Re: The Lucksmiths

Sunlight in a Jar is the best car-singalong song!!
Haven't heard the new album, would very much like to. Seems good judging on the reviews I have read so far.

Jack names the planets after you, Jack names the planets after you.. This thread got the chorus off the Ash song stuck in my head! I read somewhere it was a reference to some book (which I forgot). Been a long long while since I last listened to Ash..

Re: Brilliant at Breakfast

Whoa. Don't know whether it was a February thing, but you all have been very kind, thanks for all the love! It certainly means a lot for a bunch of fellows recording in a tiny bedroom on tiny PC speakers :D . The height of stupidity that was, posting about my own band and typing the wrong Myspace ad...

Brilliant at Breakfast

http://www.myspace.com/brilliantatbreakfast

We are recording like 3 more songs at the moment (and also re-recording one of the songs on myspace as well) and afterwards we'll go mix them.

Would love to have comments (either on the songs or even just to say hello). :)

The "I just made a song, do you want to listen?" post.

A new song for my (hitherto nonexistent) project called Brilliant at Breakfast. This is just the rough version (I just wanted to hear what it would sound like), hence the lousy sound quality & equally lousy drum machine sound. http://www.sendspace.com/file/buhuup I'm going to work on the arrangement...

Re: CD inlay printing

Yeah, digital printing is nifty (and loads cheaper if you are only printing a small number of copies - ie. less than like 1000 - compared to offset printing).

Re: Bass Guitars

+1 recommendationizing for the P-J configuration, but you don't necessarily need to have it on a P-bass - I have it on my Jazz, it's awesome. I love having the ability to dial out the jazz pickup and be left with lovely beefy P-bass sounds when needed. Whoa, thanks a lot for the recommendations peo...

precision vs jazz bass

Hello all, I am getting a Squier soon (can't afford Fenders). Can anyone please advise me whether I should choose a Precision or a Jazz bass? I don't have lots of money so this bass would be for practice, recording *and* live shows. I play with a pick; nothing fancy (no slapping, tapping, or suchlik...

Re: Bass Guitars

I own a Ibanez GSRM20 copy (with a more narrow neck though), which I bought second-hand really cheap a couple of years ago. The sound is not that bad, considering the price, only the truss rod is getting more an more messed up, so I have to keep adjusting the action and all. Guess it's time to save ...

Re: melodicas...

I own a real cheapo Yamaha melodica, which is a wee bit out of tune (like 1/8 or 1/16 too high or something). I dont think people will actually notice it live, but I don't feel like recording anything with it. On cleaning the melodica.. mine can be opened so I can clean the inside, no idea if it's t...
