Fuzz is Ty Segall (on drums), Charlie Moothart and Roland Cosio. They're heavy rock lifers - three California-bred dudes who have been refining their riffs and getting weird together since high school. Fuzz was formed a couple of years ago as a collaboration between Segall and Moothart, but only recently did the pair have sufficient time to guide the band out of side-project limbo and into a recording studio. The band's self-titled debut, which was recorded by Chris Woodhouse, dives deep and rawks hard, drawing inspiration from the more esoteric reaches of heavy metal pre-history. The songs project a state of perpetual paranoia and eroding mental health. And as it should be, you know? It's a record for the burners.
