Texas – The Artist

Texas is a Scottish rock band from Glasgow, founded in 1986 by Johnny McElhone (formerly of the bands Altered Images and Hipsway), Ally McErlaine, and Sharleen Spiteri (on lead vocals). Texas made their performing debut in March 1988 at the University of Dundee. They took their name from the 1984 Wim Wenders movie Paris, Texas. The band released their debut album Southside in 1989, along with the debut single “I Don’t Want a Lover”, which was a top-ten hit on the UK Singles Chart and peaked within the top ten of the charts in many other European countries. 

I Don’t Want A Lover – The Song

I Don’t Want A Lover is the debut single of Scottish band Texas, taken from their first album, Southside (1989). The music starts with blues slide guitar followed by a throbbing rhythm section before the vocals break in. It was released in January 1989 and peaked at number eight on the UK Singles Chart. 

The Blues Slide Guitar  – The Shape

This record has been crafted into the silhouette of a Blues Slide Guitar as played by Sharleen Spiteri on the songs intro.  Slide guitar is a technique for playing the guitar that is often used in blues music. It involves playing a guitar while holding a hard object (a slide) against the strings, creating the opportunity for glissando effects and deep vibratos that reflect characteristics of the human singing voice. It typically involves playing the guitar in the traditional position (flat against the body) with the use of a slide fitted on one of the guitarist’s fingers. The slide may be a metal or glass tube, such as the neck of a bottle, giving rise to the term bottleneck guitar to describe this type of playing. The strings are typically plucked (not strummed) while the slide is moved over the strings to change the pitch. The guitar may be placed on the player’s lap and played with a hand-held bar (lap steel guitar).
