Editorial Reviews

Celebrating 20 years in the game, the much-admired instrumental, experimental rock band Guapo are celebrating by releasing 'Obscure Knowledge', their explosive new album and tenth release!

The group started their life as a heavy bass/drums duo playing post-hardcore, noisy rock, but in the two decades since, they have expanded their instrumentation and their stylistic references to become one of Europe's most highly respected 'muscular and modern' experimental/progressive rock bands.

Centered around founding member and extraordinary drummer David J. Smith, the group on the album also features three additional heavy-weights of British experimental rock: Kavus Torabi-guitar (also of Knifeworld, Cardiacs, Gong), Emmett Elvin-keyboards (also of Chrome Hoof, Knifeworld), James Sedwards-bass (also of Thurston Moore Band, Chrome Hoof)

The album's 43 minute long track is a dynamic, fluid beast that takes the listener on a scenic journey through loud New York minimalism, celestial drones, avant rock, kosmiche-noise, rockin' riffs and way beyond.

Smith, who is also a sculptor as well as drummer, looks after the aesthetic considerations of Guapo and is keen to provide a backstory for their albums. Smith explains: ''The title of the piece of music and album is derived from the psychoactive rituals of various Native American people who are said to 'tap into obscure knowledge' when performing certain rituals and rites of passage.''
