guitar rock

I’ve never listened to guitar tock, really. To me, it was just an accident that we happened to have a guitarist in the Sugarcubes ; our style wasn’t planned. What’s always turned me on - since I was little - is jazzy and funky and soulful things, as opposed to rock & roll things. Igor Stravinsky is a big blast from the past that I like ; also Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry - those things were free, experimental, avant-garde.
