Gibson Lifestyle

Our favourite place to find news and cool articles that sometimes we use in our blog


Great New site for gear reviews, online tutorials and more. Very interesting.


A classic website, with lots of artists setups…some not too accurate, apparently, but always a great starting point if you want to know what your favourite guitarist uses.


Guitar sites don’t come bigger than this. Zero care about web design – it’s all about content. The user reviews are always interesting.


Recently, Gibson published a really interesting article about the Liverpool music scene…read it here!

And here’s a list of our favourite new local bands, we hope you’ll enjoy them as well!

1) The Affection (http://www.myspace.com/theaffection)
Look and sound like a signed band. A Harsher, slightly psychedelic The Strokes. Charismatic, cool, got it
all…Gear: Fender Super-Sonic Cab and head, Epiphone Les Paul Special, Fender Stratocaster, Big Muff, MXR Phase 90, Boss DD-3, Epiphone Thunderbird Bass

2)Asbos (http://www.myspace.com/asbos)
Weird, with observational lyrics. Great sound, lots of personality. Gear: Fender Hot Rod Deville, Fender Jazzmaster

3)The Fountains
Very pop, very comercial. Good songs…all very proper.   Gear: Fender Telecaster

4)Indica Ritual (http://www.myspace.com/indicaritual)
Very now, electronic, bright trousers, big local following etc…sound cool.

5)Puzzle (http://www.myspace.com/puzzlepuzzle)
Cute Little band, like a nice Pavament. More 90s US alt-rock than Liverpool…

6)Esa Shields (http://www.myspace.com/esadshields)
Local androginous genius. An “artist”. Very very original. Performs with backing track. Our own Brian Wilson.

7)Friday’s Ghost (http://www.myspace.com/fridaysghost)
Liverpool’s own Interpool. Ace. Dark. Mysterious. Brilliant.

8.) Dirtblonde (http://www.dirtblonde.co.uk)

Liverpool’s answer to Jesus And Mary Chain, via Patti Smith and Sonic Youth. Noisy, dark, destructive. Gear: Fender Blues Junior, Epiphone Les Paul Junior, Epiphone Dot, Epiphone EB-3 Bass, Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde, Electro-Harmonix Memory Man, Double Muff

9) Sex Education (http://www.myspace.com/sexeducationband)

Think New Order, Joy Division, Human League…great songs, always in black. All their gear goes thru a MOTU 828, no amps. Gibson ES-335

10) Jewel Thief (http://www.myspace.com/jewelthiefband)

If they came from the US they’d be the new Kings Of Leon – they play old skool swampy blues rock. Great tunes, great trousers, bluesy and scuzzy. Gear: Gibson SG Special, Rickenbacker Bass, Marshall Amp, no pedals.
