  1. Cheers 00Stephen Ian Powerfix is a very metal nameπŸ€˜πŸ˜‰
  2. Have those leads got a model number or something to identify them, in case they all are snapped up before I can reach a Lidl? πŸ™‚
  3. I have a similar issue with the socket on my Dingwall, I have a right angle cable that connects to my Shure wireless (it's a special cable) - it fits ok but if the cable swivels a couple of screws that are around the socket push the cable out a bit. Bloody PITA it is!
  4. It's a tricky balance - I see plenty of covers bands that play the proven 'trigger' songs and little else. Most average punters do always react in a Pavlov's Dogs kind of way. My band recognize the need for a few of these in the armoury and they are very handy to drop in - but equally we try and put other good stuff in (still popular tunes) to avoid the "Same songs, different faces" tag that a local landlord coined. Definitely more interesting for us too. We frequently get people say they enjoy our different mix of tunes - but this is mainly in the 'proper' music pubs. In the local, with less of a music record, you could probably play SOF, Brightside and Chelsea Dagger all night on repeat..
  5. Had a random one at a recent gig - first set so pretty early and no-one really tanked as yet. We launched I Believe In a Thing Called Cheese and this middle aged, very conservatively dressed guy at the bar goes loopy. Some of the most extrovert dance moves we have ever seen, including dry humping a brick pillar - repeatedly. We became completely transfixed, expected him to come through the singer at any point - but his timing was ninja like. We finished the song, gave him a round of applause. Then he left. End of the night all the locals were asking us who the guy was. They'd never seen him before. Mysterious Darkness Dancer is out there....

  7. I'm tempted to ask how that works, but I suspect the science will lose me ! But two together and central, even just ticking over gives the chest thump we all like πŸ™‚
  8. My pa is two RCF 325A tops, and two RCF 705AS Mk1 subs. These are the older series, and below the power levels of most of the newer range. But, they continually surprise us and we have a rep for a big sound (not loud, big!) Small pubs, just the tops, bit bigger add one sub (much fatter), big venues both subs (woah!) We've played three outdoor events with our PA this year and the full rig has been great. You don't want to be 'festival loud' as the punters come closer and into the music. But we've been heard and complimented from the far side of speedway track, a football pitch and a playing field. So, the older RCFs are good - the subs have the two inputs and crossover at either 80 or 100hz (we use 80.) Sure the newer ones are epic! Oh, yes - if you can position the subs centrally (we've tucked them under a truck and stage) - can get a good thump without overpowering the tops ime.
  9. I'll play - quite like this one from a recent pub gig. Happy with my tone on this too, which is always a bonus!
  10. I immediately thought of the Ronan Keeting version of 'Fairytale of New York' - and then realized there is no other song that makes me want to kill and maim as much as this. So it's a list of one. He's truly awful on it, but when the girl starts singing it sinks to unfathomable depths. Still like the original though.
  11. Hi Dood - any update on this, quite like the look of these πŸ™‚
