Vlayman: “Midnight (I Started Drinking)”

Midnight (I Started Drinking)
c. 13 Vlayman

I can’t feel my body,
Can’t even feel my toes,
I can’t feel my body,
That’s just how it goes,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
Midnight 2 days before,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
And I’m gonna drink me some more.

Ch:
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I drank thru to the day light
Twice

I’m pretty sure sure that she left me,
I’m pretty sure someone else know,
I’m pretty sure that she left me,
That’s just how it goes,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
Midnight 2 days before,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
And I’m gonna drink me some more.

Ch:
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I drank thru to the day light
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I drank thru to the day light
Twice

I started drinkin’ at midnight,
Midnight 2 days before,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
And I’m gonna drink me some more.

Ch:
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I drank thru to the day light
It just ain’t right
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I started drinkin’ at midnight,
I drank thru to the day light
Twice

Mo’ re the 664

In answer to a question at lostoverture.com:

Well, thing is like 50+ years old.

The wires coming thru the hinge had been previously repaired, I’d guess 20+ years ago, and the repairist had put putty in the hinge to hold ’em in place, what was stupid because the idear is they should flex as the mic is turned in relationship to the handle part.

The Amphenol jack crumbled after I plugged it in a few times.

Part of the wiring problem was that the hinge screw, what is a cool design involving a a tube-nut that fits into the hinge and holds it steady, was missing and replaced with a nut & bolt.

Finally, the thing was so well-used that the hinge couldn’t be tightened down, what left it all floppy like Dolly Partons tits.

So I hadda disassemble the thing, chip out the putty, re-wire it, replace the jack (I used a cannon connector I had laying ’round from another project and a short length of mic cable), use a hinge screw offa broken Slimaire I had laying around, and squeeze the hinge tighter (not easy – it’s actually a cast zinc body) and put some vinyl innit to tighten it.

EHX Bass Metaphors

These things  get mixed reviews but I used it two nights ago atta audition into another guy’s little 40 watt or so S/S Kustom bass amp.
This thing is like three preamp sections that you can use in parallel:
1. straight pre (gain only);
2. Distortion pre;
3. EQ pre.

So I started with the EQ section, added the straight-pre, and then put a touch of distortion on top (has its own switch) for leads.

It also has a master volume, and a compressor that’s just on or off, but I gotta say, this thing really made a shite amp sound good, and made it very easy to play with a light touch, slap-n-pop, etc.

Wanna see inside a EV 664 I repaired?

Aiighty, so I bought a EV 664 offa the e-Bog, and after doing the dooshie-seller tap-dance and getting a full refund and keeping the mic (seller wanted me to pay the return shipping on this heavy mofo so I fought ’em), I decided to try and fix it

Took me 5 hours but I kludged it, and here’s a photo gallery:

The Huingry Drunx: “Love You (I Can’t)”

Love You (I Can’t)
c. ’13 The Hungry Drunx

When I look in your eyes I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna lie, I don’t wanna do anything
When I hear you cry I can barely sigh
I don’t wanna lie, I don’t feel any anything

When I see your mother, I don’t think of another
I don’t even bother, I don’t wanna do anything
When I see your brother I don’t run for cover
I don’t even bother, I don’t feel any anything

I can’t love you 3x
like you want me to



When I look in your eyes I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna lie, I don’t feel any anything

I can’t love you 3x
like you want me toq

Del-Lord’s latest

Elvis Club is the first new one inna long time, feat. the Dictators’ Scott Kemper and TOMB’s own Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (J. Jett, S. Earle, tons of production) along with the original drummer (Frank Funaro of Cracker).

It’s great to hear roots rock done so right, and with awesome production.

4.5/5 olives.

On Blood

From a TOMB thread:

“Man, I love Blood, BTW.

Blues All Night, Piety, Odessey, Memphis Sessions, a cuppla live records, Tales of Capt. Black, Electric Lady, Black & Blues …. I actually have a couple more.

I really love Blues Preacher and the Third Rail record with Bernie Worrell and it’s follow up, Blue Blood.

Sometimes his voice can be a bit rough, but the guitar is amazing, the accompaniments stellar and the grooves … I don’t really recall him ever being “too tight”.”
