    Cat Power- Cross Bones Style

    Hi. In relation to discussing Cat Power / Chan Marshall in the non-trad covers thread,* here is her song, Cross Bones Style. I absolutely love this song. Not entirely sure, but maybe the drummer and the guitarist from The Dirty Three (Jim White & Mick Turner) are the ones actually on the...

    Non traditional covers of famous songs.

    Hi. Me too. I first came across her when I heard the song Cross Bones Style, and that sent me searching for it and who created it. Think I might post it in Music to Your Ears. Edit: done - https://www.tdpri.com/threads/cat-power-cross-bones-style.1112977/ Pax/ Dean

    What’s is Your Real-World Minimum Pedal Board?

    Hi. Not quite. My main at home amp is a Vox AC4-HW1. That’s the hand wired one with a bigger cabinet, a greenback and a ‘hot / cool’ switch that cuts out the tone stack. Tone wise, it is flippin’ amazing. Not a lot of headroom, but at home volume it has a nice, wide spectrum, from clean...

    Hi. Black Burger. Riverside Market, Christchurch. This was really good. Smashed Wagyu Patty / Cheddar Cheese / Pickles / Grizzly Bun / Black Burger Sauce. I forget the beer now (was a week ago), but it was recommended by the fella at Canterbury Brewers Collective and it was great too. So, if...

    Hi. First noodle after coming back to Japan from my holiday thing. Mosky Golden Horse Klon clone. Forgotten it sounds half decent into my wee THR10. Pax/ Dean

    Hiya. Sorted, for the cameras at least. The R2’s covering is just sorta held on by gummy residue from the darkroom tape that used to cover it. Pax/ Dean

    Hi. Thanks. Not so bad where we are; on the Kanto Plain, but well above the local rivers. Folk in hilly places & those near the coast taking a hit though. Just watched a bunch of footage of landslides and missing roofs. Pax/ Dean

    Hiya. Hey, I have an R2 as well. Used it so much the covering fell off. Have an L too, with the uncoupled 25mm + the 25mm viewfinder. Pax/ Dean

    Hi. New hottie.* Only noticed the name after taking the photo. Pax/ Dean * what we call hot water bottles in New Zealand (& Australia). Don’t know about other places. Bought to take back to Japan, cos, winter’s coming…

    Hi. Meter reading off my palm with thumb up, and the thumb up meant open one stop - that’s what I used to often do, before LCD screens and histograms. Pax/ Dean

    What brand of boots do you wear?

    Hi. Vegetable dyed leather, I believe. And the green stitching helps. To be fair, I don’t wear them that much. Just off and on. Which is probably why they look so good for shoes that turned 29 years old two months ago. That and the beeswax. Did them over last night in fact. Pax/ Dean

    What brand of boots do you wear?

    Hi. Last Footwear Company. From Christchurch, New Zealand. Traditionally made to last. The company didn’t. Although I believe the name has been continued (reused) for a regular shoe store. The original founder learnt leatherwork / shoe making / cobbling in prison I think, and started the...

    Telecaster Hot Takes - What Are Yours?

    Hi. Okay, I have read everything now, and also looked up ‘hot take,’ and I think I now have a general idea what the expression means. So, that said and after reading everything, my hot take is that I’m not the only one who started into this not understanding the term… :-) Pax/ Dean

    Telecaster Hot Takes - What Are Yours?

    Thanks. I’ll go back and look. Something odd happened and I thought the thread was only a page long. Combo of using a phone, wearing gloves, blurry just awake eyes and misplaced reading glasses I suspect.* Pax/ Dean * i.e. me :-)

    Big Brands That Never Offer Major Components Made By Other Builders.

    Hi. Same. There’s no inherent reason or necessity why this would be true. Even if we could objectively define ‘better’ - for example, some might feel a much more precisely cast or milled Tele bridge is better, yet others might prefer cheap stamped plate, saying it produces better results...

    Do Big Moments Define You or Does the Day to Day Define You?

    Hi. To be serious for a moment (it’s a struggle), ‘define’ is a difficult word here. It could mean ‘form’ or ‘shape’ an individual’s character, or it could mean that which others draw upon to form their image of an individual’s personality. So, for the former, I’d say all of life defines...

    The # of Pedals by Type You Currently Own? In Use / On the Shelf?

    The # of Pedals by Type You Currently Own? In Use / On the Shelf?

    Hi. This is what I would expect. Tone changing pedals such as all the various types of boost, mild overdrive, heavier overdrive, distortion, fuzz, etc., all come in various kinds of circuit forms. That’s a big range of difference, ranging from major to subtle. By the time you add guitars...
