Default 3 guitars in a band??????

There is a band who play locally who's set-up is singer-bassist-drummer all standard but with 3 guitars.

I've heard them play at a venue in town and although it sounds like an inventive concept it just sounded like a whirlwind of noise and confusion to me. I couldn't hear the different riffs/progressions.

Has anyone else come across any bands with 3 guitars and if so what did you think of them???

my old band had three guitars, a singer, a bassist and a drummer..

my new one will too....seeing as its gonna be the same three guitarists. that is..unless the rythym guitarist decides to play bass..

I didn't realise there were that many. The only ones I know of from the list are The Eagles and Radiohead.
Maybe it's just the particular band I saw or even the room they played in that caused what I can only describe as noise.

boo boo your knowledge of music and things pertaining to it just amazes me. Slipknot has three percusionists but they really only need Joey

They drum at the same time for a rounder fuller sound. Some of the songs are really heavy bang bang psychedelic stuff off their first EP. You can hear and watch their vids on their site

thewarlocks.com

They were voted band of the year in the LAWeekly. They've been in NME and all that action.
