  1. Love me some Wo Fat. Ripple Music are about to re-release their first record, The Gathering Dark, on vinyl.
  2. Nice! I've been tempted by the beige version of that one for a long time.
  3. I think people are expecting far more diligence from border officials than is actually the case. I can't imagine that stopping people carrying instruments to see if they're new and subject to import duty is high on their list of priorities.
  4. I've got a few Couch straps and would definitely recommend them - the Right On ones look nice as well, but I find the Couch designs more striking. I'm a big fan of Couch's straps that use old vehicle upholstery and I recently bought one made out of a hideous old 70s sofa. Shipping costs weren't as bad as I feared and it somehow didn't get hit with customs duties either.
  5. Just to note that there's a Supro Huntington in the for sale section here. Never tried one personally but it looks pretty sweet. Alternatively, why not pick up something cheap like a Squier Bronco and then you can mod it to your own personal tastes?
  6. We'll truly be living in a silver future if anyone can understand, let alone embrace, the god-awful snare sound off St Anger.
  7. I've seen Church of Misery a few times and each time was struck at how ridiculously uncomfortable (and kind of silly, come to think of it) it looks to sling a bass THAT low.
  8. The loudest gig I remember was the Supersuckers at the Underworld 15+ years ago. I was a massive fan at the time but it was so loud it was almost painful and it was impossible to identify what song they were playing. Took about 4 days for the ringing in my ears to stop afterwards.
  9. I picked up a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M20x headphones a few months back for a bit under £40 and have been very pleased with them.
  10. I don't think any discussion of ropey lyrics and rhymes would be complete without a mention of Life by Des'ree. Behold this abomination from the mid-90s! I'm afraid of the dark, Especially when I'm in a park And there's no-one else around, Oh, I get the shivers I don't want to see a ghost, It's a sight that I fear most I'd rather have a piece of toast And watch the evening news Life, oh life, oh life, oh life, Doo, doot doot dooo. Life, oh life, oh life, oh life, Doo, doot dooo EDIT: I see casapete beat me to it!
  11. Yellow Machinegun were a cool Japanese band from back in the day without any obvious gimmicks. Can't find any videos with decent sound, but their 1998 album Spot Remover is definitely worth checking out.
  12. I didn't have much luck finding a Mustang bridge, so I replaced the stock bridge on my Bronco with a Hipshot Kickass.
  13. I've tuned my Squier Bronco down to BEAD. Got a set of Labella roundwound strings for a short-scale five-string bass and just used the heavier four strings. The gauges are something like 65 to 125 and it works pretty well with reasonable string tension.
  14. - Comment deleted as query arose from not reading the ad properly -
  15. Big fan of stoner rock and doom - I post the occasional review on The Sleeping Shaman. My bass playing is pretty rubbish, but I've found Beholden to the Riff a good place for doomy tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0B0JPGg6g6Y0jg5r43Sciw
