Check out his website Spunky Munkey.

Last but not least, here are some words from Spunky Munkey.

Spunky Munkey came about as the end result of a cover band from way back. All the best band names seem to have a double meaning and so does Spunky Munkey. Songwriting began in earnest, back arond 2000 and since that time over 300 songs and counting, have been written. The style is mainly rock and experimentation. One instrumental song has been written and it came about in 4 parts, based on some jazz chords.

Spunky Munkey records with N Track and uses Harbal and Cool Edit as editors, with a wide assortment of vst plugins. Music production and technique is engrained by this point and if you need production or advice Spunky Munkey can provide that. A search of Spunky Munkey across the internet will lead you to all kinds of original Spunky Munkey music. The band name Spunky Munkey has been registered since the mid 90's. The music journey continues.... Stay tuned, Rock On.

V3XL0R's musical influence comes from her monster friend, Dennis, her synesthesia (music to visual and music to touch/feel), and her melolagnia fetish. V3XL0R uses these influences to create orchestrated, cartoony, grimy, growly, yoy-oy themed tracks. Most tracks are free, so take a listen (or download) and see what you think. Peace!

Paulo 'Nothinbutdablues'

A blues guitarist from Portugal who played on the track Stalingrad by Luke Pascall. Once the track is completed, I will put up a link to it.

Here are some words by Paulo 'Nothinbutdablues' himself.

Mostly, as a self-taught guitar player (maybe not... considering all the influences and internet/book resources I've come across lately!) and rather than trying to be anything remotely near a good player of any great technique, I'm not bound by genre or clichés. Blues is a human expression of emotion. That may explain why I felt called to blues music, even though, I grew up in Europe, a continent apart from the music’s heartlands in America’s Deep South.

I’m a fan of raw guitar players who aren’t really polished… you’re not sure if it’s all going to fall apart. Those who, rather than trotting out a collection of preconceived practiced licks and lines, take some chances along the way, creating ideas on the spot. IMHO they sound more exciting and impressive for it. I play whatever comes into my head. It's an adventure, because when I do a breakdown or a solo, it's new each time and I just let it go... The real beauty is playing without thinking and once you have some concepts down, what comes out, is from the heart. It's second nature. I just enjoy listening and playing some music, in honor of that timeless way of killing time (just for the fun of it...and whenever inspired). I'm happiest picking out a blues tune to a suitable backing track. After all, simple music is the hardest to play...

As a tone fiend, I like to let those bluesy guitar tones breathe a little bit. But, almost everything I play, it never, ever comes out quite the way I heard it in my head. Sometimes I end up with something that's kind of close, but it's not quite what intended originally. These uploaded tracks are no exception... They are far from being perfect. First of all, I'm not a fan of perfection when it comes to music. Playing music is a human activity, and we humans are far from perfect! There is a certain charm in something that feels human with the flow of a spontaneous performance. It's that spontaneity that makes for the magic...

You can find Paulo 'Nothinbutdablues' on Soundcloud, iTunes or Amazon.
