Friday's Playlist: Guitar Freak-Outs

This Friday's Playlist will test your patience. It's more like an endurance test. It's not exactly Metal Machine Music or Arc but there's some weird, far-out, dissonant shit in there.

It'll come as no surprise that Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew make several appearances in our playlist, whether with King Crimson, Talking Heads, Brian Eno or David Bowie... Jeff Beck is of course duly represented with the Yarbirds, after all he is the originator of the freak-out rock guitar. And the playlist starts with one of my favourite piece ever, Robert Quine's insane, whacked-out, nasty, noisy solo on Lou Reed's Waves of Fear.

I had a great time compiling this one, I hope you enjoy it. Don't hesitate to share and comment. What other tunes would you have added to this playlist?
