Having played guitar with the likes of Iggy Pop, Arno and Alain Bashung, to name but a few, Geoffrey Burton's guitar wizardry is set firm in his love for minimalism, fragmented chords, and off-kilter melodies.
On 'Me Ta Podia' (Greek for By Foot), Burton explores his instrument and connects it to his inner world, easily managing to surpass merely showing off skills. Burton creates an atmosphere that is uniquely his own, at times making his guitar sound like anything but a guitar.Save for two tracks, 'Kuhlmannlaan 8" and 'Bababachable', 'Me Ta podia' was recorded live without any overdubs. This way of working is becoming a staple in the Gong Ear label philosophy, steering their artists towards live in-studio recordings that capture the magic of the moment.
With the sleeve designed by Burton's wife Sarah Yu Zeebroek and typography by Gert Dooreman, Burton is set and ready to showcase his own music, under his own name, for the very first time.
