The Fuzz Band
After two albums that earned extra cash at gigs, the band decided to leave its garage and enter a studio for its third recording project: III. Joined this time by producer Steve Albini, who helped capture their irreverence on III, they worked closely on this record to bring its unique sound out in all its splendor.
As expected from a group named Fuzz, this record features heavy sound. There are plenty of black metal and classic rock influences from Segall’s childhood that seep into every orifice of the band on this record, from Segall’s thunderous drumming opening track as he sings out “Forward/ Forward/ Forward,” issuing an audible declaration. Fuzz delivers with this intense, gritty album that is sure to please listeners who appreciate the raw, unfiltered power of music.
Charles Moothart’s guitar sound is unmistakably raw and gives this record an audacious edge that distinguishes it from much of today’s musical landscape. Chad Ubovich joins Moothart on bass and Roland Cosio, who both provide the band with an intoxicatingly smooth low-end sound, while Segall brings cartoon menace reminiscent of early Sabbath Ozzy era vocals while his drumming is precise yet loose and potent for maximum pleasure!
Segall’s album II fluctuates between heavy riffs and trippier passages yet still exudes doom, becoming his darkest release to date. For an unexpected treat, Segall included piano music on “Time Collapse 2 / The 7th Terror”, offering listeners something different than his signature fuzz-soaked noise.
The Fuzz Band is an energetic young band making waves both locally and nationally. From performing at venues and colleges to sharing the stage with Grammy award-winning artists such as Alicia Keys, Morris Day, Outkast, Jill Scott, and Tommy Hilfiger at private parties, they have made quite an impression both locally and nationally. First formed as the house band for Virginia’s longest-running open mic series, Fuzzy Wednesday, they have since established themselves on the music scene with five studio projects under their belts!
