Hot weather music: languid and evocative but also precise and unshowy, every note placed with minimum energy for maximum effect. The echo on the lead guitar does two things – it conjures a shimmer of desert heat, and it also emphasises the fingerwork. It’s very easy to see why people loved the Shadows – their expertise and simplicity beckons you to find a guitar and try “Apache” yourself.
