Funny how things happen.
I know this guy from when I worked for the stock exchange and this guy was a lawyer at an investment bank developing new derivative products. Both of us were a bit square peg round hole. Anyway, we had a common interest in music and kept in touch. He then decided to learn how to make guitars as in luthier stuff and ,from what I can tell, has proved a dab hand. Anyway,he was given some online guitar lessons wit the esteemed MWP, he of the jingly jangly Rickenbacker signature sound of the Church. They got on well and ended up collaborating, online, on a few choons for an EP under the moniker Arktik Lake.
Fast forward to this year Marty and Olivia have flown back to Oz to record a full album with my mate securing access to a bunch of vintage guitars. I’ve heard /seen footage of some of his soloing and its lovely. Their new record, according to my mate, says that they are stretching out to let MWP do what he does best. My mate says MWP reckons the playing is some of his best in ages. Sounds promising.
Meanwhile my mate lawyer, investment banker, tax expert is living the dream.As I said to him, it beats drafting warrant issue documents.
