People love to predict the demise of the guitar but it just ain’t going to die. Its so stubborn like a communist totalitarian or a potato burnt to the bottom of the pan…there’s nothing quite like the guitar and our appetite for it is far from satisfied. The guitar riff that kicks in part way through ‘So over’ by the Shh definitely has its antecedents (the Buzzcocks spring to mind) as does the grunge sequence that precedes and follows it (most recently Best Coast), but the song still captures the bittersweetness of youthful relationships gone awry. Its a punky, punchy fun. Also there is a video for the new Black Angels song, this band certainly alludes to the 60’s but with such success that they deserve to be alongside The MC5 and The Velvet Underground rather than written off as derivatives, this is pysched out guitar rock at its most compelling.
