“When Nels Cline and Fred Frith played their first public duet it didn’t always sound like guitar music. It sounded, at times, like a sanitation truck’s trash compactor, like a collapsing carillon, like a slowed down train wreck. That’s the beauty of the Alternative Guitar festival…which features guitarists who don’t just pick and strum.”

- Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Nels Cline and Fred Frith: 01-18-14 SubCulture (2014 The Alternative Guitar Summit)
