Chalaque is the solo project cum trio of Nick Mitchell (Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura / Golden Lab Records). With a singular focus, he takes the concept of the rock guitar solo to its ultimate end point, beyond the imposed cultural constrictions of artlessness, finding a kind of punk rock spirituality in the historically undignified, employing an endless stream of fast, cack-handed tapping and fingerwork to create an a mesmeric, drone-like blur. "No one is doing more for the future of the guitar as sonic reducer in the UK than Nick Mitchell" - David Keenan
