  1. Nah - I've got him. also Tony Booth who died last month and I think forgot all about...
  2. Apart from all the complaints of sexual abuse?
  3. Your first ever gig in Aberdeen?

    My first gig in Aberdeen was the Goo Goo Dolls in 2006 - also Buffalo Sabres fans, also meh.
  4. your gear.

    Final solution - Helix LT and Yamaha DXR 10. Doesn't sound 100% like the amps it's supposed to, but between 85 - 95% is enough for me. Does the valve amp thing where you turn down the volume on the guitar and the amp cleans up which is cool. Effects are good and you can route them whatever way you want. I can replicate my Eventide Space and huge delays and the fuzzes are well modelled too. Probably not for everyone but it definitely works.
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-41199128 Usually your Tories love hundreds of years of tradition...
  6. Ace-ic....

    The depot is in Dunfermline - it;s the big huge warehouse with Amazon written on it that you drive past just before the Forth Road Bridge...
  7. your gear.

    Any roller bridge should work fine - I used a roller with tusq saddles on my jazzy - the only thing I had to do was screw it right down so it didnt rock back and forwards like a jazzy bridge. Mastery are affa dear but they do work...
  8. your gear.

    if the gig has monitors straight into the board, if not get something like the Yamaha DXR 10 and use that. We don't have a gig til the 16th of October so plenty of time to fuck about and find the right solution.
  9. your gear.

    I bought a Line 6 Helix. Probably won't sound as good as a Valve Amp and Pedals, but that is massively outweighed by carrying a lot less stuff. #nevercarryinganamporcabagain
  10. Pet Hates!

    Watching Eugene and Duglas trying to hit those Fleetwood Mac harmonies will be entertaining if nothing else... Sorry - no matter who's doing it it's just another tribute act for me. McFleetwood played Newmachar in July, I wasn't interested in that either.
  11. Pet Hates!

    I'm aware
  12. Pet Hates!

    It's been a while innit, and all it took was me sabotaging any chance of ever getting a gig off APA...

    I wish riders were a negligible cost. We're putting on a decent sized band in a couple of weeks* and when you count in accommodation and food costs the rider is nearly 50% on top of the performance fee. Now there are different levels and scopes for performance fees and riders - but the bands aren't paying for accommodation and food because it's either in the rider or it's built into their fee - but it costs more to bring a band in than put a local band on, it just does. I'm not sure how you can say that there aren't any relevant or good enough bands to fill these slots though - unless you've listened to every support band that's been booked you're taking a fair old swing in the dark there - they could all be terrible? *shameless plug - come and see this gig and help me pay for it, also it'll be fucking great!! https://tinyurl.com/y774lchr
