Jace Parales: Ghost in the Machine solo

Jace - Ghost in the Machine solo section

Leah Woodward,Graham Pin Pinney: Aliases

What does the new Aliases record sound like? Do you have any hilarious stories from the studio? If not, then make one up. I want it to be ridiculous and I want it NOW.

The CD is a wild amalgamation of violin solos, midget mimes, horse noises, flatulence, squeaky shoes, boiling kettles, LOUD NOISES, jangling keys, tribal dances, petty arguments, soft porn, bongos, Joe coughing, Justin Beiber samples and there isn’t a whole lot of music, guitar or anything technical on there. We’re really happy with the results and think you guys are going to really enjoy it!

As for the studio stories, there aren’t many. We didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the studio as most of the CD was recorded live rolling naked in fields.

Pin and Leah came down to the Invictus Guitars workshop for a little chat! We decided that since they were here, we'd record this cheeky playthrough...
The track is Sirens, the finalĂ© to their "Safer than Reality" album available now direct from Basick records, iTunes and retail outlets. You can check out any news from Aliases at their facebook page on --------------------------------------------------------------------------------­-------------
Gear Rundown:
-Pin is playing his gorgeous Blackmachine B2 fitted with Bareknuckle pickups
-Leah is playing one of our own Invictus Guitars!
*An Alder carvetop SSH model, thru-neck design
*24 fret with a bubinga fretboard 25.5" scale

We're running this live through both a Pod HD Pro and a Fractal Audio Axe Fx (direct to board).

Both Pin and Leah are joining our swelling ranks, each with a brand new Invictus build on the way. We'd also like to thank all those others that have a hand in this video, including:
Basick Records, Blackmachine Guitars, Bareknuckle pickups, Line 6, Fractal Audio and many others.
Please make sure to check our own facebook page at and our website (coming soon) at to keep an eye out on our current builds and numerous upcoming events!
This will be the first in a series of Aliases videos, in collaboration with the Invictus Guitars workshop. Watch this space...
