Guapo Obscure Knowledge on LP

Celebrating 20 years in the game, the much-admired instrumental, experimental rock band Guapo issue Obscure Knowledge, their explosive new album and tenth overall. 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) and 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. Smith explains: "The title of the piece of music and album is derived from the psychoactive rituals of various Native American people who are said to 'tap into obscure knowledge' when performing certain rituals and rites of passage."

"Guapo take classic prog tropes and revivify them...brazenly and gloriously, it brandishes all the hallmarks of golden-era prog rock, but given a steroid boost and stripped of ego." – The Quietus
