Guitar is Dead
Guitar is Dead
Psych Rock, Punk, Experimental Jazz, Art Rock from New Orleans LA

Guitarist Tristan Gianola (Wayne Horvitz, Mike Dillon) leads his trio GUITAR IS DEAD in energetic performances of his own breed of shredding loud-jazz, punk, metal and heavy rock. Described as “flagrantly virtuosic” (Dave Segal, The Stranger), Gianola wields his guitar with the energy of a young rock n’ roller who just picked up their first axe…and is ready to smash it into pieces. His musical instincts are embellished with unpredictable imagination as an improviser, composer and band leader. Backed by Moses Eder (drums) and Maxwell Boecker (bass), Gianola pushes himself to the edge of his musicianship, risking admirable precision for raw intensity. Guiding him are the influential guitar stylings of John Mclaughlin, Sonny Sharrok, Marc Ribot, Even Hermansen, Bill Frisell, Van Halen, Frank Zappa and many more.
