  1. No point it gathering dust. Sell and buy something you will use.
  2. I don’t get the point.
  3. ‘Far more complicated than it needs to be’ could be the entry for Jazz In the Oxford English Dictionary.
  4. We frequently go a few months between rehearsals in one of my bands. Sometimes we are a bit rusty, others we seem spot on. If it has been a longer than normal amount of time we seem better - my theory is that we have all put more effort in to get ready but that could be rubbish.
  5. I have a 1000w Orange Terror head, super compact and midget. Never ever had the amp above about 3/10 at a gig. Wound it up to 7 or 8 to see what it could do an an outdoor event and our drummer could hear me half a mile away as he drove in. I have used the supercompact on its own several times at medium sized pubs/ clubs and never found it wanting.
  6. Oh yes indeed! Within an hour it was lasting away. Accuracy was reasonable with it able to fairly routinely hit a 6ft target at 100yds. Great fun but expensive to run.
  7. When I was a member of a target shooting club a few years ago there was a guy who loved blackpowder stuff and bought himself a small cannon. In the interests of safety you start the charge low and work up. He started a bit too low and the result was a disappointing woomph followed by the cannonball slowly rolling across the firing point. Perhaps he showed this to the Gallaghers at some point?
  8. It can also have a negative effect, I like the Geddy Lee signature Jazz but would be reluctant to own one as I am not a fan of his. Similar with the Nikki Sixx thunderbird on page one, stick normal Gibson livery on that and it’s a hell yes! But the Nikki Sixx stuff puts me off.
  9. I don’t think we are the target market for signature models. They are mostly aimed at the fan market- have ‘the bass your idol plays’ and you will surely sound exactly like them, or perhaps not........ I bet most end up sat in a corner or on a wall hanger.
  10. I like the version that made number 1 a couple of years back. Everyone likes a sausage roll after all.
  11. Living on a prayer? How does that work then?
  12. There are some serious hard core beards that suggest a life of extremism.........
  13. Why not? Perhaps the reason he got mugged was due to inadvertent lock in. I fear you would struggle to prove his story was untrue in a court of law...... 😀 Perhaps the tube driver accidentally stopped at the wrong station? Maybe that is why it was so quiet? Maybe I should stop this silliness and do something productive?
  14. To be fair to the Jam they do not state that the tube station was open, merely that they were in it at midnight. Perhaps a trainspotters lock in? Inadvertent problem following long visit to the Lav after a particularly vicious kebab? The possibilities are endless.....
  15. As far as I know John Lydon has yet to be confirmed as the antichrist, in fact I doubt someone like Bakunin would even recognise him as an anarchist.
  16. Really? Wow, hope the day job is going well 😉
  17. But that can be a pain. I saw an Irish band called the Touts a couple of years ago. It’s nigh on impossible to find info about them which is frustrating as you just get a million pointless hits.
  18. I have a BEAD string Jazz, sounded awful at first, then tweaked the nut and it sounds great, so much so that the 5 string went within a week. I only use it on two songs in the set list anyway but it’s fine for the job.
  19. Grew up in Barry, then studied at Harvard and works for the MoD? Alarm bells there (and apologies to all Harvard graduates from small towns in Wales now employed by any of the national security forces obviously). Facebook, ebay etc are all a minefield as are many forums. The system here seems very well set up to avoid such morons and is always my first port of call for stuff.
  20. Equally I work in a place with 80 staff and 200 ‘customers’. We have not had a single case (thankfully as we have some very vulnerable people). When looking at anything in epidemiology and individuals experience is just that - the individual experience. Some will be in groups and areas that are very badly affected, others will know no one affected. That is why we need the bigger studies. They are not based on asking everyone but on using sampling techniques and extrapolation to get an idea on how badly affected any given area is. It isn’t perfect but the expertise and experience of those doing it improves all the time and is also based on experience from previous epidemics of all sorts of diseases.
  21. Click on your username top right then click ignored users, you can block the content of named users so you don’t, see what they post or get alerts. You can still see quoted posts but it can make life that little bit nicer if there is someone who just posts stuff you don’t like/ is rude or whatever. I am a mod on a car forum that uses the same system as this one and it’s a great feature as there are always a couple of ‘characters’ on any forum and for many users being able to filter that makes for a more pleasant experience.
  22. They have blocked feedback on stuff that is refunded for ages. It’s stupid, sometimes the refund is due to excellent service, others it’s terrible.
  23. Many people working are ignoring/ being forced to ignore the 2m recommendation. I don’t think it’s a good idea personally but there has to come a time when a certain degree of sensible risk has to be taken. Sadly the much vaunted, and undelivered, track and trace systems are the key to controlling the spread. We have been approached for an outdoor gig in a few weeks time but turned it down when we saw the details. I think they will be very odd events and as it’s not a source of significant income to any of us it didn’t seem the right thing to do, we have suggested another local band where we know a couple of members are struggling financially and they seem keen so it’s worked out well.
