Do you ever go through a period where your need to discover new music is insatiable? Whether it’s streaming the latest album from some highly touted upstarts; walking out of HMV with an armful of sale CDs of bands you’ve been meaning to check out forever or clutching a long sought after slab of vinyl you found in a charity shop, your desire to consume, to hear new sounds, to be blown away by a riff, by a song, by a whole album is all encompassing. Your inability to truly give all the music you obtain the time it deserves is only matched by your need to hear more and more and more…yeah, well it’s been over 20 years for me now, and that feeling doesn’t look like stopping any time soon.
So welcome to Anything With Guitars where the aim is to fill that need for music, whether it’s old, new, recorded or live anything (with guitars) goes. There will hopefully something for everyone, opinions, reviews, lists and loads of great songs. However while this may seem like a site for fans of guitar based music to revel in the songs / bands / albums / genres that we love it’s important that we never lose sight of the fact that this is, in fact, either a cathartic outpouring that is saving me from descending into madness or a just a tragic journal of said descent.
Either way stick around, ‘cos whatever happens the soundtrack will be fucking awesome…
