  1. Blues From a Gun - Jesus and Mary Chain
  2. I saw it more as "Luscious Lyrics"
  3. I'm a huge fan of Andrew Eldritch (Sisters of Mercy) when it comes to lyrics, there are many. But I've always loved the sting in the tail that he put at the end of Under The Gun. forget the many steps to heaven it never happened and it ain't so hard happiness is a loaded weapon and a short cut is better by far explosive bolts, ten thousand volts at a million miles an hour abrasive wheels and molten metals it's a semi-automatic, get in the car corrosive heart and frozen heat we're worlds apart where we could meet where the street fold round and the motors start and the idiot wields the power where the chosen hold the highest card on the field of honour where the ground is hard so the highest hand is joking wild and the house soon fold and no-one stand I put my finger on and dialled the tower, the moon, the gun, and nine nine nine, singer down cloudburst and all around the first are last, the blessed get wired the best is yet to come I put my finger on and fired heat-seeking, out of the sun you can set the controls for the heart or the knees and the meek'll inherit what they damn well please get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger everything under the gun
  4. Cattle Decapitation - Bring Back the Plague
  5. The first band I auditioned for had just recruited the guy that used to teach me bass. He was their bass player and was moving onto rhythm guitar. I got the gig based on my long hair and looks according to the vocalist, as my skills were considered 'adequate' at that point. Every week, a day before rehearsals, I would have a bass lesson with the rhythm guitarist, this time it was for free. By the end of the second month with the band, I was playing probably the tightest and most fluid I had ever played. I still have his lesson notes and use them when I want to kill any bad habits and sloppy playing technique. He was a real gem.
  6. When I was 14 I asked my parents for a Bass Guitar for Xmas. Xmas morning came and I discovered my dad thought I would have preferred a second hand ZX Spectrum and a load of games. He was wrong. Back in school after Xmas Hols and I hatched a cunning plan to sell the Spectrum and my old Scalextric set (I had a willing buyer lined up for the Scalextric set) with a view to putting the proceeds towards a cheapo Bass. Imagine my disappointment when my Mum informed me that the Scalextric has been part-exed for the ZX Spectrum. She also told me that day that they were getting divorced - I was pleased about the divorce, less happy about the Scalextric. So on reflection, I think they didn't help much.
  7. Just came across this: Be afraid, be very afraid.
  8. Larissa Stupar from Venom Prison Awesome stage presence and vocals hit the spot perfectly for their music.
  9. I love these topics. It's like a TV Show - "The Bass Detectives". Always amazed by the shared knowledge on here.
  10. To add a contrast to this,, I remember reading somewhere that Tim Commerford from RATM used only one finger to pluck. Subsequently I tried playing Know Your Enemy using this technique and it wasn't pretty.
  11. Alex Webster from Cannibal Corpse has a tremendous 3 finger attack.
