Paolo Angeli and his big ol' strange guitar

Paolo Angeli plays a Sardinian guitar customised with extra sets of strings, levers operated by footpedals, and assorted other mechanisms and doodads, and it sounds like nothing else you've ever heard.

His recent album contains cover versions of songs by Fred Frith and - quite appropriately considering the weird factor going on here - Bjork.

Thanks to Janet who heard this guy playing on a National Public Radio All Songs Considered podcast.
