Helmet’s Page Hamilton Turns His Rig into Modern Art

One of my all-time favorite guitarists, songwriters, and composers is Page Hamilton from Helmet. They seem to have dropped out of the lexicon of great bands these days, but in the 90’s, they were making some of the most interesting, out-there music, including great albums like Meantime and Betty.

Although Helmet are back to playing shows these days, it seems as though Page is equally busy doing other weird shit with his gear. Namely, he is in the midst of turning a bunch of his old guitars and rigs into abstract visual art, for some sort of upcoming, TBA-show in May. Check out a brief clip of Page talking about the project below:
