Aurélien Perreira,Igor Omodei,Jérôme Colombelli: Uneven Structure - 8 Full EP Stream


Re-worked, re-recorded, re-packaged and presented as one 24 minute long track, in eight movements.

"8, as a collective piece is something we love to play live but the way we do now is quite different from the 2009 EP. So we decided to release this altered version by going back to the drawing board, reworking it, taking advantage of the lineup consolidation and technical progress we've been through since the original was out. This is a thank you to our fans for being so supportive and believing in us, and we really hope they will enjoy what we've done with it. Whilst they enjoy this, we're busy in our batcave, working on our second album. We want to get that exactly right as it's a concept album, the technical aspect is more engaging than on Februus and we're leaving more room for experimentation which means our writing spectrum is broad as hell." - Iggy

For HD video lessons with me go to

Jamming with my amazing Fibenare TQ Signature Basic Jazz guitar. I truly think that the chaps at Fibenare make some of the best sounding, playing and looking guitars in the world. This is my signature basic jazz, single cut guitar with chambered mahogany body, flame maple top, rosewood neck and fretboard with flame maple binding and TQ inlay. The pickups are hand wound by Fibenare and are a signature set they designed for me with a coil tap in all three positions and independant tone controls.

Fred Brum: X Machina the secret of Polish Power

As promised, here's the all Polish gear video, featuring my track Machina (it'll be released with my new album Transcendence in October). Drums by the absolutely fantastic Kevin Talley - thanks for everything, bro!

I've used my 2 Blackats Doublekats (Feral and Leon) and my Skervesen Swan, straight into the PuffMejster Screaminator, which goes straight into the Taurus Amps Stomp Head 4 High Gain amp and from there to the interface via the speaker sim. I can't thank the brands involved enough for working with me and helping me take this project forward! :)

The Screaminator was used as a boost for the rhythm and main lead parts, whereas the melodies and clean tones were recorded without a boost. Gain was set low on the SH4 for the rhythm / tapping parts (around 4) as it does have a LOT of gain on tap, and the bridge section has stacked clean and mild crunch dialed on the clean channel.

Full specs for the guitars are available if you want them, but they ended up taking up SO MUCH space here I couldn't post them without turning this into a damn testament!

Nelson Coelho,Jorge Pescara: Dialeto international debut from MoonJune!

Dear Friends in Music, MoonJune is announcing its new cd release.

DIALETO (pronounce DEE-AH-LEH-TO) comes from São Paulo, Brazil. The Last Tribe is a "take no prisoners" progressive rock steamroller. From the opening chords, guitarist Nelson Coelho gives clear evidence that the band is ready to tread over new ground – and fully prepared to take it by force!

DIALETO's long-overdue international debut (and their third studio album, following Will Exist Forever from 1991, and Chromatic Freedom from 2010 - both albums feature the former bass player Andrei Ivanovic), shatters the power trio template, visiting styles and textures that could have been just as at home forty years ago as they are today, while remaining undeniably contemporary and accessible. Quirky, unpredictable and overflowing with power and energy, the trio rips through an original set of barn-burners that defy categorization, but are fresh, compelling and masterfully delivered.

The band is as tight as it is explosive – never allowing the listener to get comfortable in one spot for too long, before catapulting them into their next frenzied foray. They deliver the sonic goods in an enthralling, cohesive package. Coelho's grandiose guitar work is always firmly at the forefront: the music guided confidently by a seasoned player possessed of intrinsic melodic sensibilities, but unafraid to follow those senses along paths previously untread. His tones are monstrous; his playing is flawless, instinctive and full of passion and fire.

The Last Tribe conjures images of what some of progressive rock's most vaunted acts might have achieved, had they been as daring and self-assured. Moments of sheer creative brilliance abound on this fantastic outing, DIALETO's first offering for MoonJune Records.

This is a scorching effort that will win over fans with its rare combination of power, grace, ambition and spontaneity, and showcases the brilliant Nelson Coelho as one of progressive music's most vital new voices on guitar coming from Latin America. Crank up this album and prepare to be blown away!!

The Last Tribe's DIALETO is musically spoken by: NELSON COELHO guitars; JORGE PESCARA touch guitars; MIGUEL ÁNGEL drums.

News: Backbeat Books Publishes The Ibanez Electric Guitar Book

Backbeat Books Publishes The Ibanez Electric Guitar Book

A Complete History of Ibanez Electric Guitars

Montclair, NJ (May 28, 2013)
 – Ibanez is arguably the most important Japanese guitar brand, and this new book tells the story of its electric guitars, tracking the fortunes of this impressive brand from its origins to today. The reader is hooked after first paragraph: “How on earth were they going to sell all these mad-looking guitars? Would they prompt Ibanez’s final plunge into guitar-making oblivion?” We all know the story has a different ending, and Tony Bacon tells it in a fascinating and captivating fashion.

The Ibanez Electric Guitar Book
 leads us from the early years, through the decades and on to today, from the first cheap and basic models, to the copies of leading Gibson instruments, such as the Les Pauls, SGs, and Explorers, to Steve Vai’s impressive and spectacular JEM signature models in the late ‘80s, and on to the international success of Ibanez original designs. Exclusive interviews with Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, George Benson, Mick Thomson, and others illustrate Ibanez’s leading role among guitarists of many styles, from metal to pop to jazz and alternative rock.  The book hinges on the game-changing development of Vai’s JEM model and its important related design, the RG, and explains the intriguing ups and downs in the history of this great modern guitar brand. 

The Ibanez Electric Guitar Book 
is a veritable treasure: a thoroughly researched story, exclusive interviews with some of the best guitar players of our time, and a useful reference section detailing production years and specifications of all Ibanez’s electric models. The amazing gallery showing virtually every Ibanez model ever made, as well as vintage posters and pictures of famous players makes this book a must-have for any guitar enthusiast.
