  7. Every now and then you buy something you're not sure about and it turns out perfect. What am I waffling on about? A new strap for my pelham blue JC, that's what. 😁 I was browsing straps looking for something that maybe matched a little, rather than my usual grey or black Mono Betty. Came across a teal suede strap on Amazon, only 2.5" wide but sheepskin backed and looked quite comfy. The colour looked different in every picture, but so does the JC, and at only £20 delivered I thought I'd give it a go. Well, now it's here it's absolutely bang on, it may as well be marketed as the 'Pelham Blue Jack Casady Bass Strap'. The blue is perfect, the sheepskin matches the pickup and scratchplate perfectly, and the tan suede back is a nod to the bronze knobs I fitted and the wooden back of the JC. It's made a Canadian company, Perri's Leathers, and seems to be good quality, but time will tell. A bit grippier than I like, I'm weird, I like a slippery strap, I hate that grabbing at your clothes feeling, but hopefully it'll be fine. It does feel really soft and supple though which is nice. No metal adjusters or anything so can live on the bass in the case. I've also fitted some funky strap buttons I came across. With the heel mounted button I can imagine some standard straplocks might be uncomfortable but I found some new ones with an oversized cam shape, you just twist your strap on and it stays put. I really like them, nice and smooth. The one fault, which is a huge design error really, is that as you twist your strap on, especially a new one the cam tries to turn, loosening the button. Not a problem for me as the strap is staying on, but if it was on, off, on, off, I could see it becoming a real issue. Anyway, pictures. 😉 Here's the Amazon link if anyone's interested, they do some other nice looking straps too. Perri's strap

  10. I like it. A clever little play on words. 🙂👍
  11. I had to think for a minute... and then the penny dropped. 😁 Is that a contender for your new band name?

  14. I ate them all by New Year. That's what happened.
  15. Good Morning Judge - Louie Innis and the String Dusters
  16. This Ole House - Shakin' Stevens. A recording studio we used to use had graffiti covered walls, often read while others were doing their parts. Amongst the serious and edgy scrawlings was this gem, "Shakin' Stevens is pure denim toughness!"
  17. The very prominent bass solo(?) towards the end of 'Special Brew' by Bad Manners. It's simple enough but after a catastrophic balls up once, it plays on my mind through the whole song, and you know what happens when you think too much about what you're playing. We do a long, offbeat intro and slow verse of 'Chasing Cars' by Snow Patrol, which makes people wonder what the hell we're up to, then launch into a full fat ska version, which segues into 'Lip Up Fatty', then 'Special Brew'. All in probably over ten minutes long. As soon as we start my brain goes, "Ooh you f'd up the solo once and everyone stared, you'd better not do that again". And ten minutes of 'thinking' about it whilst playing is a surefire way to guarantee you'll f it up again, to the point that the rest of the band all turn to me in anticipation grinning. B'stards!
  18. Monkey Man - Toots and the Maytals
