Album Notes
Impressive instrumentals from chameleonic Swiss player:

And so heaves the collective sigh of disappointment as the latest instrumental guitar album lands - the format is just so hackneyed. Thank heavens then for Dominik Rueegg, aka Cuthead:
His hip bone is connected to madman Christophe Godin‘s humerus from the off, and instead of the usual bare-arsed Vai, Satch, gilbert and Gambale cloth, Cuthead brings in frenetic Beckism along with a slab of blues-derived double-stops. complex chords and jazzy bits that traverse lines left by Mike Landau and John Scofield. The third quarter of the album is rather less compelling, but the drop-jaw workout of FONK, the shades-of-Jimi THE SWINGING SINK and the twisted jazzy blue SQUANKY AH..demand the undivided attention and utmost respect of punters and peers alike.
Swiss soul- who‘d have thunk it?

Not BUCKEThead, Cuthead (Dominik Rüegg) the guitarist on this strong fourth instrumental album is called. Already with the first bars of "Trippin" one can easily fall in love with this wonderfully speaking, twangy tone and get down on the knees about Cutheads cool phrasing - like Robin Trower to " Bridge Of Sighs " times. Where others mostly act too much like guitarheroes at such opportunities, this troop (besides Rüegg its Martin Kohler/ Remo Signer (dr), Nikolai Tsonev (guestsolo)) sets on descretness and are convincing with it all the more. What it is all about with the electrifying "Fonk", blessed with an Ian Paice-like groove, can be guessed still easily. " Flying Cowboy " could also be called " Fusion Cowboy ". However, "The Swinging Sink " fascinates with a sound like SRV achieved it on "Lenny", however its held slower, almost like a guitar meditation. A climax of the around impressing CD is " Squanky ..., ah, " whose jazz-infected Bluesformat reminds of genii of the genre like Scott Henderson or Michael Landau. Rüegg was guitarist for Sina (CH act) and is after report among other things an asked donor for German television productions - which does not surprise afterall . Purchase for appropriately appearing 18 euros incl. shipping under the first-given surfing recommendation. Take a walk!

Awesome CD!
Walkabout is an excellent follow-up to Tones. They're both great. From a guitarist's point of view, I'm glad to say that Cuthead's music is everything I look for in a CD: awesome soloing, intelligent chording, great production, wonderful tones - wow - I wish I could cut a tune like this guy. Although each song shows a slightly different side of the artist, the CD still comes together as a concise statement. I'll be looking for the next one by Cuthead.
