"I want to do a total glam Stooges-meets-Hawkwind or Sabbath, something like that," said Ty Segall prior to the release of his sixth solo album, "Twins." "I think that would be super fun. I want to throw people off."
Following stints in underground California bands (The Traditional Fools, Epsilons, Party Fowl, Sic Alps and The Perverts) Segall embarked on a Garage Rock solo career. A cassette-only release ("Horn The Unicorn") preceded Segall's self-titled album in '08. Then came a split LP with Black Time and a series of singles. The next year saw "Lemons," which nailed some positive reviews and became a cult hit.
"Melted" and "Goodbye Bread" dropped in '10 and '11, respectively. The latter with "California Commercial" and "You Make The Sun Fry" was seen as Segall's most commercial effort to date.
'12 was an exceptionally busy year. "Hair," a joint album by Segall and White Fence, Tim Presley's solo project, and "Slaughterhouse," by the Ty Segall Band, were released in addition to "Twins." From the latter album, the single "The Hill," featured the vocals of Brigid Dawson, a keyboardist/percussionist known for her "whimsical" harmonies.
Segall started Fuzz in '13. They released two singles and an album before Segall returned to his solo career with "Sleeper," which also arrived in '13.
"Manipulator" arrived the following year.
