  1. Excellent, I really enjoyed that, thanks for posting. Want a Mustang now....
  2. I'd give up the 3 position switch on my Sterling for a bridge with mutes.
  3. I was with you right up to the headstock reveal. Not. Good.
  4. I've spent a couple of hours recording audio and video for a public information film on the dangers of going on holiday during a pandemic... https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3151932258150471&id=131726416837752
  5. Sometime in the early 90s, I went to see a new Irish band called The Cranberries play their first headline show at The Fleece in Bristol. There couldn't have been more than 30 people there band the band all looked despondent. About 6 months later they went on a US tour supporting Suede and proved to be so popular that halfway through the tour, The Cranberries were switched to headliners and Suede to support.
  6. A few years back we got a call from a reasonably high profile manager/agent to 'come in for a meeting' "Sign with me lads and I'll get you booked at so many festivals, you won't know what hit you" He threw us a handful of private birthday/wedding gigs that his main bands didn't want and took 20% of every gig we booked ourselves for 2 years. It would have been peanuts to him, but to us it was like having a fifth member who never helped carry the PA.
  7. Back when I was thinking of trading my Musicman in for a Fender Jazz, I A/B'ed a Squier CV against the just released 2012 American Standard Jazz bass. The Squier was about £360 and the American Std about £1200. The American Standard had a nicer finish on the neck and a smoother, rounder sounding neck pickup, but it was nowhere near 3 times nicer than the Squier.
  8. I think this is a great idea as this is what happens when bass loading goes wrong. Luckily, for me I'd had the soundpost glued in place about 6 years ago after one too many on stage encounters with over-refreshed punters so I was back up and running in less than 10 minutes.
  9. For a more contemporary take on the classic bass/drums/piano jazz trio, check out anything by E.S.T. and GoGo Penguin.
  10. I know where you're coming from. We once had a manager/agent who could only manage dates with an Excel spreadsheet. Even though we gave him access to our Google calendar, he still insisted I maintain an Excel version for him to work from.
  11. The cats are alive and well at every GoGo Penguin gig I've been to.
  12. I'd be interested in your Golden Slaps if Jack isn't. Just sayin'.
  13. I'm not sure which would make me feel more uncomfortable - the idea of the amp straddling two cabs on wheels or the 'offset' look of the cab firmly on one of the cabs. Gotta be stacked I suppose.
  14. I think I'm going to miss this years' bash as well. Technically I'm available, but it' my birthday on the Friday, then I'm playing in That London on Saturday and may not be in a suitable condition to travel on Sunday.
  15. Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.... I've been thinking bad thoughts about having a fretless again.. Please tell me you wouldn't be prepared to schlep it to Hackney when I play there in April...
