He's one on the most stylish performers in the entire history of Australian alternative music. He's the man with the guitar made from a wooden cheeseboard! He'sAustralia's own rock'n'roll gypsy! He's the mighty Roddy Ray'da and he's returned from the wilds and back roads with a new album in hand - Guns Girls & Guitars.

Pieced together over a lengthy period, in four different studios, with the aid of fellow musicians Murry Cook, Matt Reddell, Mick Radalj, Simon Goodridge, Reg Zar, Lucy DeSoto, Rose Tattoo's Pete Wells, Chris Welsh, Bob Spencer and others, this is the sound of a revitalised Roddy Ray'da ready to take on the world.

From the epic surf sounds of the atmospheric 'In Pursuit', the Motorhead-meets-Stoogers drive of 'Breakin' Skin' and the hard funk tribute to Jimi Hendrix 'E.N.D' (an acronym for the Hendrix appellation 'Electric Nigger Dandy’) by way of the raucous blues of 'Shot Gun Boogie', the funkadelic/Red Hot Chili Peppers-inspired 'Pasta Bullets' and the glam-infused 'The Drug That Killed Elvis', the pace hardly lets up.  Nevertheless, Roddy does find space to throw in the eccentric flute-led lounge/mood pieces 'Love Spell' and 'Cruizin' to help leaven the sound and add spice to the brew. And what a heady brew it is too! So drink up and take your fill of the new Rodday Ray'da album - Guns Girls & Guitars.
