  1. Amazing level of skill, but like Jaco et all, it's about as musical as roadworks.
  2. Can't wait to receive the 50% payout for my 600 Spotify streams! I've been looking at villas on the coast.
  3. We were recently contacted by a friend and neighbour, a fellow Brit in our little Bulgarian village, who runs the local village community Facebook group. He had been contacted by the daughter of an elderly village resident, complaining that her Mum, who has "sensitive ears" was being disturbed by the noisy English musicians in the village playing at all Godforsaken hours, and as he knows the other English in the village, would he mind having a word before they get the police involved. Given that we only practice one day a week, for about 3 hours in the afternoon, and my drummer and guitarist live about 30km away, I was rather perplexed by this. So I told him it wasn't us, and if they were hearing anything on a night the only thing I could think of was my home cinema system up in the barn, and I would endeavor to keep it down. So for the next couple of weeks, I wore headphones when watching the cinema so there was absolutely zero noise. Then one morning when we were out shopping, the local plod turned up at the gate, which was answered by my 75 year old mum who's currently battling cancer and undergoing chemo every three weeks. Who did her best to explain we weren't in. I actually really, really wish we had been, because the sh!t would have seriously hit the fan right then and there. A couple of weeks later, my friend received another complaint about the noise we were making, except this time we were 40km away playing a gig in another town. My friend informed them as much, and told them there was no way that it could be us making the noise she was hearing. Since then, I've played as loud as I want, whenever I want, and will happily watch my home cinema in the wee small hours with the sound on full blast. Until I get an apology for sending the police round and disturbing my seriously ill mother, they can quite frankly kiss my @rse!
  4. Something from the Zoom Handy range should do the trick. H2 to H6 depending on your needs and budget.
  5. I don't think I'm in much danger of it being hosted here.
  6. Thanks Yes. Real drums. The lead guitar, bass and drums were recorded in one live take. The singer is my wife, and backing vocals by our drummer.
  7. Great things these. Now the only pedal I use and fits neatly into my bass case. Truly the Swiss army knife of effects pedals.
  8. ....... I've had a few beers so, here goes! I must admit, sharing my music with the illustrious company on here is quite nerve wracking. I've always felt like a bit of an imposter. Having said that, I'm quite proud of this. Our first ever recording made in my home studio. Using two linked Zoom R16's for recording, then mixed and mastered by me using Studio One. It's been a hell of a learning curve, and I've been learning the whole sound engineering process as I go. But all in all, I think it came out OK. It's also or first ever official single release and it's available on all good streaming and download services. You can here it on one of the links below. https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/thepixieled/toy-town
  9. Another reason to be glad I left the UK. 😆
  10. I've only got about 9900 left to do then. Woohoo?
  11. Absolutely no point applying unless you have a blue vest.
  12. Yup. Agree with all the above. I had the 300 version and they really do sound rather nice. Great value for money. If I was in the UK I'd have this just for a backup.
  13. Phew! That's a relief. I thought I might have offended the LGTVHDMI+ brigade.
  14. Apologies. I was several beers deep when I posted, and it did indeed escape my clever drunken brain. 😆
  15. Superb tune! Extremely underrated band as far as I'm concerned.
  16. Maybe a good question for Boris? Ooh! Politics! Run away! 🤢
  17. I'm not sure we're even allowed to say Jaffa any more. Bloody political correctness!
  18. Folliclist! 😡
  19. Welcome to the real world.
  20. John Wilkes Booth finished it off.
  21. I never pay attention to the guitarist.
