    For the past couple of years (and albums) i have contributed guitar parts to a band that i love back in the UK though i record my parts here in Chicago.
    Slunq are a curious blend of industrial punk and melacholic bizarreness that draw influence from the mathematical compositions of Philip Glass and the thumping energy of Killing Joke, the wit and curiosity of The Cardiacs and the menace of Nine Inch Nails. We are all rooted in British first wave punk and have known eachother since the seventies.
    Anyhow they just released an instrumentalalbum and i play on tracks 1,5,6 and 10.
    Heres a link to my favourite. You can hear my 6130 Roundup most clearly entering at 40seconds and at 2.08, but its wandering in and out of the mix throughout.
    Its not going to win over the Chet fanatics, but its what i do best. Id love to get some Gretschtalk perspectives.

    I like it. Very cinematic, like it should be the score to an action sequence in a stylish vampire action flick or the credits of an edgy David Fincher movie. Hopefully there's not a wrong way to take that, but if so I didn't mean it that way ;)

    Nothing wrong with reminding you of edgy films! Marvellous. Another huge influence is John Barry whose 60s filmscores and orchestral arrangements are both beautiful and sinister. An edgy movie soundtrack would be a dream come true for Slunq
