Nice Jazzmaster. Is that surf green? Playing a power plant huh? I hope it wasn't operational at the time. Big Grin

The Jazzmaster is Inca Silver. The plant is supposed to be non-operational but we were told the wall behind us was live. The plant was used for a protracted fight sequence in the film THE ONE with Jet Li, as well as Playstation and Budweiser commercials.

Most people are too confined on thinking that gigs should be in clubs and regular stages. A gig like this is much more interesting! Looks nice, wish I could´ve been there.

I bet you weren't worried about not having enough power for your equipment though.

What's the Peavey doing over there?! Mad

The Peavy is for the drum/bass machine and the sax with a delay pedal. Were using humans now but having problems with their egos.

Great to see the sax in there? It would be an interesting place for a gig. Looks like a huge space. How were the accoustics?

"How were the accoustics?" - I was wondering too. Looks like a big space with hard flat walls - lotsa' reverb?

Hey there's Danny's Jazzmaster again. The acoustics were as you would imagine a room with concrete floors and walls, could have left the reverb tank home. My friend Stew walked around the whole building video taping while we played. The sound floated through the building without getting too muddy. We're hoping to get another chance to play there this year.

This is a funny idea with the drum machine!

I think it works!

And the machine doesn`t need something to eat or a sleeping place!

Very nice Jazzmaster!!!

And, I know that Douglas is a great guitar player!

Thanks Ralf! The Jazzmaster is now in Danny's hands and we have Don Boomer of the Seeds on drums and are working with dp Dave Pike on bass, and Rob & Billy of the Detonators. Big surf. A far cry from the machine.

"Powerhouse" is that the same as the Raymond Scott tune that they use in all the Warner Bros cartoons? You know, whenever there is some sort of factory or assembly-line scene...

I wish I could get back in there, I am always seeing the space in films and commercials. I never heard the song Powerhouse except the one used in cartoons.

Peavey amp and Fender P.A. Shouldn't it be the opposite? Big Grin

I have much of that night on video but I haven't managed to edit it in 4 years. The Peavey is just for the drum machine. It is loud and hey, it was free.
