KT Tunstall & the Akai E2 Headrush
KT Tunstall Says . . .
\\\"Basically, it’s the cheapest band in the world. I’d seen people using it with the guitar, so they’d loop guitar lines. The first person I saw using it was this guy called Son Of Dave, this amazing Canadian nylon Elvis, and I saw him at the 333 club, Old Street in London. And I was completely mesmerized. He just beatboxed and had a shaker and a mouth organ, and it was amazing. Really lo-fi blues. So I got myself one and thought there must be a way of getting beats by hitting the guitar. So a friend of mine helped me split all the signals so I could put my vocal and guitar through the pedal. Usually you’d just put one thing through. So then I just bashed my guitar and it came out sounding like a drum, and I ended up putting these beats together and it worked perfectly. And there’s nothing like a girl with a boy toy it definitely gets people’s attention.
After a gig I did I got about 600 emails from 19 year old boys saying ‘yeh, you were very good and all that, but what’s the pedal it’s totally amazing.’\\\"
