    Default The Well CVII: Welcome To The Kama Sutra

    Cheers to Redmist for keeping the Well in the country and passing the honour on to me.

    So anyway...

    That's a tough one, man. See, I dig the sound of a banjo but it gets real old, real quick. So it's going to have to be one seriously skillful ****ing sheep. And in my experience sheep are only good for two things; eatin' and ****in'. So even though I'm not a fan of water I'll have to take the unicorn. As long as I don't have to play leap-frog with it, that is.

    That's tough too, actually. I have a tonne of influences but none of them have really influenced me all that dramatically. I'll take little bits and pieces from whatever I'm interested in. When I just started playing there were three guys I wanted to play like. They were Tom Morello, Kurt Cobain and David Gilmour.

    Lately though, there's been a lot of different influences on me, a lot of them either friends or other local artists. Omar Rodriguez Lopez is a big influence on me, though mostly his earlier work with At The Drive-In. I'm influenced a lot by bands like Isis, Pelican, Red Sparowes, And So I Watch You From Afar, Mogwai, UpCDownC and other post rock, instrumental stuff. I take a lot of influence from a lot of more electronic music as well; like Portishead, Massive Attack and other bands like that. I'll 'borrow' stuff from classical music, blues, classic rock, traditional Irish music...just anything that sounds relatively good to me, really.

    tl;dr: I'm a hack and I'll steal ****ing anything from anyone.

    Probably two of my biggest influences right now:





    Both these bands have now broken up, unfortunately. Most of my favourite bands have.

    If you're offering me Thin Lizzy or beer then I'll take the beer. If you actually meant The Corrs, then I'll take them all simultaneously. Except for the dude. He can film or something.

    Truth is, I've never been a huge Thin Lizzy fan. I don't care if that makes me unpatriotic, their style never really did anything for me. I liked a lot of Gary Moore's stuff but Lizzy were fairly hit or miss for me.

    I own a daisy rifle and I had a pretty awesome super soaker when I was a kid. Other than that, none whatsoever. Probably never own one, either. It's cool, though. I know if I'm ever in a situation where I need one you'll have my back, right?

    Yup, I joined up in 2005 to ask some dumbass question about neck radii (that's the plural, right?). My first thread got one reply...from Zerberus, I think. Anyway, I made about 14 posts and then disappeared for a couple of years until I got bored enough to come back.

    I lurked for a bit to find out what kind of pickup would be good in my Pacifica but once I had it sorted I suddenly remembered that I had a login for this place and decided to make a wee post thanking everyone for turning me on to the Custom8, got hooked and the rest is history.

    It's kinda like smoking, ya know? Once you start, you never really stop...

    Dude, if I could remember it then it wouldn't be the best party I've been to, would it?

    There's a few that stand out, I guess...it's just that details are a bit fuzzy on most of them. Here's a few highlights:

    My senior school formal was pretty awesome. I wore a kilt and ended up drinking on a beach in Jordanstown until about noon the next day.

    There was a really epic three day party in my friend's grandma's house. I was in a band at the time and we were supposed to be playing the first night and it all just got a bit out of hand, really. Somebody dyed my hair red while I was passed out the first night. We were standing in the kitchen the next morning, still completely hammered. Anyway, I was leaning against the wall and I kept sliding down it like I was about to pass out and then righting myself. When I went back in later there was a red zig-zag line around about half the kitchen wall where my head had been rubbing against it. That was the last time I drank vodka, not so coincidentally.

    I was at a party organised by the same girl about a year later that ended with my friend crashing her dad's car into the wall of the house. Not much damage was done but we weren't invited back...

    A friend and I carried a naked chick through the street for a while trying to find her house (to bring her home safely, you judging bastards) before going on a ****ing stupid and dangerous joyride with a severely drunken driver. I regret that one.

    The best one, though, was about five or six years ago. There's a primary school that I won't name that we used to climb into to skateboard. We'd been doing it for monthes and the crew just sort of gradually got bigger. One weekend we brought up stereos and barbeques and...I don't know what happened. More and more people just started showing up until there were maybe fifty people. Maybe more, I can't remember. The whole playground was pretty much filled. There was different music coming from every corner, there was food cooking, there was pleasant smelling smoke coming from certain circles and everyone was having a good time. It was a great day during the summer and no one was really drinking, just chilling and laughing and having fun. That's probably the friendliest atmosphere I've ever been in, to be honest.

