I first encountered Marc Ribot’s angular and intriguing guitar style in the 80s, on Tom Waits classic album, Rain Dogs (the soundtrack to my final year of High School!).

It was one of those moments of frieghtening clarity when you say to yourself “this, this is what I want to sound like!”

Thanks to the glorious (if equally unruly) beast that is YouTube, here is a piece of Marc Ribot mastery (Marc Ribot y los Cubanos Postizos – Aurora y Pekin). Enjoy!
