A couple of weeks ago Ty Segall released his new self-titled album (his second one to date) and recently he brought it to ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’.
To say that his performance of ‘Break A Guitar’ was something special would be a little bit of an understatement. Not only did he completely shred and mesmerise everyone with his guitar skills, but his stage attire was epic too. He appeared wearing a fringed cowboy suit and a cape (yes, a cape!) which had an upside cross, flowers and silhouettes of naked ladies on it. In a nutshell, he nailed it.
But the question on everyone’s lips is: did Ty actually break a guitar? No, he didn’t, but at the speed he plays he’ll probably end up breaking one soon.

An album steeped in killer rhythms.
He’ll be playing albums in full.
It’s not Ty’s version of the song - it’s him exploring the collective psyche of each track and re-assembling them.
There’s much to savour here, and plenty to pass on as well.
