Fuzz is like a deep fat fryer, it makes everything better. Recently there has been a revival of fuzzy tone guitars and heavy riffs to hit the alternative music scene. Ty Segall embodies this new generation of young kids ready to pick up guitars and turn the up the volume to 11! Could Trey Guttierrez aka Way To Go become the new prince of fuzz? Third Outing tells his story.
Who is he?
Trey comes from Laredo Texas where he grew up listening to favourite classic rock bands such as The Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. “You gotta start with the classics don't you”? Trey's first musical experience was at 10 when he started percussion, followed by drums and then guitar at 16. Now at University, he has written the songs of 'Basement Dwellers' EP in his dorm room and has recorded the entire record in a shed in Laredo. Being a massive Ty Segall fan, Way To Go is keeping up with the fuzzy straight forward rock and roll spirit!
What is it?
Way To Go is Trey’s first solo project. His influences are not diverse. He likes Jimi Hendrix blues, Ty Segall’s simplicity and Punk Rock's aggressive fast pace. Trey has recorded everything by himself in a shed, starting with drums for the tempo, then guitars and then bass. The end product symbolises Trey's DIY philosophy and style.
Third Outing’s favourite track is ‘Burn out’. It’s a raw and powerful song which showcases the spirit of Way To Go's musical talent. “The idea was just to write simple enough rock n roll songs. That's all I wanted to do”.
'Basement Dwellers' shows a great deal of promise. This EP is Trey's first attempt of recording and with time, he will master how to record with his own sound and style. Throw in some professional equipment, a sound engineer and a band to record with, then the ideas Trey hears in his head will translate to some inspiring fuzz indeed.
