After suffering a stroke late last year and undergoing heart surgery in January, professional deep digger Nardwuar the Human Serviette has returned. His first interview back, uploaded today, features garage rock superstar Ty Segall at The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver.
And Segall, it turns out, is sort of the perfect Nardwuar interviewee. Record collector rock. An album connected to each of his life experiences. Lots to flip through.
Nardwuar digs up dirt on Segall's embarrassing high school bands and showers him with expertly selected garage, surf, and punk rock paraphernalia. It even scratches our CanCon quota with shoutouts to Toronto label Telephone Explosion and uncle Neil.
But, as great as it is an interview with Ty Segall, there's something so satisfying about hearing "Keep on rockin' in the free world
"doot doola doot do..." delivered by the man himself (with all due respect to Kyle Mooney). All is right in the world again.
Happy to have you back, Nardwuar!
