I've been busy lately producing a band that I absolutely LOVE called Stillpoint from Northern Ireland. Influenced by Biffy Clyro, Radiohead and Foo Fighters this trio are preparing for their 2nd UK tour and are securing decent support slots.
Check out the video page for their studio diary :-)
yup had a whopper time!
Been REAL busy lately revalving amps!
latest to be done and biased a bit hotter is the FENDER BASSMAN.
Ever since I got it I knew it could sound better and guess what, biased hot with some new JJ's it kicks butt!
did the mesa recto pre too and I should be getting my marshall JMP superbass 100W back soon too, also revalved!!
Just in case the Ampeg SVT-2 Pro, Marshall Superbass 100W, Fender Bassman and Dynacord FET weren't enough, I just aquired a very rare, all valve TRACE ELLIOT HEXAVALVE HEAD.
It's similar to the Ampeg but cleaner, brighter and "zingy-er"...
Dead Label asked me to do the live sound for them at the Ulster Hall in Belfast and the Olympia Theatre in Dublin while they were supporting Machine Head. Wow. What a rig that was, especially in the Ulster Hall! Dead label got an amazing welcome in the Olympia, and they responded by putting on a show that was worthy of ANY stage. :-)
I got to do sound with my brother Alwyn for Dead Label in the Ulster Hall, supporting Machinehead. I knew the desk (Digidesign SC48 or Icon), having used one on my tour in India, and he knew the band having produced an amazing album for them. It's the loudest gig I've done, but not the biggest.
