Joan Armatrading's Favourite Guitarists - Russell Lissack


Singer, songwriter and guitarist Joan Armatrading talks to leading guitarists about their music and guitar technique. Joan meets Russell Lissack, lead guitarist of indie-rock band Bloc Party and her youngest guitar favourite. Using his ever-expanding array of electronic effects, Russell is able to make his guitar sound like nothing else on earth. Be it spiky power chords, immersive walls of sound or the whoosh of an aeroplane taking off, he shows how far modern technology has influenced guitar playing in the wake of the psychedelic experiments of the 1960s. A Just Radio production for BBC Radio 4.
