They don’t call him Flash for no reason. Peter “Flash” Sheedy was named by music journalist Mort Fist as “the most astounding guitar player in Australia.” His guitar instrumentals (Instros as fans call them) have long been a big feature with Johnny Green’s Blues Cowboys. And his instro album, Golden Guitars from the Depths, has been a consistent seller since its release in January 2000.
While still rocking the pubs, clubs and festivals with the Blues Cowboys, Flash is now joined by two more of the Cowboys in their latest venture – Flash Sheedy and the Instro-Matics.
The two other members are Demo Dempsey on drums and Ed Matzenik on bass. Demo and Ed feature on the Golden Guitars CD and on three instro CDs released by Ed. The Instro-matics are currently producing a video of their version of the surf rock classic Bombora, originally a hit in 1963 for Ed’s old band, the Atlantics.
The Instro-Matics will perform at the Wickham Park Hotel in support of The Wildes this July.
