Built To Spill: Jim Roth Pedalboard

Yesterday I wrote about Built to Spill and the show they played this week here in Missoula. I also did a rundown of Brett Netson’s pedalboard, who was one of the three guitarists on stage that night, churning up the tonal waters that the audience was happily drowning in. On the far side of the stage from Brett was his counterpart Jim Roth, trading licks and effortlessly recreating the songs we have come to love from our Boise...

Built to Spill: Brett Netson’s Pedalboard

Built to Spill rolled into our medium sized town of Missoula earlier this week.

They delivered an impressive performance complete with a driving encore that ended in a 10 minute explosion of swirling guitars amidst a cacophony of...

Along the way, he’s incorporated a tightly-knit crew of revolving, talented...

Analog Alien Gives You Joe Walsh’s Tone

Joe Walsh is not a stranger to success. Throughout his career he’s been a part of five successful rock bands: the Eagles, the James Gang, The Party Boys, Barnstorm and Ringo Starr and his All-Star Band (Hey, we didn’t say he’d been a part of the 5 best named bands). Besides these highlights in his career (his gig with the Eagles landed him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) he has also enjoyed a huge solo career and...

JHS Muffuletta Fuzz

On the first of September, JHS dropped word about their new ‘all-in-one’ Big Muff tribute they are calling the Muffuletta. If you don’t know, a muffuletta is both a type of round Sicilian sesame bread and a popular sandwich originating among Italian immigrants in New Orleans, using said bread. It’s delicious and if you ever have a chance, you should get one. Much like the Muffuletta pedal which is both...
