My old band!

Post by devnulljp » Sat Jan 18, 2020 8:34 am

Forgot I had digitised some old demos of the band I played bass in as a teen in the 80s. Found them on my drive and stuck em up on Soundcloud the other day.
Figured I'd share.
Caveats:
1. It was the 80s, so chorus is king
2. I was 17, give me a break
3. Closest thing to fuzz on there is the Boss HM-2 I traded to the guitar player for his BF-2.

It's all Boss -- guitarist's using a DS-1, HM-2, CE-2, and a DSD-2 digital sampler delay.
I had a BF-2, OC-2 and I vaguely remember a CE-2.

Guitar player had an Ibanez Artist double cut and some kind of a 100 W mos-fet Marshall stack, which he ran clean with pedals in front
Bass was a Tokai PBass with EMGs into a Peavey MkIII or IV and a 2x15 on the earlier one, and a 78 Aria SB700 into a Trace Elliot GP11 with an 8x10 fridge in the last one.
Drummer had this huge beautiful Sonor double kick kit.

Man, dat chorus!
I can jump you a decade forward, to 1991, with my first band's first single, which I bizarrely just Googled this very second and found online. Still the only song I know of that rhymes "emerging" with "elderly virgin":
