june 2008 bio - for Liquid Architecture gig @Brisbane Powerhouse
Ian Wadley has played various instruments in countless bands. In the last year, when not drumming for Six Organs of Admittance, Jandek and Mick Turner (amongst others) he toured the US, UK and Europe, performing solo, instrumental impromptu compositions for guitar. The music can be spontaneous; it can reference his and others' back-catalogues. Ian likes to hover between emotive melody and unlistenable racket. He likes to use a looping pedal without necessarily knowing where the loop begins and ends. He likes to remember that the guitar is made of nuts and bolts, wood and wires, etc.
