Web of Spider – Green Metal Jacket

Release Date: December 07, 2015

” The latest release from Whitey Kirst’s ‘Web Of Spider’ entitled ‘Green Metal Jacket’ is guaranteed to pulverize your senses. Most famous for his guitar work with Iggy Pop, the Canadian born Kirst delivers his unique brand of six string magic on tracks like “Hot Rod Daddy,” “So Good,” “A Touch of Evil,” and “Dig In.”  Recorded in Calgary Alberta Canada and Hollywood California, the track “It Ain’t Nothing” is one of the last known recordings featuring Alice In Chains bassist Mike Starr.  Raw and aggressive rock & roll, Green Metal Jacket is a throwback to the go-for-throat sound of the 70’s without sounding dated.”

His music has appeared in both Film and Televison, definately one of the coolest guitarists within rock today. ” Whitey sings as he plays guitar, with that kind of energy that never excludes emotion. His music evokes, invokes and convokes all together, among others, Iggy (understandable) Ozzy, John Lydon, The Voodoo chile, the cat in rut, the dog in heat, the woman in every port, the three little porks in every man, the Christ (Krist) on cross…every one of us, simply”, Eric Fouillaret – Conservatoire de Paris.
