Biography

Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada

GUITARO was formed by Mark Wiebe, Jeremy Unrau, Heather Warkentin and Jeremy Epp in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada in 1997. In the Spring of 1998 they laid down tracks for still unreleased EP at CDIS in Burnaby. The EP was in part, to fulfill some of Mark’s course requirements. After that initial recording, GUITARO moved to Winnipeg where they began work on their live element, wrote new material began work on a full-length album. The result was ‘Futura Black’ released in June 2002. From that point fans and critics began to characterize GUITARO as a second wave shoegaze act. Live performances in Vancouver in 2003, garnered them a ‘Best New Act’ of 2003 (music) nod in Vancouver’s Georgia Straight. In 2004 work began on another full length record and has taken six years to come to fruition. ‘JJ’s Crystal Palace’ is set for release in September 2010.

    I'm super excited about the new album, and still can't believe it's even happening at all. I hope they've still got it.

    i believe this band pretty much stopped doing stuff after Futura Black. at least, back in the early days of soulseek, that was the talk in the shoegaze room.

    I'm not sure about the title "Heaven", but there was a promo EP that they released seemingly ages ago. Gotta be one in the same.

    Why do I have an album called "Heaven"? "Dethroned" is on that.

    I want a new album, right about... now. If everyone could please choose a deity and beckon them ceaselessly for a new release for Guitaro, that'd be great.
