Alex Hutchings,Guthrie Govan: in my backyard


I just found another band that Alex Hutchings has played for: http://www.myspace.com/backyardUK or http://www.backyard.uk.com/

Backyard - live in Cheltenham


Not as good as my recent videos from Musikmesse which capture Alex's humour and ability to improvise. This is a promo video compilation of Alex Hutchings displaying the ME-70 at Musikmesse:

Alex Hutchings`s Demo performance for ME-70, the latest multi-effects unit from BOSS. A multi-effects unit thats as easy as a stompbox ― thats the beauty of the new ME-70. The friendly, knob-laden design makes tone creation a snap, but with a powerful COSM AMP section derived from the GT-10, the ME-70 takes the EZ effects concept to new heights.

Finally Guthrie Govan & Alex Hutchings play together for the first time on the ROTOSOUND stand at theLondon International Music Show 2009

Marko Oikarinen: human wheel cd released




Trusties plays modern progressive rock with a flavour of heavy metal and world music. Released in June 6th 2009, their latest CD ‘Human Wheel’ offers a 70-minute journey to the centre of humanity, and this is not always a nice trip. The greatness of mankind is seen through the eyes of a test subject, doomed to spin the wheel forever and watch the history repeat itself.

Lead guitarist Marko Oikarinen says:
"Unlike our all-acoustic debut album, this one is chock-full of electric guitar: three-octave quintuplet arpeggios, sensitive dynamic interludes, long 'Testament meets Tribal Tech' solo sections, backwards guitar parts, Zappaesque stuff... It will be great to get to play these songs live!"


Although more focused and band-oriented effort than its predecessor 'We just want to rule the world' (2003), ‘Human Wheel’ still draws its inspiration from a number of diverse genres and artists. The original acoustic trio has expanded into an electric five-piece, which has resulted in a unique mix of prog, metal, world music and fusion jazz. Melodic pyrotechnics get combined with naturally weird rhythms and majestic soundscapes.

But where are all the acoustic guitars, which pretty much defined their sound on their 1997 debut CD 'Growing Smaller'? Their sound may have changed, but high-quality song writing has always been the essence of Trusties, and what the whole thing is about.

The wheel is spinning … don’t lose your head!
