The Lillington's: the Wyoming based Italian group for a single date.
Over 20 years experience in defending the flag of punk rocking. The Lillingtons, one of the most respected bands of the Underground scene, will soon return to Italy. Friday, May 3, 2019, the Cordenons Towndi Cordenons (PN) will host the return of the American group to our country for a single date. The history of the Lillingtons began in 1996 with a self-produced pop-punk record, Shit Out of Luck, on which Kody Templeman (vocals and guitar), Zack Rawhauser (guitar), Cory Laurence (bass) and Tim O'Hara as Timmy V (drums) leave out their typically youthful, sentimental turbulences.
In the following years, The Lillingtons continued their journey inspired by groups like The Ramones and Screeching Weasel until they released Death by Television for Lookout Records, which NOFX's Fat Mike called "the best pop-punk record ever". Launching a third record in 2001, The Backchannel Broadcast, the group began to gain fans and make a name for themselves in the subway scene.
Despite some failures and reunions, the 2006 group released The Too Late Show, but the continuity of the project begun ten years earlier is undermined by the many commitments that each member of the group makes themselves. In 2017, ten years after the last record release, the group finally gave birth to Stella Sapiente with Fat Wreck Chords, a highly anticipated album that marks the quartet's return from Wyoming to form, greeted by a renewed crowd of fans ready to move under the stage of the group's electrifying concerts.
The Interzone Stroke Blog: Best Punk Rock Guitarist Dita Santainanti
At the opening of "1969" by Stooges, the wah-wah d' sound of Ron Asheton's guitar is the birth of the lamentation of punkrock. With a jagged solo that marked the beginning of a new period for pop and pop, Ron returns in a new direction that many artists will follow. In the next two LPs Fun House (1970) and Raw Power (1973) Asheton pushes the guitar even harder and into the brutal, fissured, torn and rough mud, precursor of a perfect punkrock which would not come many years later.
Basically, if you missed his burning way of playing guitar, then you're sure until now that you were definitely on another planet. And Ray was more than up to the task: he mixed the elements of the music he loved, surfing, hillbilly, old-time countryside, jazzy, the soundtracks of westerns and even the psychedelic explorations of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barret, he characterized the DKS sounds in a unique style of rough punk, rough punk versus groovy prescendo.
Kristy Wallace Marlana was born in San Bernardino and invented Poison Ivy Rorschach in the mid 70s on the route of the emerging punk scene in New York City. Ivy worked with her husband and bestial frontman and Wildmann Lux Interior to make cramps, and invented a new way to play guitar, with burning riffs and absolutely reckless, flamed with punk and finally a very accurate kept tone that came straight from the 50' rock and roll. What a great way to play guitar!
"Not only on guitar, Ivy is a song writer, arrangeur, producer and occasional singer. With his Greek guitar and his throbbing sounds he has influenced a whole generation of rock/punk and gothic group musicians. The cover of New York Dolls' second full-length record "Too Moo Too Soon" is a big statement for Rock and Pop.
He wears a 1955 Les Paul Special with the typical attitude of those years. He achieved his unmistakable sound of playing the classic guitar, very loud and clean. Born John Anthony Genzale Jr., Johnny Thunders burned on the paths of punk not in one, but in two combined cornerstones of extensive music.
In the early years, Thunder' wore hot clothes and high heels to let go of hell as the top queen of New York dolls in the early 1970s. The fantastically devastating electric blues and trashy solos not only ignited the attack point, but also inspired Kiss, the Sex Pistols and then directly the Guns N' Roses.
After the landing of the Dolls, the front man of the Heartbreakers became Thomas, an equally true hit of punk. The Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten, soul-shattered and hyperkinetic, conquers the climax of the apocalyptic nihilistic punk uprising. Equally important to the sound of the group and the movement they embodied is the speed of Steve Jones' creepy guitar.
When asked in recent years what advice he would give young guitarists, Jones said: "I would tell them to copy me because everything I do is great. It' s an endless story: Four Mookies from Queens wear leather jackets, climb the hellish CBGB stage in central Manhattan, play 25 songs in 25 minutes, and the world still trembles at the influence those 25 minutes had.
What is sometimes overlooked and makes Ramones the punk group par excellence is that the members of the "three primitive chords" represent the absolute culmination of their technical know-how and musical abilities. He invented a relentless style that not only defined the innovative sound of the legendary Ramones, but also the guitar of the punk pop movement in general.
Johnny Ramone, one of the most influential guitarists in the history of guitar, armed with his Mosrite guitar and his friendly surrock, played as fast as his hand could, and found further brilliance in his inability to do so (initially) through a guitar solo. Johnny Ramone was a great guitarist and a great guitarist.
Hey, nobody can drive as fast as Johnny Ramone..... As an electronics expert and workaholic, Black Sabbath fan and lifelong supporter of the Grateful Dead, Greg Ginn first trained tough Black Flag heroes on Hermosa Beach in 1976.
Over time, through several incarnations of the group, Ginn has not only redefined the way you play guitar in punk and write songs, but also the same extreme dynamics of rock. As a dictator, Ginn led Black Flag, but he led by example and always put the group in the forefront of private life.
Then Ginn met front man Henry Rollins and developed a way to play guitar like no other in punk rock. Listening to the Black Flag discography, you feel a virtuosic heavymetal that breaks and spits out every technical rule, that moves in flights of ascending beauty, a witty and wise provocateur who masterfully guides with his instrument every crumb of the unlimited musical complexity of the group that flows through him.
On behalf of the Black Flags, Greg Ginn has set up a punk group itinerary that is still active today. First of all, however, Greg Ginn is one of the greatest guitarists punkrocks have ( still ) produced. The debut on a major for the big nine was in 1982: Under the Big Black Sun and the first reef of "The Hungry Wolf" exploded with one blow!
It is his brand, this powerful attack of his style, which goes back little to Steve Jones and Johnny Ramone, and much more to Link Wray, Eddie Cochran and Western Swing. He was the founder and guitarist of Clash, the most important punk revolution group.
Important for music, style and innovation, but also for their belief that R'n'R and politics can interact and contribute to a change of consciousness. Above all, it's thanks to him that the band's ability to evolve developed quickly from the fateful three chords of early punk to a more sophisticated vision of the music that they first brought to Dubai dubs, reggae, ska, rockabilly, African and Eastern sounds, and even the distant echoes of London discos: a mixture in which Jones' guitar shone.
Without unforgettable solos, he knew how to play a guitar part, and much of the crash music is thanks to Jones. With him, the only punk group to fill the arenas was thelash. The first two albums of Damned, which together with Sex Pistols and Flash form the Holy Trinity of the original Punk, are due to him.
The arsonist, who grew up as a model with Hendrix and Pete Townshend, reinvented the electric guitar, later in the proto-Goth super group The Lords Of The New Church with the late Stiv Bators, then with the Brian James Gang. She was called the "guitar that takes no prisoners" and spilled liters of blood on my turntable.
Don't forget Pat Smear, with the legendary seeds and before you play that horrible guitar hop from Foo Fighters; Bob Mould from Husker Du; Jake Burns from Stiff Little Fingers and even Captain Sensible, born bassist in the early Damned and then passed on to the electricians with excellent results.....
