    What’s in the mail? Vinyl, CDs, etc.

    I’m anxiously waiting for my vinyl copy of the new Hum record. I have the digital version. And if it sounds that good in my car, I can’t wait to hear how it sounds on vinyl. For those of you waiting on the Wildflowers reissue, you’re in for a treat. Listened to the vinyl this weekend, and it...

    Any Shoegaze Fans?

    This is another band that definitely had some shoegaze influences. They weren’t around long, but I listen to their EP constantly. They were called Mellonova.

    Any Shoegaze Fans?

    Totally agree with this. This album had the potential to be a real letdown, but it came out amazing. I saw them twice, touring for this record, and they sounded fantastic. Apparently, they’re in the studio now, working on a new album. Can’t wait.

    another U2 reish

    This may be my favorite song of theirs, which I first heard on the Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack. All That You Can’t Leave Behind is a great album. Hard to believe it’s been around 20 years.

    Any Shoegaze Fans?

    Big shoegaze fan, especially Slowdive. Loved their last album, and I’m excited that they’re working on a new one. I’m never quite sure if shoegaze is the same as dream pop, but I really dig some of those bands, like Cocteau Twins. Beach House is a cool, more recent shoegaze/dream pop band.

    One Hit Wonders

    Was going to post this one. Despite the "dated" references at the end, I think this is one of the greatest pop songs ever written. Awesome song. I love that whole album.

    Would you buy an SG or a Firebird?

    It’s great, especially after I added a roller bridge. I really dig that guitar.

    Would you buy an SG or a Firebird?

    It’s funny, because I wanted a Pelham Blue Firebird VII for years. But when I happened upon the Tikibird in my local store, I immediately dug it. I got the SG a few months ago. It does look great in Pelham Blue. I also really like the 50th anniversary Pete Townsend SG, which is white with P90s.

    Would you buy an SG or a Firebird?

    Like this?;) Clearly, I couldn’t choose between the two.

    What is the best online source for vinyl LPs?

    I get a lot from Elusive Disc, if my local shop doesn’t have it.

    Took a great shot of the "Gear Corner" - share yours too!

    My corner has gotten some additions and subtractions, since my last post. Added the SG and Blueshawk. I also redid my amp setup with two lovely Carr combos.

    Analog Delay Recommendations

    The ML2 is a great pedal. I still have one in my collection of delays. The only "downsides" to that pedal are the power requirements and the modulation might be too subtle for some folks. Still a beautiful sounding delay though.

    Analog Delay Recommendations

    I think the Deluxe Memory Man Tap Tempo may be a good fit for your needs. Fantastic sounding repeats, lush modulation, runs on 9 volts, a gain knob to adjust the volume, and the oscillation (which you can access by holding the tap switch) is the most musical and useable I’ve heard in an analog...

    Show Your Pedalboard: 2020

    I’d pull the Velcro off with needle nose pliers. And I would use Goo B Gone to get the residue off.

    Hercules Guitar stands Beware!!!!

    Same issue here, that I noticed recently. Not only is the height adjuster sticky, but so is the handle for the adjustment screw for the legs. I'll email Hercules, but I'm not expecting much. My ex-girlfriend bought me the stand about 10 years ago. So I have no receipt. It's a shame, because the...

    Prince borrows some guitars then breaks them

    This can be said about, literally, every iconic musician. As far as boundaries he pushed...he was a MASSIVE pop star, that blended rock, jazz, funk, and R&B in a way nobody else had. He was also the rare pop star that could play multiple instruments extremely well. He wrote massive hits for...

    Prince borrows some guitars then breaks them

    I believe that was Carlos Boozer’s house.

    Stereo tremolo - smallish footprint...

    I have the first version, and it sounds great. And for an analog pedal, it doesn’t have much, if any excess noise. From what I understand, the current version sounds even better. The new one also has Harmonic trem, which mine doesn’t have. As far as I know it’s true stereo. It has stereo inputs...

    Stereo tremolo - smallish footprint...

    Was going to post the same thing. Love mine. Analog, stereo ins and outs, the ability to pan the signal, and a preset, all in a "normal" size enclosure. Great pedal.

    R.I.P. Malik B (formerly of the Roots)

    “Water” is a GREAT song, as is “100% Dundee”. Love the keys on “100% Dundee” too.

    R.I.P. Malik B (formerly of the Roots)

    So sad. I know he battled addiction for a long time (though that isn’t necessarily what the cause of death was). And ultimately, that was why he was no longer a regular part of the band. That being said, I’m glad that they didn’t completely cut ties with him, and he still would do cameos on...

    Guest appearances

    Absolutely! Craig Ross is criminally underrated. That guy is such a great guitar(and bass) player. :beer
