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...

Faith No More | Jon Hudson | Pedalboard

Faith No More is on the road again, 26 years after their top ten hit ‘Epic’, stormed the radio in a rap/punk melange of half-finished lyrics and adolescent insights.
