Citric acid rock - Page 2

No Edsels in Ty Segall's garage — if life gives you Lemons, turn up the volume

"But in a clean way."

As if to incite hip-hop beef, Spin's enthusiastic review of Lemons warns Jay Reatard to look out, calling Segall's garage rock "scuzzier." Just for kicks, I jump on the beef-wagon and ask Segall who would win if he and Reatard had a fist fight. "I'm a total wuss. I'd probably just sit there and let him punch me," he says, adding, "I actually met him at a party. He was pretty cool." So much for placing your bets. It appears Segall's a peaceful soul, and that a single encounter at a keg quelled any potential garage rocker-on-garage rocker crime.
