i'm a bass player really. at least that's how my band history began, playing gigs proper and doing little tours up and down england. i got into music through going on a government funded course, to train as a sound engineer.
this skiving tactic resulted in meeting one or two people who were involved in bands. they got me involved despite myself. i started on keyboards (not very good) then moved onto rhythm guitar (pretty good) and ended up on bass (seemed my best place).
all the time our band was busy getting nowhere, i made tunes to amuse myself. if i liked the idea, i recorded it, using variously a 4 track cassette recorder and a keyboard or two, notably a korg M1 and some dinky bontempi crap.
the band expired. i continued to tinker with music.
i like to spend time on the stereo soundspace in a recording, also making sure anything that's there is meant to be, and can be heard at a level i find comfortable in an overall mix. i like to perfect the sound on medium volume through good headphones (a result of late nights recording and having neighbours). then i listen through speakers, just good quality home hifi speakers, for a final mix. i apply effects as and when they suit, to a lesser or greater degree. that's it.
peace. :~)

Hey Tom . . . We just thrive on AC/DC. Especially the raw 70s sound just before they made the BIG TIME. Check out our myspace for some more if you can spare the time. The recent announcement of AC/DCs world tour has got us in a spin!!
