Lots of harmonica players use effects nowadays. My intent on this record was not just to make new sounds with harmonicas, but to put the harmonica into a range of new roles in the band (as well as a couple of more traditional ones, like lead). My intention was literally to create a modern blues harmonica band. Blues is traditional music, and there are plenty of traditional harmonica stylings on display too, surrounded by heavy electric breathing in a variety of colors.
Like it or hate it, I guarantee that you’ve never heard the likes of it before. So check it out.
