  1. TheWoodDemonsAllAloneInIstanbul And here's a slice of one of our tunes ...
  2. TheWoodDemonsTheJollyGardenersSunMarch8 The Wood Demons will be running through our new album (due later this year) and our festival set at our old haunt The Jolly Gardeners in Mortlake, SW14 A great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon ...
  3. Looking for a home for my Ashdown rig, comprising EVO3 2x10 combo and 115 extension speaker (the lightweight version). They are both in good nick and sound great. (The 115 has a slight flaw - the thing that goes around the middle jack socket is missing. See picture). I can also throw in a custom-made Roqsolid cover for the combo. Ideally, I'd like to sell these together, but if you're interested in just one of them, please make me an offer. I regret that I am unable to offer delivery. Cheers, John (Oneandfive)
  4. I’m offering for sale my much-loved but not excessively travelled Ashdown rig. I’m rehoming myself and my family due to building work, so I need to rehome this beast as well. It’s been well looked after, it’s in good condition and sounds great. As Guy Pratt will demonstrate.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YP9PVdvgUc Includes: Ashdown ABM EVO III 210 combo. Some slight scratches and scuffs, nothing that affects sound Ashdown ABM 115 cab (one of the light weight ones). Good condition, apart from slight scratches and scuffs and missing part (nut? surround?) on middle socket (see picture) Roqsolid custom-made protective cover for the combo. A bit scuffed, but that goes with the territory ... I'm not considering splitting this yet, but let's see how it goes. I live in London SW14 (East Sheen). You are welcome to come and try it out. I regret that I am unable to offer delivery, so buyer must collect. Many thanks, John (Oneandfive)
  5. Hi all, I'd like to share a new track from my band The Wood Demons. We describes ourselves as prog, but there are lots of influences floating around... Here it is on Bandcamp, and you can also find it on all the other places. I'd love to know what you think. .https://thewooddemons.bandcamp.com/track/big-game-fishing
  6. Hi Basschatters, Are there any prog heads amongst us? If that's a yes, my band The Wood Demons are playing in Mortlake on Saturday June 16. The Jolly Gardeners is a nice traditional pub with a music room at the back. We play prog rock infused with lots of other stuff - psychedelia, classical music, film music, modal jazz, space rock, film music, psych-folk. You can hear what we do on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. If any of you can make it, I would be mightily chuffed. Cheers, Johnny Wood-Demon The Wood Demons, at The Jolly Gardeners, June 16
  7. [quote name='Oopsdabassist' timestamp='1496942988' post='3314915'] That is excellent work, very tempted to buy! [/quote] Brilliant, thanks - please feel free to give way to temptation, only a fiver.
  8. [quote name='EliasMooseblaster' timestamp='1496932472' post='3314805'] Thanks for sharing, really enjoyed that - particularly [i]All Alone In Instanbul [/i] (The cover photo wasn't taken in Richmond Park by any chance, was it?) [/quote] Thanks EMB - I'll tell the chap who wrote it, he'll be chuffed to bits. And yes, it is Richmond Park, which is never short of weird trees.
  9. Playing this on Sat 10 June, 12.00 pm at VannFest in Surrey.
  10. [url="https://thewooddemons.bandcamp.com"]https://thewooddemons.bandcamp.com[/url] Here's the first ever release from my band The Wood Demons. A five-track mini-album, The Lost Domain. It would be great if you could have a listen. Cheers, Oneandfive

  12. The Wood Demons footed the bill at The Comedy Pub in Piccadilly last Wednesday. Having asked to go on first to make it easy for our friends who work in town, we got a decent crowd and we played a 30 minute set really well with no (obvious) cock-ups. This doesn't sound that interesting really - stuff going wrong is always a better read. But I'll settle for it. Next one, Walsall Woodstock on Bank Holiday Monday.
  13. My band The Wood Demons are on at 7.30 at the Comedy Pub (near Piccadilly). A quick blast of psychedelic prog for anyone who needs a post-work livener. I've attached a flyer which will admit you for £5, which is a quid less than normal entry fee. There are four other acts of various genres on after us.

  14. Great thread, the kind that makes this forum live for me. It's dealing with one of the great bass-playing issues - when to cut lose and when to STFU. I think I was probably one of the needy show-off type players mentioned earlier. It's taken me a long time to calm down. I even call myself 'Root and five' to remind myself what I should be playing ...
  15. Not many. Only ever owned basses. Miss the Egmond (Super 8, I think) from my teens, not for its ludicrous neck dive or feeble output, but because I got it when I was 15. And my Shaftesbury R&&&Kfekker copy with grafted-on Gibson pickup. (Classy guy, me).Much better than you might think.
  16. In a more benevolent parallel universe, I would have acquired top-end examples of J and P basses, a Rickenbacker and a fretless Wal. As it is, my G&L can do a passable impersonation of some of those, so I can wait. I'm consoling myself with effects. First, an MXR bass fuzz. Then, for Xmas, the Ravish Sitar. This is supposed to be for six strings. But I don't see why they should have all the fun. This will get a post of its own, when I've got my head around the settings a bit more.
  17. [quote name='RhysP' timestamp='1418857403' post='2634250'] I would view that as a positive thing, means they're less likely to spend their time rehashing all the old rock'n'roll cliches that have already been done to death a thousand times over. [/quote] They will, you know. Because they won't realise they're cliches ...
