ROCK icon Andrew Stockdale is undressing his rock style into a more 'naked' sound in a special, intimate show in Byron Bay this weekend.

The Byron-based artist said he would go on stage with a loop peddle and a guitar to play a some progressive rock.

"I'm sort of applying that sound to the Wolfmother stuff as well, so a bit of old and new," he said.

Stockdale said he was developing this as an alternative to his regular music output.

"It's a more subtle performance. Anyone can see that you are switching on a peddle, they can see what you are doing and they can engage with you. There is a bit more vulnerability."

The musician said there was a big difference between an Andrew Stockdale show and a Wolfmother show.

"I'm taking a break from performing on stage and doing a high kicks, and I'm getting more satisfaction from playing the music, connecting with people and the music," he said.

"(It's) less of a spectacle, and goes against entertainment, but I think it does speak to some people on another level.

"I've seen massive productions by playing with Guns and Roses and AC/DC. I'm sure people enjoy big shows."

At The Northern in Byron Bay, tomorrow (Friday) from 8pm.
