  1. [quote name='mikel' timestamp='1505299382' post='3370799'] "Please don't let me be misunderstood" by The Animals. I never understood that one. [/quote] Damn you! You've just made me snort Pepsi out of my nose! Hurt like a bugger too! A
  2. [quote name='Cato' timestamp='1505244112' post='3370513'] Pretty much every band I've felt strongly enough about to hate I've come around to liking, or at least apreciating, in the end. On the other hand, indifference lasts for ever. [/quote] This may be the most profound thing I've ever read on here! My hat is off to you sir! A
  3. [quote name='SICbass' timestamp='1503038463' post='3355175'] It's Rodrigo Gonzalez from the German band "Die Ärzte" - (the Doctors). ....they are known for having a sense of humour... [/quote] Oh those wacky Germans with their antics eh?
  4. [quote name='SpondonBassed' timestamp='1503165664' post='3356202'] The jam that fizzled out eh? [/quote] Mmmmm fizzly jammm....... Where can I get some??? Anyhoo, welcome along, sorta neighbour A
  5. [quote name='ivansc' timestamp='1502385954' post='3351156'] I will be singing and giwristing [/quote] Doing what, already? A
  6. [quote name='converse320' timestamp='1502297879' post='3350558'] Re amps, if she's like my daughter she'll prefer a beaten up second hand 80s trace elliot combo rather than something new. [/quote] An old Trace has a certain 'cool' factor that very few modern amps can get near to. Unfortunately for your daughter, they also have a certain 'heavier than the factory they were built in' factor too, so unless she's either a weightlifter or dating one they may be impractical, especially with the newer breed of superlight amps now on the market.

    [quote name='T-Bay' timestamp='1501840749' post='3347685'] Brilliant! Just what I needed, thanks! [/quote] That would appear to be short-circuiting the DC input to itself via the top strip of the Veroboard guys - careful how you approach this one.
  8. Hey, John P, what's the pinkish paisley patterned pedal (ooh, check out Mr Alliteration) just right of centre in that pic? Looks dead cool A
  9. [sup]Has the whole world gone completely mad? What is wrong with you lunatics?[/sup] [sup]Only kidding Saved. Looks good so far. Weird, yes, but pretty good. Best of luck with the rest of the build.[/sup] [sup]A[/sup]
  10. [quote name='Adrenochrome' timestamp='1496827403' post='3314058'] I would not have sold my Crate Powerblock amp ever - shame it got stolen! It served as a perfect small/light backup amp for guitar and bass, and even had it powering our wedge monitors once. [/quote] That's the sort of roles mine fills too (as well as a power amp for whatever needs a few watts thrown at it) - bloody useful little fellas they are... A
  11. "And all those people who you romantically Like to still believe are alive, are dead So I’ll wipe my snot on the arm of your chair As you put another Roger Dean poster on the wall God I could murder a Cadbury’s Flake But then I guess you wouldn’t let me into heaven Or maybe you would ‘Cos their adverts promote oral sex" Just a wee spot of lyrical brilliance courtesy of Half Man Half Biscuit {If you remember them you must unfortunately be as old as me }
  12. [quote name='dood' timestamp='1485546338' post='3224890'] Powersoft (Arguably one of the Daddies!!) [/quote] You're not wrong there Dan!! Those wee beasties are unreal! A
  13. There's a lot of chancers out there ready to try for a fast buck. If anyone pays the full asking price on that thing they deserve what comes to them! A
  14. [quote name='gjones' timestamp='1485604991' post='3225227'] You're not an Elvis fan are you? Because I've got some bad news. [/quote] This actually made me laugh out loud!! A
  15. Martha & the Muffins - Echo Beach Furniture - Brilliant Mind Yes, yes and thrice yes to the both of these!!
