Technical guitar use and songs about a hench flower in your garden have never been more on point…
All I know is that this guy is either currently living in or is from Blackpool and he’s pretty fucking mad on the old acoustic guitar, my reference here is gonna be pretty weak but it’s that whole guitar drumming technique used by Newton Falkner (and I’m fully aware probably a bajillion other guitarists to a much higher level) but with too much pin point precission. This guy is ridiculous and he has this to say about this here tune…
“This song is about I plant a grew in my 10-feet-square backyard in the Leeds inner city. I put the seeds in a tiny tub, but it grew like a Roald Dahl story until it took over the whole yard, then one day the sun shone extra hard and 100 flowers all went “Pop!”. It was amazing, so I wrote a song for it.”
He also does a mass ton of covers and they’re all siiiiiiiiiiiick.
Yes Jon Gomm.
