  5. OC3 is polyphonic and has a 'drive' setting - OC2 is not and does not. That's the main difference. Look: OC2 http://www.guitariste.com/forums/photos/19254-1-big.jpg OC3 http://www.stevesmusiccenter.com/BossOC-3Big.jpg
  6. I too support the Boss OC3. I use one myself with a Big Muff & it sounds sick. Also has seperate bass & guitar ins and polyphony, which I understand is rare and special. Well, it is to me.
  7. Occasional Monsters on DVD! Occasional Monsters is now officially available on DVD. If you like computers, you can go here and get yourself a copy for just 9 (that DOES include postage and packaging). That way you don't have to deal with the hardship of having to walk somewhere within a certain timeframe. If you like shops, it's also available from One-Up. The DVD features: - Out-takes! - Deleted scenes! - Theatrical trailer! - Directors' commentary! - Production stills! Plus some pretty cool artwork. More details available from www.occasionalmonsters.co.uk and www.donsidepictures.co.uk. Thanks.
  8. Probably. You could argue that you paid to see the whole film two months ago & were deprived of the ending, so now they owe you. Failing that, push someone over and run into the darkened cinema. They'll never find you. Until the film ends and you have to leave, that is.
  9. It's being screened twice in one day, this Sat 6th December: 11.30am at the Belmont, 11.30pm at the Cameo Picturehouse in Edinburgh. DVDs will also be available from that day, so if you don't have the power to get up & walk to a cinema in time for 11.30am then you could always go to www.donsidepictures.co.uk at any time you like (from Saturday) and buy the film from there.
  10. Thanks for the support! We were very pleased with how many people turned up & how well the film seemed to go down with everyone. Our apologies for the technical problems. We aim to arrange a second showing in Aberdeen sometime in the next two months, and we guarantee the whole film will be shown at that time. High-quality DVDs will also be appearing sometime before the end of the year. Watch this space: Donside Pictures or this one Occasional Monsters Thanks again.
  11. I agree that that sort of thing is extremely lame, but then I don't think that's necessarily representative of 8bit music in general. Most 8bit acts I'm aware of (individuals, mostly) program music for a certain platform, take the Game Boy / NES / whatever on stage & then play the music through it. Of course, this mainly just involves hitting start and letting it run its course, not much in the way of real 'performance', but that seems to me to be very far away from the shitty ironic posturing described above. I suppose what I'm getting at is, is the above also considered deplorable? And if so, why?
  12. I can't tell if that's a dig at my post, or if you're joining me in a making a dig at the original post. I'm a bit confused by the anti-8bit sentiment in this thread. As I understand it, '8bit' commonly refers to music that is composed and performed on original outdated computer hardware, most often the Game Boy, NES or C64, taking into account the inherent limitations of each system and often trying to do something interesting with it, push said system to its limits, etc. I don't see that Triforce belt buckles / bad haircuts / prop keyboards necessarily come into it... or am I in the dark about a 'new' crop of pseudo-8bit acts?
  13. That cartridge was released around 10 months ago and, as far as I can tell, people are still making 8bit music.
  14. Los Caballeros are also playing. Two-man surf attack. We are ready.
