  1. That's just about nicer than anything I own.
  2. Wow. Great looking bass. GLWTS.
  3. not only is this my year of birth, but also my month of birth. I'll scare the other half with "I've found my perfect 60th birthday present".
  4. We are planning to play out doors at our usual rehearsal space once the weather has improved. Often, with a break, I find we can sound better, people are listening and concentrating and not going through the motions. That's jazz for you. Mind you, this is the longest break, ever. We also have 2 horn players, and thinking they need to stand well away and down wind of the rest of us.
  5. What an amazing resource. Is this going to stay up? Slits '77, fantastic. Peel was such a part of my teens through the 70s, and informed my musical landscape, but I found him more and more irritating as he implemented his brand of taste control over the years. I continued loving rock, prog, & jazz when punk & new wave came along, he just rejected anything if it wasn't done in a shed that morning, or it was the Undertones 😉 Thanks for sharing.
  6. she's trying smuggle out a couple of Belgian Buns with a cherry on top
  7. Si pulls another one out of the vault
  8. I acquired a Buzz a few years ago, and Mike and Christine were very responsive to various dumb donkey questions I had. Good luck to them in retirement.
  9. Bowie and Chris Squire, who were both huge influences over my life time. It's interesting. We don't "know" these people as real people, so how can any emotions we feel be real? But any emotional reaction is based on what their music and public persona meant to us, maybe how we were formed by them, and what their absence will mean. And it's music, which can embed itself deep into our core selves, so it's very personal.
  10. Amusing little thread, but I have to say I've always had a prompt response from Bass Direct. Always. Over several years. I agree it's annoying not to get a response when you're serious about getting hold of a serious bass, but I just feel it's a little unkind to make this posting if you haven't tried all means to get in touch with them, such as the 'hike' to get your phone during a break. I had the shittiest experience in another bass emporium well known to this forum, but after looking at other people's experience here I figured it was a one-off, and I took it up with them directly.
  11. New adverts making it difficult to navigate on iPad. Baling out. Also asked to reconfirm cookie choices. Good luck.
  12. I've said this before, but I reckon Si is a time traveller.
  13. I liked it. Then watched the rest of the "set". Great sense of humour.
