Unplayable Sofa Guitar, The
Profile of the performer Unplayable Sofa Guitar, The: Two albums released, The Unplayable Sofa Guitar is a result of chance and unforeseen events. Back in 2001 producer Paulo Miranda invited some of his friends and members from other bands to come by the studio and each, separately, in a single take, lay on tape the sounds Paulo had in his mind for a private, homemade album. Not to be rehearsed, not to be over-produced, not to be released. It just happened that the demos caught the eye (and ear) of Francisco Pinho (Independent Records) who promptly, and insistently, offered to make 1500 CDs of what was meant to be kept an excursionary country-rock-electronica experience among friends. CD came out in 2002, concerts followed and a second album, «Rocky Grounds, Big Sky», was released 2005, this time with rehearsal. Still much a volunteer "no-label-commitment" approach to the sounds of country-rock, a new album may be on its way to see the light, hopefully, in the near future.
