Allan Holdsworth: demo of the J. Rockett Audio Designs AH pedal

The gorgeous looking and sounding Allan Holdsworth Signature Overdrive and Boost from Chris and the gang at J. Rockett Audio Designs is a low-gain Overdrive designed to push your amp as well as a comprehensive Boost with 6 tonal variations. You can run the Overdrive and Boost independently or use the Boost to push the Overdrive.

This video simply aims to outline the great functionality of this pedal, something I hope it achieves. My playing skills are limited so it would be pointless to try and rattle off a heap of Holdsworth licks (but, boy, I sure love listening to them!)

This is an extremely useful pedal for anyone wishing to place an all-round 'toneshaper' on their board. Because the Boost has so many available focus points in terms of tone, it can be used to tame, frighten or burn the front-end of most amps. For that reason alone I think it is a great pedal but then there's also the fab Overdrive, another great amp pushing facility and also with its own powerful two-band EQ.

Top effort, guys.

Joe Stump: interviewed by Berklee Groove

Berklee Groove: Congratulations on releasing your new album! What was the writing and recording process for that like?
Joe Stump: I’m always playing, practicing, and composing, so the tracks on the new record were written over a period of many months.  I recorded all the guitars at home this time around. I have a very modest home recording setup but manage to get killer guitar tones so it works out really well. If I’m feeling inspired I can go into my work room, track, and get a bunch done. If one day it’s not happening, I’ll just hang back and not work that day. The keys, bass, and drums were all done in various studios and of course the mixing and mastering as well.
BG: How does the overall sound of Revenge of the Shredlordcompare to your previous releases, or your role in bands such as Raven Lord and HolyHell?
JS: My new record solo-wise is my best to date, but of course just about every artist says that about every new record they make. But every aspect of this record is a step up and then some. The playing, compositions, guitar tones and overall production are all notches above my previous solo efforts. I’ve been at this a long time, so I’m always trying to improve my craft in all areas. It’s very cool when it all comes together. Even though I write tunes for HolyHell and contribute in many other areas, it’s very much a band thing. The Ravenlord bit I’ve just recently got involved with.

Devin Townsend: old out Retinal Circus extravaganza live online - booking details

DEVIN TOWNSEND - sold out Retinal Circus extravaganza live online at

On October 27th, renowned multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and now ringleader, Devin Townsend is gearing up for one of his biggest accomplishments to date: The Retinal Circus. 

Set to take place at London's historic Roundhouse venue, this one-night only event has been sold out for over a year now. Though Devin has partnered with to allow fans across the globe unable to attend this musical sideshow to stream the event live.

Devin describes the Retinal Circus as "a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a 'circus' of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music.

This three hour plus performance will include: 
- A retrospective of Devin Townsends entire career
- Full choir and theatrical cast
- Visual and aural enhancements unlike any show Devin has done to date

Adam Nolly Getgood, Misha Mansoor: Periphery tour bus shot down in flames...

Adam Nolly Getgood

Our bus caught fire early this morning on the motorway. Thankfully everyone is OK and our equipment isn't damaged, so our touring schedule should not be affected. 

There's nothing like sprinting up a motorway embankment through the rain and mud in your boxer shorts to wake you up in the morning!
