EDITORS’ NOTES

Doug Martsch of Built to Spill is one of the few guitar heroes to come out of the world of indie rock, and no slouch as a songwriter either. A Boise native, he grew up idolizing classic guitarists like Neil Young and Tom Scholz, and absorbing the distinctive writing of Talking Heads and The Smiths. And it's that mix of arena rock flash and do-it-yourself catchiness that's defined the idiosyncratic sound of Built to Spill. Their songs can be up to ten minutes on disc and twice that long onstage, but they're always full of high-distortion thrills.
