Re small amps, again

Just posting about ’em at TOMB, probably repeating myself:

I have a Pro, Jr. and really like it, use it for practices and recording.

Same with a Electar 10, what compliments the Pro, Jr. for recording, sounding a little different.

I’ve been looking for a Terror used, but they are more’n I wanna pay.

I have a 1960 Rickie M8E that’s awesome, Neil Young “Down By The River”/Keef “Brown Sugar”, Page “Custard Pie” tones … never leaves the house.

S/S I really like the little Vox Pathfinder and the Tech 21 Trademark 10- they record very well.

I also have a Peavey Audition with their “transtube” that is usable, especially for the high-gain sounds.

I have a couple others that are 1-trick ponies (Kustom, Mini Mouse, Harmony) as well as some of the little 1 w. S/S things like the Zues and the tweed Epi, a First act …

I have a Marlboro 25 w. 12″ bass amp, also. records aiight, especially when combined with a DI.

Vlayman: “Common Sense”

Common Sense
c. ’14 Vlayman

You think you, mebbe made up yer mind
Don’t make no diff’rence, you change it alla the time

CH: So you’re on the fence
No one ever accused you of having common sense
So you’re on the fence
No one ever accused you of being honest

You say now, you think you have come to a decision
Mebbe you have, if somebody finally put the fix in

Professionally you have to come on down on one side or the other
Personally, it’a all about the cash in yer p-pocket (and we know it)

Muso Ad of the day

Narcissistic Vocalist Wanted (Central, CT)

Narcissistic vocalist wanted for a rock band out of central Connecticut. You must have a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, blatant need for admiration, and a total lack of empathy. If you show up for practice on-time, you’re fired. If you plan on helping move equipment in and out of the venue, you’re fired on the spot. You must be constantly sick, or be able to otherwise provide some sort of excuse as to why you’re not 100% at all times (which is… at all times). You must have a sense of entitlement and unreasonable expectations for favorable treatment at venues and by all people graced with your presence (even though you’ve never left the basement in your music career). We would also sincerely appreciate if you were exploitative to everyone you encounter, including us (your band-mates). If you’re not taking advantage of people, you’re not for us. You must be completely arrogant and let people know how awesome you are at all times. And for the love of God, please call your fans “mother —–ers” and “—holes” on stage… they like that kind of stuff (don’t listen to the nay-sayers). You must have hundreds (if not thousands) of ideas of what we “need to do”, but do absolutely nothing to actually move those ideas forward. If someone writes a vocal melody/lyric that sounds good, you must change it so that it doesn’t conflict with your inability to accept input or the fact that you just might not have the absolute best idea for any given situation/musical piece. And lastly, you must be completely incoherent, a terrible speller, and have the grammar of a three year old (even though your main job is to write stories & lyrics to communicate with people).

If this is you, we’re looking for you!!!!!!!!!

The Hungry Drunx: “Devastated”

Devastated
c. ’14 The Hungry Drunx

Like Henry Fonda thru the bat-wing doors, I walked in the tavern
lookin’ for a little more, I said,
“Bartender! gimme a pour like she said
make it long and make it deep and keep it comin’, and keep it comin’.”

And I always believed being happy’s just so over-rated
But I confess I never thought I’d be so devastated

Like Gary Cooper in the sun walkin’ on the dusty streets
I knew that I had won and I said,
“Bartender! gimme some like she said
make it long and make it deep and keep it comin’, and keep it comin’.”

Like John Wayne charging thru the pass on his worn out steed
I kept moving real fast and I said,
“Bartender! fill my glass like she said
make it long and make it deep and keep it comin’, and keep it comin’.”
