    Best Heckle

    I saw a disco/funk band in the 80s in Liverpool. The dance floor was empty so the singer shouts out, “Come on folks let’s see you all up on the dance floor!”. So, one guy gets up and starts dancing in the middle of the dance floor, at which point the singer goes back to the mic and says, “Not like that mate, you look a c**t!” Harsh, I know, but flawless timing.

    Still, he is selling it at dumping price.

    Caffeine and hearing loss

    I wasn‘t aware of that. Thanks for posting.
  4. Given the Lakland content and the high quality parts, if the overall “ensemble“ jives well together, that‘s one heck of a lot of bass for the money. I‘m not on the market myself, but if you were to put up some soundbytes of this baby you may significantly increase your chances of a sale.

    Yeah, it's sometimes surprising how that is. I don't know whether it's the andrenaline or what, but after 10-15 mins of playing, injuries that have us wondering if we can make it through the gig, miraculously stop hurting. I've had monster huge blisters that I got from playing upright bass (which I don't do often) burst mid gig and within minutes become painless. Glad to hear you had a good gig.

    So, how did your gig go?

    Ideal for the mancave.

    I thought you might show up here 😉. It struck me as maybe being your kind of thAng. They‘re playing near me soon with the bigband ( I‘m not sure if that includes the DJs. I doubt it somehow. Pity that.). I think I shall pop along for a listen.

    I did something very similar some years ago. I taped it up with elastoplast, the smooth type. However, I had maybe from Tuesday to Saturday to heal. It wasn’t my very best performance, but I got through. The superglue idea may well work. I know it‘s sometimes used in emergencies. Don‘t panic, you‘ll make it. Good luck on the weekend.

    Thanks for that recommendation, excellent. I skipped around a couple of their videos and landed upon this. I shall be playing it every morning before breakfast for the next while.

    How do you clean strings?

    I‘m sorry, I don‘t understand the question.

    We Don't Play There Anymore

    A buddy of mine experienced almost the exact opposite many years ago. It must have been in the late 70s or early 80s. He was playing with his band in a bar when, in between songs, a guy walks up to the bandstand and says, “OK guys here’s your money. At the end of this set you can pack up and go home I’ve just bought the place”. The new owner didn’t want to have live music.
