  1. Can't remember what album it's on but there's the live version of "Underground" by Ben Folds Five, where in the pause after the intro line "I was never cool in school, I'm sure you don't remember me..." someone in the audience, with impeccable timing, shouts "Who the f**k are you?".
  2. I gig very, very infrequently, the last one i did was a while ago for a mate’s 40th. He put together a 14 piece samba band and hired a decent venue in Southampton. I got my Ampeg SVT serviced, hooked up the 8 x 10 cab and used my ‘75 P bass with flat wounds. Sounded absolutely bloody gorgeous, even the sound guy was smiling in the sound check and the brass players were enjoying it too. I kept expecting someone to tell me to turn it down but it never happened. Went to bed on a high that night after a mate of mine, whose opinion I value, said afterwards the bass sounded superb. Woke up the next morning in a cold sweat thinking, “he never actually complimented my playing though…”
  3. I bet this sounds like an absolute beast. Love it, would definitely get shot if I bought it sadly.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ampeg-bass-cabs-and-amps-/164758533438?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 This looks like a good amount of Ampeggary for not mega bucks. Not that I need another two bass rigs particularly but hey.
  5. The worst thing is that price isn't even for the whole bass. At the bottom of the ad it clearly says "pick up only". Sorry.
  6. Currently working with a client who is, at times, a royal PITA. The only thing that makes him bearable is the fact that he thinks it's "subwoofter", not subwoofer.
  7. "Very unique" Either it is unique or it isn't. There aren't degrees of uniqueness.
  8. I haven't got the energy to pursue him any further! Not really getting the reassuring vibes I'd need to persuade me to part with decent used car money for an old bass.
  9. I messaged the seller asking for more details on originality etc., and was overwhelmed by the deluge of information he responded with: "Original covers but no original case " That's cleared everything up then. Now where did I put my chequebook?
  10. Just checked and it is a legit 1962 number. Don’t know much more than that though. Ran it through DVLA out of curiosity and it’s not had an MoT recently.
  11. https://www.facebook.com/groups/184621401586617/permalink/4029904807058238/?sale_post_id=4029904807058238 This caught my attention. Good price for a '62, even a refin. But not many pics and zilch description...
  12. Completely silly question this but I’m enjoying not having to think about anything important for a couple of days: You finally move into your dream house. Do you have a bass in every room, or just one room with all of them in?
  13. Not sure if it's true or not but I once heard of an AWB tribute called Average Height Band.
  14. “Steven’s last night in town” by Ben Folds Five. As Ben’s singing the last long note before the band comes back in, you can hear a mobile phone ring in the background followed by a burst of laughter.
  15. I think Guy Pratt said he used to get told off by Pink Floyd fans for playing “Money” wrong.
