TOMASZ GUIDDO & NIROSTA STEEL - GO BACK EP (COMPOST) (25/01)

What we gonna do right here is “Go Back”, waaaaay back. Tomasz Guiddo’s latest doesn’t simply remind us of vintage Arthur Russell sounds, primarily because it bares all the hallmarks of Russel’s acclaimed garage sound. Much of this is down to the fact that Guiddo’s ‘Go Back’ samples the guitar playing of Steven Hall aka Nirosta Steel, the guitarist/singer and Russel collaborator who laid it down on some of Russel’s most renowned tracks, including “Is It All Over My Face”, “In The Light Of A Miracle” and “Tell You Today”.
