  1. Decorating: Finished the bedroom last week, finished the hall today, bathroom/kitchen/lounge next ! ! !
  2. I saw DS at the NEC on the 'Brothers In Arms Tour' - IMHO they were the most sterile live act I have ever seen. Musically and technically they were stunning but absolutely no soul or feeling whatsoever. The highlight of the evening was coming out of the NEC and seeing a laser display across the lakes - my lasting memories are a massive laser seagull sweeping towards me and a rotating die (or dice if you prefer) again rolling across the lake and heading my way. IIRC, and before Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler was part of a band called 'Brewers Droop' - I saw them at the University Of Essex during a Miner's Benefit concert and was mightily impressed. Chris.

  6. I'm the proud owner of 4 bass guitars (from Left to Right) 1) Status Stealth II - 5 string (Red tint and Red side LEDs) 2) MIA Fender American Standard Precision (the sticker on the scratch plates says 'Upgraded With Fender Custom Shop Pick-Ups') 3) MIM Fender Precision 4) Gibson Thunderbird (2015 model with Babicz bridge, and coil-tapped Hum-Buckers) 1) and 2): Status and White P - These are my workhorse basses. 3) and 4): Antigua P and Thunderbird - Way back in the late 60's I picked up copies of the Fender and Gibson catalogues from Hodges and Johnson's music shop in Queen Street, Colchester. The catalogues showed a P bass in the Antigua finish and the Thunderbird range respectively - I never forgot those images and nearly 50 years later I finally have one of each.

  12. University of Essex Rag Week 1970 , SU Dance Hall, 'Home' supporting 'Family' I like to think that 'Family' had a bad night - but they were comprehensively out-played and out-classed by 'Home' whose line-up included Laurie Wisefield (went on join Wishbone Ash) and Cliff Williams (hooked up with AC/DC).
