Image<br><br>Amazing guitar on this one. Chad Wackerman plays drums on a couple songs, too.<br><br>Image<br><br>It's not obscure to us, but I thought I'd post it anyway because it is obscure to 99.9% of the world's population (unfortunately  :'().

Image<br><br>The Nels Cline Singers - The Giant Pin (no singing on this one at all, though..  ;D)<br><br>I second the recommendation of Sonny Sharrock's "Ask The Ages". Seems to be out of print now, though (why?).

well it's been named before<br>but out of stage antics like most of what's known as "god guitar players<br>whom the true are a bunch of heavy metal heads"<br><br>besides some of the greatest guitar players, some of whom not even play standup but can blow metalheads away in just one millisecond with just one note,<br>there's the one and great fred frith whom used to play with the guitar on top of a table and work it with all kind of objects to take beautiful sounds out<br>of it,<br><br>from his older works with henry cow and the art bears<br><br>Henry Cow<br>Image<br>Line-up<br> - John Greaves / bass, piano, vocals, Whistle<br>- Chris Cutler / piano, trumpet, drums, vocals, Whistle , Toy instruments<br>- Fred Frith / guitar, piano, violin, keyboards, viola, vocals<br>- Tim Hodgkinson / organ, clarinet, piano, keyboards, saxophones, vocals<br>- Geoff Leigh / clarinet, flute, recorder, saxophones, vocals <br><br>The Art Bears<br>Image<br>Image<br>ART BEARS are a branch of Henry COW and include vocalist extraordinaire Dagmar KRAUSE, Chris CUTLER on percussion, and Fred FRITH on guitar/ violin/keyboards/ etc. They were longtime members of the seminal English radical political avant-garde art rock band Henry COW. Their music is very high level progressive/experimental rock, with shades of ambient and electronic thrown in. Like much RIO-influenced music, it's not so really progressive, as experimental, "rehearsal intensive".<br><br><br>
