The Electric Switch-Over

Ever since I bought an acoustic guitar equipped with electronic pickups and EQ system plus a handy built in tuner back in 2007 most of my electric guitars started collecting dusts. After my unfruitful pertinacious resistance to be expelled by my former group (which led to disbandment – what a big relief from inauthenticity – to be part of them is now death by association), I started writing songs to perfectly pair with my acoustic guitar. A real intent to go back to minimalistic indie stylings which can now be heard in Pocket Guide To The Otherworld.

This move has received some negative impression since most of the people who are familiar with my performances still prefer the weight of an electric guitar resting over my shoulders. It can be compared to Dylan on a very tiny level. Nevertheless i enjoyed the difference it made cause I feel like I’m really embarking on a new career.

Things are bound to change and when it did started to bore me I finally decided to reintroduce the electric guitar in our set. And what can i say… I effing miss it! Below are two recent video clips i stumbled on youtube. Thanks to Edszy for uploading.

That’s Entertainment – The Camerawalls (Jam Musicfest – May 2009)

The last one is a bonus vid and a favorite of mine from The Jam which was first introduced to me by Morrissey in his own slow and amazing acoustic version. Incidentally, The POP Shoppe! is hosting a tribute night for Paul Weller on June 18th and The Camerawalls will be performing more great songs from The Jam. You can check out the poster under the Events tab or click  Here.

An opportune time to hold the electric guitar once more against my heart… and probably with another record. Enjoy the videos and hope to see your endearing smiles during gigs. 🙂
