Paolo Angeli and His Frankenstein Guitar

On this week's episode of All Songs Considered, I tried my best to describe the Sardinian guitar that Paolo Angeli retooled. I'd never heard anything like this.

On his CD Tesutti, Angeli plays songs by Fred Frith and Bjork. I knew it was all done by one musician, but I figured it was all overdubbed. When I saw a video of Angeli playing his monster guitar, my jaw dropped. Watch, listen, and be amazed.
