Return of The Guitar Solo: Ty Segall & White Fence - "Scissor People" (Live @ Room 205)

2 hard-working Garage Rock revivalists hailing from good ol' San Francisco, CA are plotting the triumphant comeback of Rock "N" Roll's long-forgotten elementary "guitar solo." Ty Segall & Tim Presley (White Fence) recorded the bulk of Hair sometime last year. The resulting album is essentially 8 tracks-worth of feedback-drenched, dirty Psych Rock with Segall on drums/rhythm guitar and Presley taking on lead guitar/bass riffs. Hair's first audio sampling, "I Am Not a Game," was just unveiled back on March 27th. Ty Segall's most recent effort [and commercial breakthrough], Goodbye Bread was released last Summer, while White Fence unveiled Family Perfume (Vol. 1) just last week.

Another one of Hair's tracks was unveiled yesterday afternoon: "Scissor People." Recorded live @ Room 205, Ty Segall & White Fence were joined by musicians-friends, Mikal Cronin (bass) and Nick Murray (drums). Man, "Scissor People" is without a doubt a shred-filled Psychedelic jaunt, which runs for nearly 6 minutes-worth of pure Rock "N" Roll! Ty Segall & White Fence are indeed single-handedly bringing the guitar solo back in the worst way. But it's surely "a long way to the top, if you wanna Rock "N" Roll." If you know what's good for yourself, be sure to pick up a copy of Hair on April 24th (Drag City). CAUTION: Mild ear bleeding should be expected and will [probably] ease up within due time! ha
