    what i get from the doc is they were rock-n-roll biker speed freaks who decided to follow the fad and hit it big as punk rockers then lost the plot when they went new wave. interesting story and some great music

    Very much still in business as makers and they also have the largest (I think) music store here in Devon. They have made custom instruments for JPJ and make a line of signature guitars with Matt Bellamy of Muse. I had a custom-design Manson twin neck which amazingly held its value over the 15 years I owned it. There's a nice Manson fretless on Reverb at the moment I think...

    Ah, OK, so here's a better pic of a headstock. It is just a squiggle


    (Not very punk having a handmade custom bass is it? )

    The League... fantastic. The most aggressive, violence-laced swearing I've ever heard, especially on Snowman.

    I love the detective work on this site! No clue that was a Manson.

    And I'd be remiss if I didn't immediately think of something like this when I saw the pic of the singer, so...

  13. I love the challenge these threads produce. This one wasn't too hard. I just searched on the bassist's name and the word "basses" and the interview came right up. Mystery solved :)

    One does not simply stump Talkbass.
