Nardwuar Serves Ty Segall All of His ‘Gateway Drug’ Records in First Interview Since His Stroke

Your favorite Human Serviette, Canadian personality and interviewer Nardwuar, has recovered mightily from a recent stroke — just in time to interview Ty Segall for a new edition of his show. Los Angeles’ singular garage-rock maelstrom remains unflappable throughout the interview, even when admitting one of his earliest bands was called “Love This” because a record store clerk informed him that, uh, there was already a band with their original name, Love. View the vinyl-heavy video — which shows off Segall’s intimidating knowledge of the music that’s his “gateway drug to everything I enjoy now, or a lot of it” — below. (Watch out especially for Gigi the Throbblehead.)
