Cruel Optimism : Norman Westberg


Norman Westberg came to visit in April this year. We took the days off around his concerts to record some new solo material for him. In the later evenings Norman kindly laid down some incredibly physical guitar playing. His knowledge of how to make amps saturate is beyond compare. His playing was hugely influential across the record. You can hear his Baritone guitar actions prominently on the piece Negative Drone.
