Binky Boy explodes electric guitar conventions, covering ground from Greek folk music, to radical sound constructions, improvisation, and intricate composition for guitar quartet. Founder and composer of the avant-rock band Doctor Nerve, Nick Didkovsky invites guests Fred Frith, Rene Lussier, Mark Stewart, and Mark Howell to reshape and redefine the possibilities of the electric guitar on this new all-electric guitar CD.

"Radical technique... amplified artistry..."
David Lewis, Cadence
"There are things happening on this recording that defy description and categorization; harmonic disturbances and sounds that one might think that a guitar was incapable of. This release is a milestone in the trek of the guitar's evolution."
Jeff McLeod, Subversive Workshop
"Tout au long de l'album, Nick Didkovsky s'applique à nous faire oublier le son conventionnel de la guitare, modifiant tous les paramètres possibles de ses instruments et allant aussi loin que lui permet son imagination."
Sebastien Petit, SLEEPLESS RCV
