A rare performance from three of the UK’s finest guitarists
Les Triaboliques unites three of the UK’s most inventive guitarists – Justin Adams, Lu Edmonds & Ben Mandelson – into one guitar super group.
Combining their impressive musical backgrounds, having played with Robert Plant, Public Image Limited and Billy Bragg, Les Triaboliques showcase their astonishing instrumental work on guitar, mandolin, Turkish saz and cümbüş. Les Triaboliques blend Justin’s desert-blues-soaked guitars with Lu’s saz and cümbüs and Ben’s mandolin/barizouki into their own unique dusk-core genre.
Why ‘Les Triaboliques’? Formed as a result of an inspired probe by record-company geneticist René Goiffon, Les Triaboliques somehow manage the impossible: to blend Justin’s desert-blues-soaked guitars with Lu’s Turkadelic saz and cümbüş and Ben’s mandolin/barizouki world-string-theories, amplifiers and vocal mikes at the ready. The Desert, The Delta, The Steppes, The Underground. Crossing the stone bridge between dark city and dusk. On the creaking causeway, instruments on backs, rain on our packs. We smell the black earth. We are intent.
