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.
