Re: the Cult

Life is up and down. I saw them few years ago with The Mission in London when Killing Joke left before the tour...it was very good.

Re: Play Dead gigography

Unfortunately, not. I've just seen the old club which is a slum actually. I was occupied with my work too. But i'm talking to the former DJ and he told me the concert was fantastic because they were efficient to control the sound balance. They spend a good time because Play Dead members were friendl...

Re: New interview with Wiff.

Thank you ! Long, long and very interesting.
I think they had too much problems to produce their music on a normal rythm to allow the band to be stick in fanatics mind and earn enough money to live in a decent way.

Re: Play Dead gigography

Hi OX4, Unfortunately i wasn't there. Too Young. I'm trying to get some informations. I just know the concert was good. It was a club located in L'Hermitage Lorge, a small village beside a forest. It lasted 4 years and all local bands played there, most of them coming from Rennes, the french rock/ne...

Re: Sacrosanct- John Fryer vs Conny Plank

I don't remember the two Sacrosanct versions. Anyway, although Conny Plank productions are marked, they don't disturb me concerning other bands. But, I don't like his production on "Company of Justice" album. The sound is crushed, is lacking freshness and the bass is less easy to hear than...

I'm searching for a new bass to buy and i've read 4003 has a perfect rock sound but it's hard to play with. It's necessary to take off something on the bass to play "slap" for instance. Then, i'll take informations about 4001 one because it sounds perfect in "Into the fire" video...

I agree about the Pete Waddleton's precise and powerful way of using his bass guitar. I've looked to "Into the Fire" video and Pete W. seemed to play a Rickenbacker 4003 with an Ampeg amp...am i right ? What was the other bass guitar put behind him ?

I was really impressed seeing the live video in Oxford and showed it to some friends. The sister of one of them is still talking about t...
