Artist: TOM MORELLO
Who: Grand guitarist from furious rapping fury
Rage Against The Machine. He also played with Audioslave
and collaborated with about a million other artists.
His motto: “Feed the poor. Fight the power. Rock the fuck out.”
Morello: “Fire and Flood are my London Calling. Admiring The Clash at their apex
moment, I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre.
I aimed to forge a central curated vision to tie together a sonically fearless, wild,
and wide-ranging musical ambition with a tremendous cast of collaborators.
And of course, there are many guitar solos.”
On the Flood another cast of famous names – like Idles, Nathaniel Rateliff,
Manchester Orchestra, Ben Harper, Barns Courtney and more – lined up to
blow off the studio’s roof with the Rage Against The Machine turbine.
NME says: “More experimental than ‘Fire’, ‘Flood’ finds Tom Morello out
to prove that, just like his beloved electric guitar, he has a fascinating
future indeed.” Score 4/5.
