Zzzzzz...

Recommended Posts

If anyone is even remotely interested in the band I'm referring to:

That's from this past weekend. I'm the guy doing the Johnny Ramone hop and Pete Townshend windmill in the first little bit of the video.

 

Not a big deal if no one's interested, but I thought some of the regulars here might find it fun to watch a bit of a "window into the life" of another regular.

Great Cliff - curious to know what style your solo stuff is - or do you prefer not to be pigeonholed? I'm recording a load of old songs (and new) on my BR80 and loving it although could do with a proper bass or lead player instead of playing all the parts - I'm really just a Strummer!

Best described as old time country with melody style of Bob Dylan and Neil Young.

I listened to this just last week - good old Beeb - what would we do without it [thumbup]

I've lived in Holland for 21 years now and I can honestly say that the BBC has played a major role in keeping me sane [lol]

Are you from Belfast Irish Rover?

Born in Dublin, grew up in England. I bummed around the world for a few years and ended up settling here in Holland more by accident than design.

Just had a killer gig with my old punk rock band, the Huntingtons (we're back together intermittently), in Baltimore, MD this past weekend.

 

Man, that was quite a gig. The audience loved you guys. B)

 

I begin recording my solo record on September 12th (using my most excellent Recording King RAJ-122 for that).

 

I imagine that's going to come out a bit different than the video. ;)

Just curious mate a fella round the corner from me lives in Holland and plays in Moke...

No worries Dodger, perfectly legitimate question.

Couldn't help noticing you're a bit of a night owl, late shift or just in from the pub? [wink]

 

I have a vague memory of seeing Moke (on TV) at Pinkpop a few years ago, I thought they were all Dutch, but then I don't exactly have my finger on the pulse these days.

Great stuff Cliff, though your hair looks too normal for a punk revival, haha. I am looking forward to hearing some of your new stuff.

 

Yeah...haha...I will say, though, that the bands from the 90's Ramonescore scene we were a part of always had normal dude hair. This makes it easier all these years later to still look the part!

Really not much happening around here at the moment.....

 

Did anyone else notice that the AJ-45 ME has been elected to Guitar Player magazines "Hall of fame"?

http://www.epiphone.com/News/Features/Features/2015/Guitar-Player-Elects-AJ-45ME-to-Hall-of-Fame.aspx

I did search the GP website but, aside from the hall of fame awards page and Epiphones own sales blurb from NAMM 2015, there is no mention of the AJ-45 ME so I'm a tad curious as to how it got elected.

 

Interestingly, for those of us in Europe at least, after a 5 month hiatus Thomann are stocking the AJ-45 ME again. There are no reviews on the Dutch language site and only one on the English version, that is from a "MickS" who bought the guitar in April, polished up the satin finish himself and loves it to bits. Could that be anyone we know? [wink]
