  3. ERUPTION 2017 https://www.facebook.com/events/455560764821094/In collaboration with Captain Toms, Kenny's Music, and the Evening Express, we are thrilled to announce ERUPTION 2017, a battle of the bands competition open to all performers within Aberdeen City & Shire aged 18 and over. Last year we amassed a £2,500 cash prize for the winners. Sponsors for this year are currently being actively sought - currently, the prize fund is sitting at £2000.ERUPTION was launched in 2016 to stimulate interest in grassroots music within North East Scotland, and this will be its second running after a spectacular first year. We're especially delighted to welcome back last years sponsors, Captain Toms, Kenny's Music, and the Evening Express. Together with your help, we intend to continue showcasing just how deep and diverse the local talent pool is. Heats will be held on weekends throughout June, July, and August 2017. The semi-finals will take place in January 2018, with the Grand Final in February 2018. Each show will take place from 8pm-11pm and consist of 4 bands, each playing a 30 minute set. Running-order will be determined by chance on the night of the show. Comprehensive backline will be provided to facilitate short intervals, but performers are welcome to take along their own amps, pedals, snares, etc, and drummers will be expected to use their own cymbals. All acts need to be in the venue by 6pm, to load-in, discuss technical set-ups with our engineer, and take part in a game of chance to allocate their stage slot. Competing bands will be awarded a score. Depending on availability, bands are welcome to enter multiple times, in order to better their score. Scores are not cumulative. The 16 bands with the highest scores will be entered into the semi-finals, which will be decided by knockout, with one band from each semi-final progressing into the grand final. Judging will be by a panel. We’ll endeavour to ensure that these panels are as independent and objective as possible. Points out of 10 will be awarded for: Material Performance Technical ability Audience engagement Professionalism ... to arrive at a potential maximum score of 50 per judge. A door charge of £4 will be in effect for each heat. There will be no free admissions. This is a contest, so there will be no payment for performing, however Krakatoa will absorb all show costs. Get in touch if you or your band would like to play. Any sponsors seeking to come on board please email flash@krakatoa.bar - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - SPONSORS (so far...)

  4. http://store.steampowered.com/app/304430/INSIDE/ Inside is only £8.99. Get it, you horrors.
  5. You missed the joke.
  6. Payday 2- older game and I've not played it since the first, great idea of the game and the robberies are great on it, I've got quite into playing it and spent a lot of time doing so just a few wee things that annoys me; weapon customisation- you can't just buy mods ($28,000) for a mod is ridiculous but not only that you have to unlock it then buy it, and do the same for every single mod on each weapon. The AI's are the usual crap, basically storm troopers when it comes to shooting, glitch a lot and always get taken into custody by the police, only good thing is they are good for reviving. The payouts at the end can be kinda gash and not worth it unless you do like a 3 day mission with paid out $600,000 buy then you only walk away with $150,000. The offshore account is bullshit. its a time consuming game but can be quite fun if you get a good team online
  7. How many times do we have to tell you? It's just your period!
  8. Well not always, I know plenty of folk who use super bikes I.e r1s, s1000rrs, z1000rs for just city use, not practical really considering their high performance bikes
  9. Yesterday
  10. I've been pretty content with my lot for a while but I hear that Yamaha are about to revamp my favourite of their basses, the BB series. Gone are the fussy chromed pickup rings, the inlays are more streamlined and modern, but it still retains the familiar but not body shape and I think these are the best looking BBs in a while. My favourite which I wouldn't mind picking up is the BB734A. First bass in a while which has said "buy me". I'm also getting old so I think the burst looks best. Kill me now.
  11. Zelda - Breath of the Wild on the Switch is probably the best game I've ever played. Holy shit it's good.
  12. I went on a Nardwaur interview binge recently, which caused me to look up a lot of old school hip hop. Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous Had never listened to this before. A few absolute bangers. Hip Hop without any pretenses. All about being great at stuff such as making money and getting women, sprinkled with some sincere moments centered around the struggles of the hood. Big Pun - Capital Punishment Revisiting Big Pun. A few bloopers on this but when his verses are good, they're really good. A really cringe-worthy interlude involving 2 minutes of sex noises. Do you still get those?
  13. That album got me well into techno when it came out. Not really a fan of the stuff now, since I stopped taking eccies.
  14. Waters of Nazareth is fucking ridiculously dirty.
  15. My chum used to have one of those red head stocked Jap' re-issues. Lovely looking guitar (apart from the red head stock), but it had nothing going for it from a playability point of view. Shit neck, shit neck finish, shit wiring, weak ass pickups.
  16. until

  17. Jazzmasters have the balls rhythm circuit, but Jaguars go full balls with 4 switches (including the completely useless strangle) and two roller knobs. It's an abscessed bumhole of a design.
  18. I always forget if it's Jaguars or Jazzmasters that have balls switching. It really is balls and fucking pointless. Even the Mustang could be done with a simpler 3 way toggle - that out of phase option is a waste of everyones time.
  19. im gonna play my next gigs sober
  20. Probably a bit late to the party, but Silicon Valley is fucking yass. It seems to peter out a bit by season 4 though.
  21. @leespoons1 So he did have his own song after all!

  22. It means good. But I'm still only about half way through, so if it ends up being shite overall then I'll change that answer. The overall theme/concept for it is fantastic though! xx
  23. I don't know if you mean that it is good or bad.
  24. I've got a Mustang bridge in my Jazzmaster and it works fine. They're a good bit cheaper than a Staytrem. One thing I'll add about Jaguars is that the switching system is total balls. The rhythm circuit is muffled balls and having to turn off one switch and then turn on another switch just to change between pickups is utter balls, especially live. I removed the tone pot on my Mustang and replaced it with a 3 way.
  25. Last week
  26. Man, I was hovering over the "buy it now or best offer" on this one this morning on Ebay: The guy has switched out the bridge, pickups and put on a black plate, with £130 off the new price. I moved some money around (i.e. decided to put off paying my electric bill for a month), came back to it this afternoon, and it's been had. BOLLOCKS.
  27. Heaps of The Warlocks. Going to see them on Thursday to in fucking Sleazy's.
  28. The bridges really are spectacularly hopeless. The one on my Bass VI, the saddle screws vibrated out as I was playing it, the bottom 2 strings just flapped on to the neck, and the tiny screws became part of my carpet. Never seen again. StayTrem bridges are awesome though.
