As a guitar player myself, I was skeptical of David Christy Jones’ setup when he arrived at the Troubadour Distillery set. Opting to use a tiny 1×3″ Blackstar amplifier rather than the Vox Ac30 we provided, I thought he was a bit mad.
Needless to say, he knew exactly what he was doing.
Getting a huge sound from a tiny 1×3″ amp, the filthy guitar sound conjures images of the murky Louisiana swamp; also reflected in his vivid lyrics. His growling vocal is nothing short of residential to that area. Think of Samuel L. Jackson in ‘Black Snake Moan’.
The gritty slide guitar line coupled with the drop D chugging is sure to make you grimace and groove at the same time.
You’d be a fool to miss our most eccentric Troubadour Distillery Cork artist to date.
