How 'bout some feedback.
The Pretenders - "The Wait"
Jesus and Mary Chain - "Never Understand"
The Who My Generation. Brilliant finale.
The one, the only... Mr. John A. M. F. Frusciante.
All good suggestions so far. But the Dead Boys are my touchstone:
Fugazi - "Arpeggiator"
One of my favorites is actually a video of The Who, performing at the Richfield Coliseum in Richfield, Ohio, in 1975 or 1976. If you've seen the 30 Years Of Maxium R&B video, it's the same show that the version of Dreaming From The Waist that's on that video came from. Anyway, so the song is My Wife, and to kick off his guitar solo, Townshend plays a single note, hoists his Les Paul over his head and just lets it feedback for like a minute. Great, great sound. Check it out:
Jimi Hendrix did some cool feedback stuff too, for instance:
Then there's Steve Stevens on the intro to Billy Idol's Blue Highway:
And then there's Robert Fripp on David Bowie's Heroes:
Cool tune. Nice feedback. I've never touched a mixing board or recorded much music, but my ears tell me this song probably could have been mixed better. The instruments and voices feel glommed together at times when I want them to have a little more separation (not sure how you would separate them, though . . . maybe fiddling with the volume levels). That's just my own complete novice recording ears listening to it. Still a fun song.
That's a good tune .
Starts around 2:10:
That's cool. Kind of sounds like an Ebow.
Except they didn't have Ebows in 1968. You just turned up the amp and moved around until you found the resonant spot.
I imagine the Ebow inventor, after shifting around in front of their amp, thought, "I'm on the road to tinnitus here, there's gotta be a better way . . . "
The classic... Beck AND Page!
