Psychojet

Contrasting players set to soar above the instrumental masses Instrumental rock is constantly building in popularity, but without lyrics, one of the key differentiators between good and bad instrumentals is whether it tells a story. Songs need a narrative, a sense of direction, purpose and structure. Fortunately, Northern Irish post-rockers Psychojet have one hell of … Continue reading

Andy Fosberry and Sunset Graves

Do-it-all guitarist working beyond the Graveyard Thanks to advances in music technology, more and more guitarists are going it alone: writing, producing, programming and playing all instruments themselves. But few do it better – or do more – than Andy Fosberry, otherwise known as Sunset Graves. His material spans everything from acoustic ballads through electronica … Continue reading

Ryan Bruce (fluff191) and Black Metal Bicycle

Meticulous metal axeman gives gear demos a be-spoke twist Over the past few years, YouTube gear demos have become a bit of a big deal, regularly attracting thousands of views. But, while they’re a fantastic resource, these demos have a tendency to showcase the stifled creativity of the demonstrators – there are only so many … Continue reading

Ian Jones, Jim Deacon and Kutosis

A post-punk guitar-bass relationship from the humblest of beginnings Sometimes, the integration between guitar and bass is so essential that to look at one apart from the whole would only be telling half the story. Such is the case with Cardiff alt-rockers Kutosis and their guitarist/singer Ian Jones and bassist (and occasional axeman) Jim Deacon, … Continue reading

Johnny Marr and The Smiths

The Smiths are reuniting! Yes, this was the news that rocked the music world for a good few hours on 26th April, at least until both Johnny Marr and Mike Joyce denied it. Still, this provides us with the ideal opportunity to look at Johnny Marr’s gear, right? Any excuse, I know. To be honest, … Continue reading

Dan Hawkins, Justin Hawkins and The Darkness

It was the reunion everyone was praying for. Now, rockers extrordinaire The Darkness have been announced as Lady Gaga’s main support act on her forthcoming UK tour. An odd pairing perhaps, but when you consider the band’s propensity for eccentricity and showmanship, it makes perfect sense. Sort of. Of course, an essential part of The … Continue reading

Cameron Johnson and Atma Weapon

An arsenal of gear for an army of styles To put it simply, Cameron Johnson is a guitar-playing chameleon. While he melts faces in metal project Atma Weapon, he also has a master’s degree in Film Scoring and frequently adjusts his playing style, not to mention his gear, to fit the needs of his client. … Continue reading

James Whitehead

So far, EDGG has only featured those gritty, dirty, penny-pinching “songwriting in bands” guitarists. But let us not ignore the session players, who, although playing with the stars of tomorrow, have enough pressures of their own. Sure, they may play less of a hand in composition, but they’re expected to come up with the goods, … Continue reading

Alex Kokawski and Church of Wolves

Church: a place of community, spiritual worship and WOLVES?!? Get ready for a whole new kind of religious education as North Carolina’s finest sledgehammer you in the face with an unholy trinity of groove-laden sludge, heavyweight rhythms and inebriating structures at the hands of Church of Wolves and axe-wielder Alex Kokawski. “I want to punch … Continue reading

Dan Auerbach and The Black Keys

No one band has done more for the blues within mainstream music in the last decade than The Black Keys and that’s partly down to Dan Auerbach’s superb feel and guitar tone. Following the release of last year’s well-received El Camino, the Ohio duo have been announced as headliners for this year’s Coachella festival in … Continue reading
