The Aristocrats … Get this album now!


The Aristocrats are guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller, and drummer Marco Minnemann .  This disc has been in heavy rotation in my car and on Spotify at work.  This is already turning out to be one of my favorite albums this year and probably the best instrumental I have heard in a long, long time.  The cats are super talented, have a great command of their tools and can play their asses off!  The music is tight, technical but never boring.  Remember Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani (Surfing with the alien)?  Those were great great discs and this debut from this trio is just as good if not better.  Creative and inspiring, it has a great rock sound with jazzy undertones with incredible guitar work!  My friend Adam has taken drum lessons from Marco and turned me on to this album.  What a treat!  Run out and buy this NOW!

With tracks like Sweaty Knockers, I want a Parrot, See You Next Tuesday, and Blue Fuckers – you know these guys have the right ‘tude.  Can’t wait to see them in on tour early in 2012 @ one or more of these dates …
