  1. I have brought quite a bit from them, always been happy dealing with them and happy with the stuff they sent me....there's a stonking recommendation for you!
  2. Pretty much for all of the genres you mentioned, P bass and a decent amp!
  3. Best gig, probably The Ramones at Hammersmith Palais but Sisters of Mercy 1st tour at Nottingham Rock City was right up there, and on the flip side Sisters of Mercy again at Rock City many years later was definitely the worst gig, so bad we left after about 20 minutes! I have to admit I saw The Smiths on their first proper tour and only lasted 3 songs before leaving for the pub!
  4. The 2nd solo section of Stevie Wonder's Masterblaster the final run down bit, I know exactly what it is doing but I keep missing a note out which throws the rest of the run out!
  5. Possibly a little bit of Slayer or Anthrax but far happier in the Thin Lizzy area but even then I seem to get board quite quickly, never really got in to rock or metal...not sure why!
  6. Jazz basses, I love the looks, I love the neck, I love how it sounds out front but I just cannot hear them in the mix on stage, it's there for some notes but then gone at other points so I just have no confidence in them.....nice Jazz out for sale then!
  7. I would like to suggest a "Consideration of bassists" after all we are normally the voice of reason in any band?
  8. Seeing as my current favourite is an Indonesian built Spector then I will offer this up
  9. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  10. I seem to recall there was an Irish rapper who went out under the name Duff Paddy! That one still makes me chuckle!
  11. The rock band I have been playing with a for couple of years is in turmoil yet again! We have management, we have a stunning vocalist, we have an album, we have some good gigs and festivals lined up but no drummer and no lead guitarist now.....here's a brief summary of recent events (last 3 years) I join band at the same time as the now departed guitarist We write and record our album, I have to write and record the drum parts as the incumbent drummer was far more enthusiastic than he was talented. Guitarist decides drummer needs to go if the band is ever going to move forward Drummer is asked to resign and guitarist brings in his drummer from the other band Band gets back up to speed however drummer bails out of rehearsals at short notice and finally bails out of a video shoot 2 days before we were due to do it Band sacks said drummer and I recruit a pal of mine to try out Wednesday night we rehearse, it goes really well...after the rehearsal guitarist says "he's not a rock drummer" and goes home Friday, guitarist says the band is not going where he wants so is leaving, half an hour later, drummer comes back and says he can't commit to 2 bands so won't be joining us! What do we have to do to get a settled line up! Bands, who needs em! Rant over!
  12. I am slightly confused, I have a bitsa Precision with a genuine Fender neck on it, should I now sand the genuine decal and serial number off just because it might not be a Fender body? (I do actually have a MIM body which wears a Squier Matt Freeman neck so really confused as to what I should do with that one!) I suppose I could swap the two over and have a bitsa bass which was all Fender....it all seems a bit futile really!
  13. Somewhat hard to spot in the distance but a Markbass 102 cab a LM3 head and a Status bass......and a bloody good FOH pa to play to absolutely no one!
