Wearing his go-to White Falcon and a platinumblonde pomp, a circa-’85 Duffy conjures sweet, ’80s-correct flange tone for this classic from Love.

Outfitted with more hair, more gain, and fewer effects, Duffy straps on a Les Paul Custom to crank out a blistering version of “Love Removal Machine” in a 1987 appearance on Britain’s legendary The Old Grey Whistle Test. Killer solo on this one.

In this spirited 2012 SXSW performance of one of the Cult’s biggest hits, Duffy rocks his wah just fine in front of his Matchless/Roland/ Marshall amp wall.
