Becoming the Archetype Guitarist Digs Up Treasures at Thrift Stores
Becoming the Archetype guitarist Seth Hecox, who is currently pouring through ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales,’ has an interesting hobby. He likes to find unique things at thrift stores and yard sales.
We’re not talking about clothes and records, either. Hecox looks for the real unusual stuff. “Like a wire player that I got,” the axeman told Noisecreep. “I didn’t even know this before I saw it, but before there were tape recorders, people recorded on wire.”
He continued, “And there’s a super old church service from some small baptist church in the hills of northern Georgia that’s recorded on one of the spools that came with the wire player. I think it’s from 1942 or something. Things like that really pique my curiosity, so I search ‘em out and see what turns up.”
Perhaps what turned up at a the yard sales will turn up on Becoming the Archetype’s new album, due out next year.
