Whether through monstrous riffs in Botch or innovative, live sound manipulation in Minus the Bear, David Knudson is regarded as one of indie-rock's most mind-blowing guitarists. Where many musicians would use effect pedals to just obscure or amplify, David's insane finger-tapping talents and masterful footwork -- often tweaking things on the fly, in front of a live audience -- brought a human heart to MTB's most locked-in rhythms. In support of his first solo album, The Only Thing You Have to Change is Everything (released earlier this month), David visits today to discuss his favorite Botch and MTB artwork over the years, obsessing over seven-inches in his youth from Seattle's Fallout Records, and how his creativity has flourished since becoming sober.
