PEEP-SHOW entered "Put The Hammer Down" and a home 4-track demo of a song called "Teaser" in Musician Magazine's 1997 "Best Unsigned Band Competition". The September 1997 issue of Musician featured Tim Mech's PEEP-SHOW as one of the 11 winners of the international contest. Winners were chosen by a panel of 5 celebrity judges - Bob Mould, Tori Amos, Vince Gill, Buddy Guy and Joe Satriani.

What kind of guitar is that?

In the fall of 1997, Tim Mech secured an endorsement deal for the handmade acoustic slide guitars that he plays with PEEP-SHOW. A small company named Marc Silber Guitars in Berkeley, California now exclusively supplies the rare custom guitars that you will see on stage and hear on the PEEP-SHOW recordings.

Designed in the style of vintage "Weissenborn" guitars, which were built in the late 1920's and early 30's in Los Angeles, California, Marc Silber Hawaiian guitars define the PEEP-SHOW sound.

For the uninitiated, both slide guitar wizard David Lindley and soulful rocker Ben Harper are two of the most recent exponents of the Hawaiian guitar. Perk up your ears and hear what can be done with a steel bar and an acoustic guitar. Your world will change.
