Rip up the rule­book

EMMA RUTH RUN­DLE iden­ti­fies the cre­ative risk-tak­ers that have in­flu­enced her wide and var­ied ca­reer…

Kerrang! (UK) - - The Inside Track -

MELVINS

“Do­ing an acous­tic tour with King Buzzo [Melvins front­man Buzz Os­borne] had a huge in­flu­ence on my solo ca­reer. I was like, ‘ This shatters the whole per­cep­tion of the singer­song­writer.’”

SMASH­ING PUMP­KINS

“Si­amese Dream was the be­gin­ning of my jour­ney in rock gui­tar and it’s still an al­bum I lis­ten to. That gui­tar solo in Soma is just it for me. I had my first elec­tric gui­tar at 12 and I would try to play along to that al­bum, not know­ing any­thing.”

PET

“This band com­bine gen­res in a way I ad­mire. The gui­tarist Tyler Bates is in Mar­i­lyn Man­son, and bassist Juan Alderete has worked with Man­son and The Mars Volta, but Pet’s self-ti­tled de­but was a rev­e­la­tion. I’ll never un­der­stand how it has re­mained so ob­scure.”

MONO

“My ini­ti­a­tion into the world of post-rock. The lack of vo­cals felt like a re­lief, and the dy­nam­ics and tex­tures opened up a whole ap­proach to the gui­tar and song­writ­ing for me.”
