gone but not forgotten

This month, we begin on a sombre note. The guitar community has lost far too many luminaries of late, including classical guitar icon Julian Bream, UFO bassist Pete Way, luthier Chris Eccleshall, the legendary Trini Lopez and, of course, Peter Green. Our extensive tribute to Green – a towering figure in electric guitar history, with perhaps the most emotive and expressive playing style of all the great British blues players – begins on p22. Unfortunately, publication schedules dictate that we are unable to delve deeper into the lives and influence of Julian Bream, Pete Way, Chris Eccleshall and Trini Lopez but, in Trini’s case, it might have been very different. Back in January, we were in Palm Springs after the NAMM Show, all set to interview and photograph the International Latin…

QUALITY STREET I enjoyed the article on Denmark Street in the September issue of Guitar Magazine. It brought back some happy memories. Three years ago, we got a cheap return train ticket from York to London and spent a fantastic day on Denmark Street. We visited Andy’s, Wunjo Guitars and others, and were treated with so much respect and enthusiasm by all the guys in the stores we visited. I was ushered into the vintage areas and given so many beautiful classic guitars to try out without any pressure to buy. Everyone seemed interested in my musical life. I felt like a superstar. The highlight of the day was my visit to Macari’s, where young Mr Macari sat my wife and I down, made us a cup of tea and spent the…

Echoing the stadium-ready sounds and dreamy moods of The War On Drugs and The Cure in equal measure, this experienced North Walian four-piece have stumbled upon a brand of glistening guitar-pop and well-honed heartlands rock that is packed with shimmering arpeggiated guitar melodies and lustrous, beautifully crafted rhythms and vocal hooks – all of which has them primed for big things. By way of a bright-blue beginner’s guitar and feeling like Harry Potter at the wand shop, Sophie Ballamy tells us how it all began, one huge Netflix sync at a time. What inspired you to pick up a guitar? “When I was about 13, a few of my friends at school were learning guitar and I just thought it was the coolest thing ever. My Dad is pretty handy on guitar too,…

album spotlight cory wong trail songs: dusk

Renowned for his elastic right hand and compressed Strat tone, funk virtuoso Cory Wong gave his beloved electrics some respite during the lockdown and worked on a long-planned acoustic record instead – or, rather, two. Essentially a double album, Trail Songs: Dusk and Dawn see Wong take up the acoustic with the same fun and fervour as on his full band and Vulfpeck work. Recorded in isolation, Wong received stems and tracks via Dropbox, sent from the likes of Minneapolis and Hong Kong and everywhere in between. “I usually like to make my albums with all of the musicians in the same room because that way we can feed off of each other’s energy and stay in a nice creative flow,” he says. “I sent the demos and scores out to…

this month’s essential tracks for guitar lovers

KATY J PEARSON Fix Me Up Released to coincide with the announcement of her debut album Return, Pearson’s new single Fix Me Up opens with a sprightly Telecaster tone and her exquisite vocals. From here, it transforms into an Americana belter that will perk up even the rainiest of late summer days. THURSTON MOORE Another Day Part of his ongoing series of 20 Galaxie 500 covers to celebrate the forthcoming Record Store Day reissue of the American alt-rock heroes’ live LP Copenhagen, Moore’s latest offering is a stripped-back acoustic version of the dream-pop anthem Another Day. It’s a stark contrast to the original. ELVIS COSTELLO We Are All Cowards Now Coinciding with the announcement of his new LP Hey Clockface, Costello’s new single was cut live on the studio floor, and the whole record recorded in just two…
