Alectro :: School Of Desire


Alectro-coverAlectro is het New Yorkse duo Jeff Eyrich en Steve Kirkman. Op hun debuut School Of Desire vieren ze hun liefde voor surfgitaren, spaghetti-westerns, Mexicana en twang bot. Resultaat is een uitbundig feest voor liefhebbers van Ennio Morricone, Duane Eddy, Quentin Tarantino en Calexico. Coole eigen nummers en twee covers: Tobacco Road en Woody Guthrie’s Hard Travelin’. Prachtmuziek.

A new project, new music ALECTRO. Who/what is ALECTRO? Jeff Eyrich and Steve Kirkman, musical pardners and soul brothers (in the soulful sense) are ALECTRO. Jeff and Steve are music vets, musician-producers, session men and fellow sidemen on lots of other people’s gigs. Both share a passion for surf guitars, the spaghetti-western soundtracks of Ennio Morricone, Duane Eddy twang, old noisy amplifiers, tube distortion, weird-sounding strange looking guitars, off-brand EFX pedals, antique rhythm boxes, echo-plexes, all influences evident, and tools used in the music that they make.
