Looks like all that long hair stuff was driving those good folks crackers... :laugh2:
Is that a pun? :laugh2:

Had many a beer bottle and jeer thrown at me while walking down the road in them days.

The irony is the same crackers that wanted to jump me in high school, had long hair, smoked pot and were listening to The Wall ten years later.

G'day all.

Foggy and cool here, but considering the date a pretty good day.

Another of Henry's tunes we recorded in Kevin's basement in 2008. Guitar is the left-hand one from my avatar through Kevin's Fender Pro-Sonic.

And since this be tele-tuesday here is one from about 1988 in Steve's basement. Mike is doing the solo on a tele. Don't know what he is playing through. I am playing my Artisan through an original tweed deluxe. Except for the lead is a live take. A friend Pat Recob played bass, and a friend Bernie Heaney played pinnaner.

To think that Mike, Steve and I started playing together in 86. That band lasted till 90. Steve, Henry and I stated playing together about 93, and Mike came back on board in 97. We lost Steve in 2011 to cancer but still gather near every Thursday.
Lots of history in our clown car.

Hope Ma smiles on us all.
Got a lot of good stuff Charlie. :applause:

I didn't give a shit either until they wanted to bash me with something. :laugh2:

But they learned to fear me cause I was obviously drug crazed and didn't give a shit. I used to climb on the roof of the school and the security guards would chase me. How d'ya like me now fuckers!

They could never get close enough to identify me. One time they got to the roof (at one point it's like three stories up) and I ran to a part that was a single story (it was built into a slope) jumped off..ran inside...switched jackets with a buddy of mine..ran through the school, (the bell had just rang for school to let out so the halls were jammed with kids) two flights down then out the back, and walked out of the campus hidden behind a bus that was leaving, following it out.

They called the unidentified terrorist "The Bird Man". :laugh2:

I also set a record for the number of days absent my senior year. :laugh2:

How did they not know it was me? :shock:

It's great that the archives are open, but why only now? But never mind the quibbling (or bollocks) - keep 'em coming :)

And - a personal favour - you could post The Havens again? I wanted to play it to Heidi, but of course I could never find it in the thread again...

choice guitar for a bar brawl
Isn't that what Keef used to say - if attacked by a fan on stage, he'd deck them - with his Tele?

They are on soundcloud, and until Sid posted from there did not realize we could do it.

Here is the vid I made to share the tune with the k nights.
And cause I am not sure if I shared this; https://soundcloud.com/cmh6122%2F01-track-1 here is demo of it I recorded on my Boss BR-1180

I have a question for the synthesists among us:
A year or so ago, a good friend got me a Novation Launchkey 49 keyboard because he thought it would be good for my musical development.

It came with instructions to download the included "Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station and
V Station virtual instruments and 4GB of Loopmasters samples along with one of four VSTs from XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys."

At the time, all I had was a droid tablet and a Linux PC, and Ableton never bothered to write code for either of those OSs, so my attempts to make sounds with this excellent controller were futile.

Now I have a good used MacBook Air and a decent HP PC running Win 10, but I lost the paperwork for the free download.

Do you cats have any ideas?

I don't believe in saying "thanks in advance," in case someone may think I'm being presumptuous, so instead I will just say
Thanks for even reading this.
