London TBers - wanna come to my gig?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Mike Flynn, Dec 2, 2004.


  1. Hi Peeps,

    I know this is a little naughty but what the hey, it's all in the name of spreading some bass around...me and my wicked, funky band <b><a href=http://www.jascomusic.com>Jasco</a></b> are playing <b>tomorrow night in Camden, Friday December 3rd,</b> at a little club called The Mint Bar. Check out the 'Happenings' page on the website where there's a map and stuff - we'll be on around 9.30 - it would be a pleasure to meet some of you.

    Thanks for stopping by

    Mike

    I was there and it was really nice! You TB Londoners should try to come down and see them next time they play, it's worth it ;)
     
  9. was pretty cool- flawlessly tight rhythm section, and your singer is a bit of a character.

    only problem was your bass tone out front- I had trouble discerning all the notes you were playing, which is a shame as I know how good you are from all the clips you've posted on here-
    the stage was quite boomy and a bit less lows and more high mids might have helped.



    (BTW, dunno what planet the bloke on the door was on- drugs are bad, kids...)

    ... and I thought I was the only TB'er in the audience! I would have been cool to meet... I brought the Nordstrand with me!

    Anyway, next time I hope!

  13. Hi MTR & Ari, thanks again for coming down - and thanks for letting me know about the sound problems - I don't know what happend to the mix half way through but I definitely suffereing on stage too. I think it all just got too loud - which is weird for a funk band - it really isn't the greatest sound system there and I think we were pushing its dynamic range too hard, that and my bass was bleeding over into the other instruments - I also had a few gripes with my sound but it was all going by a bit quick to fix it - I appreciate you telling me though because it's something I'll make sure dpesn't happen again. We played well, but everyone was telling us to play longer when we did a good hour - oh well, can't please em all eh?

    As for the doorman - I'm afraid I can't make any excuses for him (I don't know him), they are a funny bunch there - I think there's a bit of London wide-boy bollox going on with the owners, no comment on whether they take drugs or not... :eyebrow:
