Clouds from the Underground is a Northern California based psychedelic pop, folk-rock, spacerock, collaborative music project with heavy UK shoegazing influences organised by Anglo-American postDIY/High-LoFi producer, singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and founder of failed UK label MIND THE GAP Records, John R 'DrJack' Shelton Dr Jack & the Electric Painkillers (Sacred Sorcery of Sound and People at the Sea). The current lineup consists of Jack Shelton and any number of guest artists from various associated music projects but particularly long time drummer and childhood friend James Southworth. Jack Shelton's unusual guitar sounds often out of tune and off beat are inspired by the concept of harmonic dissonance, and the painful anxiety that exposed listeners seek relief from instinctually which used in the right harmonic dynamics can create hypnotic tension and resolution into comfort... He achieves a 'glide guitar' like surf vibrato sound on acoustic guitars by warping the necks of cheap guitars after changing to lower tension strings and by manipulating the top of his Takamine EG350c which is cracked from a fall in a parking lot in 2007 allowing the top wood below the bridge to be manipulated by squeezing with one's elbow, subsequently forcing the player to tune the guitar so that there is enough sharp and flat pitchbend space and chords can be squeezed into tune with the other performers instruments...

This was useful for his first solo album 'NO REFILLS' when he had only acoustic guitars 2 harmonicas and a dorm room to work with, and had not yet aquired his Jazzmaster or Jaguar needed to play parts with bending chords.