    Jesus Christ, I can ramble...

    Well thanks, man. If I'm ever trying to tell a German how to 'shelf' something then that information could come in pretty handy.

    in my experience, ze chermans either won't need to be told, or shouldn't be spoken to about it at all.

    These are always good for making you delve deep into your soul......



    what is your highest level of education

    where were you born?

    what is your occupation

    what is the single most important accomplishment you'd like to achieve before you draw your final breath

    what accomplishment have you achieved that is your proudest

    what accomplishment have you achieved that is your most profound regret

    what do we not know about you that you'd like us to?

    what do we think we know about you that is false

    what are some of the philosophical truths that guide you in your day-to-day?

    what did your parents/family of origin do well that you hope to emulate?

    what did your parents/family of origin do not well that you hope to improve upon ?

    favorite childhood memory?

    tell us one thing that was true about you 5 years ago that is no longer true and you are happy that it is not true

    tell us one thing that was true about you 5 years ago that is no longer true and you are sad that it is not true

    tell us one thing that is not true today but you hope will be true about you in 5 years that you welcome

    tell us one thing that is not true today but that is likely to be true about you in 5 years but that you hope to avoid

    tell us of your most influential romantic relationship - how did it start - how did it end (if it has ended) - how did it influence who you are today

    what one thing (that is not about your physical appearance) would you change about yourself today if you had a magic wand that would serve this purpose

    Fave musical style is hard to answer because I like and respect so many completely different styles. I'll basically listen to anything that makes me feel something. And I don't just mean sombre, melancholic music made by old men with a solid grasp on minor pentatonics. I really hate that most people think that 'emotional' music is solely the territory of slowly played blues licks and fingerpicked minor chords on an acoustic. People seem to forget that anger, hatred, bitterness, joy, elation, etc, etc all fall within the emotional spectrum and I can get into any music that does a good job of portraying ANY kind of emotion...as long as it's genuine.

    The style I listen to the most would be hard rock, as long as it's more influenced by punk than metal. It's hard to imagine anything that turns me off more than '80ies style metal and hard rock. I just loathe it. I really like spacey, post-rock, instrumental kind of stuff too and I really, really like bands that manage to fuse that style with good solid rock. Heavy and atmospheric in perfect balance is something I've always tried to create. Usually with very little success.

    I've always been turned off by anything that's too intricate and polished. Harmonised guitars are hell for me.

    The perfect way for me to describe my preference is to use the example of the band Thrice. The Alchemy Index: Fire is one of my favourite records. However, there are very few albums I own that I dislike as much as The Artist In The Ambulance. If you've heard them then you know how different the style of each album is. Just extrapolate that over the entire rock genre and you'll get me. I think.

    I really should stop typing so much. On to gear:

    If you mean gear that I own then it's probably a toss up between my two Laneys, an old AOR (from the year I was born) and a much more recent LV300 (a hybrid). The LV gets way more use because I really like the overdrive channel and the AOR needs pedals (which I don't really own) and volume to sound good. If I had to just take one then I'd probably take the AOR, though. It was my first tube amp and I trust it more than any other gear I own. My guitar would be my SG copy. Mahogany(esque) body, a C8 and a '59n. Unparalleled playability and a great, solid and very versatile sound.

    If you meant dream gear...then probably an Orange. Probably a Rockerverb. I really, really dig the sound from those things. Guitar would be a real nice SG and a great Tele. There's very little I want to do that I couldn't do with a set up like that.

    Mmmm....















    Incidentally, that last Tele Custom is very similar to something I plan to be building very soon.

    Nah, just the regular ones. I'm not really into the idea of learning olympic grade gymnastics and warming up for thirty minutes just to disappoint a girl and have my minute of fun.

    EDIT: I did actually receive a copy as a gift from a friend once but apparently she didn't want to help me try them out. ****in' tease.
