BEHOLD – when we introduced this live series we spoke of lightning in a jar – this here’s a thunderstorm. Ty Segall’s new stoner thrashers FUZZ not only totally murdered this set at San Francisco leather-daddy hangout The SF Eagle, but it was Ty’s birthday and he blew out his birthday cake candles mid song, didn’t miss a beat, and that moment is forever etched into this record (we took a photo too). The place was insanely packed and they sound like the agile wolf-men they are up close and personal – Ty, mic wailing through a guitar amp and dominating drums like it’s the easiest thing in the world, Charlie – guitar set to Hendrix-meets-Hawkwind melter-mode, and Roland keeping his bass firmly lodged in the groove – the jams are thick and wooly, we got some great photos of the night – man, this was one to remember and we’re super excited we captured such a freakishly good performance. As always, captured hot to tape and mixed and massaged by our crack team of speaker-freakers (Chris Woodhouse, Eric Bauer, Bob Marshall, and John Dwyer) and shot to nicely grainy (real) film by Brian Pritchard. Out on Castle Face Records December 3rd.
