about

GUITARO's sound on JJ's Crystal Palace has matured from the raw heavy shoegaze of 2002's Futura Black. On this second full-length release, GUITARO adds a bit of disco rock to the mix. Lush boy/girl harmonies, walls-of-guitar and '80s synth sensibilities crystalize to make this record shine.

GUITARO - a rock, pop, shoegaze trio based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Formed in 1997, GUITARO's previous work includes: Futura Black (2002), Rainbow Brain (2004) - a track recorded for UK shoegaze label Club AC30, and tracks from an unreleased 1998 EP, now available on YouTube. Futura Black has just been re-released on vinyl by Memphis based label, We Made Records. GUITARO is Mark Wiebe, Jeremy Unrau and Heather Warkentin.

Track Name: Hill Mountain
if I go out of my mind
can you get me back in line
we could have a good time
don't get me wrong
it's not too crazy
when we get back we'll be fine
start all over again

what I said was "I'll be fine"
what you said was "I Me Mine"
this is not the right time
do it again
and call me crazy
what you said was out of line
start all over again

now you're deaf and i am blind
what you saw i heard just fine
won't be a next time
never again
its all over
you'll get yours and I'll get mine
start all over again
Track Name: Chateau 100
don't tell me it's real   
don't tell me
it's no big deal

you tell me it's real
just tell me
how I should feel

don't tell me what's real
don't save me
that's not my deal

who tells me it's real
don't tell me
how I should feel
Track Name: Blastok
what the hell in going on in here
will somebody please fill me in
why can't people just let things be
don't need anyone to control me

what do i know
what do i know

we're all living in a tv show
it got started many years ago
do you think that anyone is free
it's finally started making sense to me 

what do i know
what do i know
Track Name: 2085
good for you
good for me
let it go
let it be

now you will
now you won't
say you do
but you don't

is it what
you don't see
seems to work
in everything

endless night
endless day
pushes us
pulls away

and i think
this is why
called me up
say goodbye

is it what
you can see
good for you
good for me 
Track Name: Come Get Sums
i don't know what you've done to me
don't know if it was planned     
i'm trying hard to understand it

i don't know what you've done to me
don't know if it was planned     
i'm trying hard to understand

you heard about
what's happening
look inside out
at everything

it took a lot of nerve to say
the things you had to say
it got so bad how you could stand it

you took a lot of heat today
i know that it was planned
too bad they'll never understand

they always rig the games they play
part of the master plan
they need you to misunderstand it

there's nothing left for you to say
it's just a great big scam
they don't want you to understand
Track Name: Truth Hertz
run away
from the truth and you'll be fine
erase your mind
and in time our own sun will slowly die
and fade away goodbye

you will find that they never had
any answers to your question

run away
there is nowhere on the globe
left for us to go
parasites feeding off of the earth
one or both must die

you will find that they never had
any answers to your question
you will find that they never had
any answers
Track Name: Toothpaste
what are you waiting for
what are you waiting for
I’m running out the door

there’s no way in

who are you waiting for
who are you waiting for

there’s no way in

what are you waiting for
what are you waiting for

there’s no way in
Track Name: Make You
was a time when
saw it different
and I remember
and I remember

we sat and listened
and were forgiven
it was the right thing
it was the right thing

and then a bad dream
kept repeating
kept repeating
kept repeating

I won’t make you
I won’t make you

was a time when
saw it different
and I remember
and I remember

I won’t make you
I won’t make you

had a feeling
I'm not believing
it was the right thing
it was the right thing

I won’t make you
I won’t make you
Track Name: Modulo
take a look
edit out
the parts that don't fit

look around
edit out
the parts that are shit

take it on
figure out
the part that you play

listen up
figure out
the right thing to say

stick around
this is it
the part where you see

I see you
you see me
I see you me
Track Name: Plastic Bags
all these things
happening
happening
in time
and I wonder why

all these themes
in your dreams
in your dreams
in mine
and I wonder why

all these scenes
playing things
playing things
rewind
do you wonder why

all of these
living things
living things
arrive
one more reason why
