During live performances, Segall is currently backed by The Freedom Band, consisting of regular collaborators Mikal Cronin (bass), Charles Moothart (drums), and Emmett Kelly (guitar), playing alongside Ben Boye (piano). His previous backing bands have been the Ty Segall Band, consisting of Cronin (bass), Moothart (guitar), and Emily Rose Epstein (drums), The Muggers, a high concept band formed in 2016 and consisting of Cronin (bass, sax), Kelly (guitar), Kyle Thomas (guitar) and Wand's Cory Hanson (keyboards, guitar) and Evan Burrows (drums). Segall began his recording career as a part-time musician in various underground bands in Orange County and the San Francisco Bay Area, before beginning a solo career in 2008. Segall's first solo release was the cassette Horn The Unicorn released on the Wizard Mountain label (later re-released by HBSP-2X on vinyl record). Around the same time, Wizard Mountain also released a split cassette featuring Segall and the band Superstitions entitled Halfnonagon.
American garage rock musician Ty Segall has released ten studio albums, two live albums, three compilation albums, three extended plays (EPs), nineteen singles, and sixteen music videos. He has also recorded as a member of various other bands. Horn the Unicorn (Original Release) – Cassette (2008; Wizard Mountain). Halfnonagon (split with Superstitions) – Cassette (2008; Wizard Mountain).
Specifically it features the Ty Segall Band, the lineup of Segall, Mikal Cronin, Emily Rose Epstein, and Charles Moothar. Although he’s based in Los Angeles now, Segall came of age in the San Francisco scene, and the performance documented on Live In San Francisco has the feel of an ebullient homecoming. If you’ve seen Segall in concert before, you know it’s going to be one of those life-affirming rock ‘n’ roll ragers that reminds you why this genre was so revolutionary in the first place. Stream the full album below. Live In San Francisco is out 1/26 on Castle Face.
Rowdy crowd, meet stacks of amplifiers - Ty, Charlie, Mikal and Emily came to singe your ears off. There have been live recordings of Ty before of course, but never so crisply and fully realized as this scorching platter of fuzz.

NotesBy now you should know what you’re in for here - an eardrum toasting take to tape of the mighty Ty Segall Band, captured during two nights in San Francisco at the barely-pushing-medium sized venue The Rickshaw Stop. Rowdy crowd, meet stacks of amplifiers - Ty, Charlie, Mikal and Emily came to singe your ears off. There have been live recordings of Ty before of course, but never so crisply and fully realized as this scorching platter of fuzz.
As always - featuring beautiful black and white photos shot to film at the venue by our favorite lensman Brian Pritchard
As always, the tape takes are tweaked and saturated to perfection by our incredible crack team of engineers and knob-goblins
Featuring jams from throughout Mr. Segall’s torrential output of the past few years, including a take of his first single “Feel” off his great new record Manipulator…it’s the next best thing to getting in to the show, which is getting harder and harder with Ty these days…
