A good week – Peter Gabriel concert, and expensive boutique guitar amps

Good week so far:

Karin Fransson

Started off by laying some guitar tracks down for soul/jazz/pop artist Karin Fransson who is deep in recording mode at the moment for her debt album. I will be plaing guitar with her at her album launch in May. Details to follow. Karin has an amazing voice… Top class.



Divided By Thirteen amps

Ben King, the Yardbirds Lead Guitarist gave me a call and cajoled me (yeah right!) into accompanying him to Machinehead in Hitchin to try out these amazing amps (just don’t look at the price tag!) Absolutely incredible 3-d organic vibrant tones came pouring out, and we needed no excuse to crnk up the volume and pound out some Zeppelin riffs on this gorgeous 1962 Lake Placid Blue strat, just like the one Jimmy Page used on “Presence”. Ben loved the JRT 9/15 with its switchable 6V6/EL84 power stage and special edition Celestion G12H30. I was really impressed by the RSA 31, a very classy AC30 variant with none of the associated negative points. Next time we are going to check out the FRT37 properly as we didn’t get a chance to check it out thoroughly (same goes with the Two Rock which had a nice solid tone.)

I must say Ben’s new germanium transistorWilliams Audio Tone Bender fuzz pedal sounded

    incredible

through the JRT 9/15: fat vintage fuzz tones, but tight bass, and no woolliness or harshness.

Peter Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra

My friend shouted me a ticket to Peter Gabriel gig at Hammersmith Apollo last night. (thanks Graham). Coincidentally, Yardbirds bass player Dave was there with his brother, and Spinlords bandmate guitarist Jonny. After sitting in the wrong seats “up in the gods”, we finally saw sense and went to our correct seats in the stalls fo the second half, where the balance between voice and orchestra was much better. I ended up sitting next to a guy that had seen so many classic era concerts, including Rush on the Hemispheres tour >Jealousy barely in check< Peter Gabriel was deliberately self-effacing to draw our attention to the orchestra who were excellent. I found the pace and dynamic a little bit samey through the entire set, but there were some great moments. Great sound and atmospheric lighting.

Tomorrow night – The Yardbirds live at Twickenham Stadium

Really Looking forward to this, an annual event put on by The Eel Pie club.

Juliet Russell “Lazy” video and single launch

Sunday night – 26th March – I will be playing guitar and singing backing vocals.

The Spinlords have a new EP out – http://www.thespinlords.com/
Stay tuned for news about my forthcoming album
