The Fireman

Profile:
The Fireman is the moniker given to electronic music experiments created by Paul McCartney and Youth (Martin Glover). In 1993, the duo of McCartney and Youth released its first album, Strawberries Oceans Ships Forest, and followed that with Rushes in 1998. In 2000, Youth also took part in McCartney's similarly styled Liverpool Sound Collage. The duo's most recent album, Electric Arguments, is available on its website, as well as on CD.

The duo borrowed the title "Electric Arguments" from the poem "Kansas City to St. Louis" by Allen Ginsberg. In Wired magazine, McCartney stated this was because "he's been looking at the beauty of word combinations rather than their meaning."

In February 2009, Sirius XM launched Fireman Radio, a limited-run channel dedicated to the music of the group.

The acoustic guitarist in the band plays a Maple Taylor 12-String Jumbo.
