  1. This multiplied many many times.
  2. Completed a deal with Russ for some Black Schaller StrapLocks. Excellent communications and a smooth transaction. Thanks amigo, and stay safe. Chris
  3. It's currently a conflict between ....... Steely Dan - Cousin Dupree and Dave Brubeck - Unsquare Dance
  4. Take Me In Your Arms (And Rock Me) - Doobie Brothers
  5. Calling Newcastle Brown Ale 'sh*te' is heresy. In my opinion Newcastle Brown Ale was, and still is, a lovely pint. Anyway back 'On Topic' - My Basschat Strap Locks have been delivered safely (thanks Ped). They look the business and will be installed tomorrow. Take it easy and stay safe. Chris
  6. Rocket In My Pocket - Little Feat
  7. Mr Bassman - Johnny Cymbal (?). A fun song from way back, about bassplayers in general rather than any one apecifically. Chris.
  8. Farewell In The Rain - The Shoes (a memory from the good old days ! !)
  9. The Runaway Train (Michael Holliday from September 1956 ish ! !)
  10. Also with the proviso that valve front-ends are OK, my two choices would be: MESA Walkabout - 'nuff said. A very early Genz Benz Shuttle 6 (into a Schroeder 410L) - I really should have kept this rig, it was fairly easy to move and sounded awesome.
  11. Gimme A Pigfoot (And A Bottle Of Beer) - Bessie Smith
  12. WOT ! ! no Donald Fagen - I'll put that right immediately. From Steely Dan's 'Two Against Nature' album here's the last verse of "Cousin Dupree". The whole story is told in the song, and the musical groove is Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat. One night we're playin' gin by a cracklin' fire And I figured I'd make my play I said babe with my boyish charm and good looks How can you stand it for one more day She said maybe its the skeevy look in your eyes Or that your mind has turned to applesauce The dreary architecture of your soul I said, but what is it exactly turns you off?
  13. Just taken delivery of a Palmer pedal board from Jake - a nice, smooth transaction with good comms and prompt delivery. A pleasure doing business with you Jake, thanks.
  14. Thanks for the info 4000 - I stand corrected. Happy to acknowledge my mistake. Chris
  15. And now 4 becomes 5 - with the sddition of a MapleGlo Rickenbacker 4003. The first time I saw one of these live was a band called Stray at The Kings Head, Romford in 1969. IIRC Gary Giles played a FireGlo Rickenbacker and unleashed a sublime solo in a song called "Move On". I've still got my vinyl copy of Stray's 1970 debut album. Next live sightings were Chris Squire's SnowGlo Rickenbacker in 1970 (Colchester Corn Exchange) and 1971 (Royal Albert Hall - support to Iron Butterfly).
  16. Thanks for some elegant and fluid bass playing Rocco, you opened my eyes and ears. RIP.
