ELLIOTT SHARP PRESENTS I Never Metaguitar 6
Klanggalerie are happy to contionue a series of outstanding guitar music that was started by Clean Feed. "In these sick times, there must be a 6th volume of this on-going compilation covering "the parallel realities of contemporary guitarism". Our latest collection runs from A to Z with guitar pieces reflecting the sheer inventiveness and fabulous sonic visions inspired by this instrument of myriad manifestations. The cast of characters ranges from the "legendary" to the "obscure" but all are wonderfully committed players with one foot in the future and one in the past, a formula that puts one’s ass directly in THE NOW."

I Never Metaguitar 6 is proof positive that there are still players pushing the edges/ limits of the humble guitar. And for the most part, this is a varied and consistent compilation, and I do hope there are more planned in this series, and this a defiantly made me keen to check out the early discs in the series.
