Kirk Lorange – Storm A Comin

By • Oct 31st, 2008 • Category: Blues, Music, Rock

A week or so back Allen left a comment that reminded me of a guitarist I hadn’t heard in ages, a rummage through the storage boxes and I found my old copy of Kirk Lorange’s early Eighties album “No Apostrophe”. Have a listen to Storm A Comin, truly amazing playing. Don’t miss this one.

Here is some hype from his site…

Canadian slide guitarist Kirk Lorange arrived in Australia in 1974 where he has lived ever since, becoming a citizen in the early ’90s. He has contributed to scores of album tracks, dozens of TV and film soundtracks, countless commercials, and played in too many line-ups to name. Through his own album No Apostrophe and songs like Richard Clapton’s “Deep Water” and Marc Hunter’s “Big City Talk”, his distinctive sound has become engrained in the fabric of Australian Rock Music.

Here is a video from YouTube featuring Kirk and his band at The Gympie Muster…

There are some more tunes at Soundclick.com, have a listen to the first track in the player near the bottom of the page. It’s called “Changes”, a killer, slow, shuffling blues that has some of the best slide guitar you are likely to hear.

So my thanks to Allen for reminding me of Kirk’s playing. Highly Recommended.
