.
