ALARM: Guest Spot w/ Nick from Fang Island on the Teenar

image

image

Fang Island, with its three-guitar attack and lightning-fast riffs, knows a few things about shredding. Logic dictates that it also knows a fair amount about guitars. For guitarist Nicholas Sadler, there’s one axe in particular that stands out: a weirdly human girl-guitar of mysterious origins. In this piece penned for ALARM, Sadler laments the fact that he didn’t conceive of the musical mannequin first and goes on to explain what exactly makes Teenar so magical.

I Wish I Had Thought of This First: Teenar, Girl Guitar
By Nick Andrew Sadler

image

My name is Nick Sadler, and though I hate guitar players, I love guitars. This one is a work of mad genius. Here is Teenar, my dream guitar, at what could be a middle-school, father-daughter dance with her pervert-savant creator / daddy,  “Sunset” Lou Reimuller. I am absolutely enamored with Teenar, and I really wish that I had thought of this first.

Nick Sadler Does It Again - Daughters Pitchfork Review

image

Well even if Lex wants to shit on the new Daughters album which is 100 times better than anything they have done before and then complain about Nick Sadler for writing such a “bad” album, but then go take his writer credit off the album once everyone says it’s really good. Well fuck it. Pitchfork gives the new album an 8.2 and at least they acknowledge Nick’s role. Bummed at Lex and hope one day all the boys will reunite in this line up and perform this bad ass album. I miss those Daughters.

"This isn’t technically Daughters’ final album, but after recording, half the band quit, and whatever the remaining members (vocalist Alexis Marshall and drummer Jonathan Syverson) come up with in the future probably won’t sound much like this. In a February 2010 interview with Noisecreep.com, Marshall all but says so while discussing the new album: “[Former guitarist] Nick [Sadler] wrote a lot of the stuff on there, and he was really looking to make it accessible, and see how it fared… There are definitely parts of the record that were written to see how people will respond, which is kind of disappointing.” If Sadler’s name sounds familiar, it’s probably from the decidedly non-Daughters-like charms of his other group, Fang Island. While he’s not officially credited as a songwriter— the songs on Daughters are attributed to the entire group— Sadler is listed as a co-producer, which might explain the album’s relatively less abrasive sound.” - CLICK TO READ PITCHFORK REVIEW - 8.2
