I would, to be safe John

Latest album is out now

So having seen the Chups 3 times now somcentheir show at Alex’s I am evolving an appreciation for what Oleg and the band is doing. There is a lot going on in his playing in particular with voicing and variety of attack producing an extreme dynamic range articulating phrases.

Collage is one of Gitarkin’s commonest techniques going back to Messer fur Frau Müller and with MC he still employs it USMH only the guitar, varying the voice from phrase to phrase. Seems to me this degree of articulation is pretty unique. Calls to mind Dick Dale but is a lot less in-your-face and a lot jazzier and humorous.

Squink Out!

Added show to their schedule.
