  1. Absolutely.. Flipping.. Gorgeous. Normally singlecuts don't do it for me, but this... This is something else.
  2. As well as relief it could be the new bass has jumbo frets on it. Death to jumbo frets.
  3. A lot of the time my GAS has been based around getting something I don't have such as a 5 string, an EUB or a blank-board fretless. But yeah, I totally think perception of your own playing is related to GAS. I played the same bass for 15 years, took a break, got crap and all of a sudden I now own a ton of basses. So yeah, I have to agree with the OP on this one.
  4. To be honest, it all depends on what you play though. If you're doing smooth jazz, you're not going to be punching the E string, but I tend to play really aggressive music which fits with hammering the crap out of it. That said, they're still looked after, none have ever been properly damaged and even my oldest bass which I've had for over 20 years only has a few dings on it.
  5. I'm careful with them until I gig with them and then they get bloodied and beaten. My Enfield fretless is the latest example. I still need to clean all the blood off the strings from last week. It didn't get any knocks though, so that's something.
  6. I should start a band called Donkey Hotey
  7. Thing is the names aren't the same. Registering "Till Dawn" would not stop a band called "awake till dawn" because the copyright doesn't give you the rights to any other names that contain your name plus other words, only if another band has exactly the same name. I could start a band called "Paris In Flames" and I might get a sh*tty letter from the band "In Flames" but it's unlikely they could actually do a damn thing about it.
  8. I Used to have a side project called N******* J**** C***s, I uploaded an old recording on the internet and was immediately given a cease and desist by a punk band called N***** C***. So I politely told them I'd be continuing using the name, had been using it longer than them and it's different enough not to mix them up, so jog on, They then tried to pretend, laughably to be a lawyer which I then tore them apart on and eventually they sodded off accepting that this happens. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. However, I think them not responding to you isn't on. They should at least discuss it with you.
  9. [quote name='Rich' timestamp='1465217926' post='3066184'] Ah, right. So if we're not in it just for the money, we shouldn't be playing public gigs. Thanks for clearing that up. [/quote] And thus no original music was made ever again.
  10. Outdoor gig on saturday, destroyed my finger as usual due to the nuts right hand technique I use in this band (think Bernard Edward's chucking but on steroids and a bit crazier). I also wore an amusing T-Shirt which those who know Glenn Fricker will recognise. Here's a link to a pic (has to be a link as it contains swearing) [url="https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/13335842_1618202015071436_4858332849000123002_n.jpg?oh=4fa01db4a2aad0f2426760242a15a7ab&oe=5809C7E1"]https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/13335842_1618202015071436_4858332849000123002_n.jpg?oh=4fa01db4a2aad0f2426760242a15a7ab&oe=5809C7E1[/url]
  11. Done the thinky-maths and I won't be able to make it. Got a gig on Saturday which is 3 hours each way and I'll be driving both directions. I think doing more driving on the Sunday would be enough to get me to jump off a cliff.
  12. I'd be up for a Gail Ann Dorsey model.
  13. Priority 1 for me is leave your damn ego at the door. You're playing music, not performing complex brain surgery, anyone can do it. Priority 2: No mind games - Yeah, see you Priority 3: Punctuality - No I don't want you to be in the pub round the corner at soundcheck time Priority 4 - everything else including backup gear
  14. [quote name='BigRedX' timestamp='1464863551' post='3063214'] The playing music bit can be the most fun you will ever have (if you are doing it right). However the travelling, setting up and breaking down and the endless waiting around while having to listen to other dull bands - that's hard work. [/quote] Indeed, I remember when I was doing electronica and I enjoyed doing the set, but when I was sat in a dutch green room at 4AM being forced to listen to Gabba for the nth time after having been there since 3PM and having a flight at 9AM all for the princely sum of 100€ I decided f***.... this... Playing live is 45mins-1hour of awesome wrapped in hours upon hours of sh*te.
