  1. hey steve
    saw your appearence on SOP, i was expecting a little longer but even so it was cool, loved your tone! Really gotta get me a 5'er fretless with lines, i like my fretless 4, but its not giving me all i want, and i enjoy playing fretless so much more then fretted, oh well, all things come to those who wait, we'll see what the bass centre has when i come see u there :p
    do u play fretless exclusivly, or do you have a fretted for a certain situation?

    Hi Si,

    I've not seen the show yet, as it was on while I was soundchecking for my gig in Milton Keynes supporting the 21st Century Schizoid Band... various people I know taped it, so I'm sure I'll see it soon enough.. it remains to be seen if I'll become the granny's favourite and be doing a tour of old people's homes early next year yet or not... :D

    Glad you liked the sound though - amazing that it came across on those little TV speakers... LOL

    BTW, the gig with the Schizoid band went really well - they are fantastic, not to be missed. Jakko's voice is amazing, and the original guys are playing really well...

    cheers

    I've played in old peoples homes and I've played in a prison. Guess which one is the easier gig.

    Bugger, I missed it!
    I've never known anyone on Songs of Praise before, actually I've never watched it. Maybe that's why? Hmm.

    Howard,

    you didn't miss much - I've seen it now and I was audible for about a minute, and on screen for about 8 seconds... :D

    Not knowing anyone who's been on SOP is probably a positive thing... ;)

    hey, don't knock it, it's better than a regular slot on crimestoppers!
