Goin' a bit nostalgic here heck, what a band! Ok, old man speaking, well off the grid, but bloody hell they're good.

I recently stumbled (ahem) across a digital recording of their Glastonbury set from 2017, went for it this evening, and strangely enough OH suggested that I might like to turn it down a bit...

Shades of Steve Vai, even a hint of Man in there.

Rattlesnake is pure highway cruise material...

Cheers muchly for the pointer.

Having that many, you should feel ashamed. Especially with duplicates!

We had the S&G one in our family.

​​​​​I honestly can't walk past a record player being thrown out without saving it and fixing it, it's becoming an issue 😂

This is the latest one I've acquired (number 21), an absolute beauty. Needs fixing as the turntable doesn't work but that's no biggie.

Does every man need a hobby or do I have a problem? what are your hobbies or obsessions ?
I would someday like to get an EMT turntable. Don't feel the urge to part with the dosh for one right now.

When I read those posts I thought I might be dreaming about Thomas the Tank Engine for a brief moment (again).

I had never heard of EMT before today ; An RP3 is on my bucket list, if it pans out and OH gets wind of it, it will likely be the the final item on my bucket list.

But the EMT that I <insert search engine here>'d earlier had a tone arm to die for with...

I love my RP3 so much so I'm biased, project debut carbon are pretty damned good too though. My brother had an LP 12 when he was cashed up but far too young to appreciate it. On another brother note, my big brother just got second place in the world beard and moustache championship in Antwerp. What a dead set legend
