This time we are going to the land down under for some SERIOUS surf and twangs. This Australian power trio presents 17 tracks of surf/spy/guitar noir. "A guitar player whose genre bending technique, taste and eclecticism place him among the world’s great guitarists." (Billy Pinnell, JB Mag Nov 2007)
Ben Rogers was listening, learning and stealing everything he could from Django Reinhardt, Hank B. Marvin, Duane Eddy, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, JJ Cale, and Peter Green. Having now left the primordial ooze, he's ready to unleash his fearful blend of surf/gypsy/tarantino rock solid pulp guitar truth and fiction to the masses. Ben Rogers' Instrumental Asylum is a trio made up of electric guitar, bass and drums and features reverb-drenched guitar music that echoes some of the best work of The Shadows, Ventures and Surfaris, but with an extreme left turn towards the surreal. All done up with an Aussie accent. OUTSTANDING throughout. Highly recommended.
