Apologies to anyone still reading this blog fer the infrequent updates. Have been rather preoccupied with a new hobby.
As am sure many of ye are familiar with that Malay proverb, "Biar Mati Eksyen, Jangan mati accident". Taking that sound advice to heart, me has been trawling the classifieds in search of a battle axe to feed me inner metal child.
This is one that has caught me eye. Made in Land of the Rising Sun and of a vintage when hair was big & spandex tight. American made BC Rich instruments costs a fooking bomb and even this three decade old instrument commands at least a couple of Gs.
Pricey but it still is tempting.
Apologies fer the bass porn. Just me state of mind right now . . .
ps: Any feedback from the musically inclined is very much appreciated.

If ye digs early/classic Metallica, ye should check out Evile. These lads from Huddersfield have honed that early-80s thrash sound into an artform without sounding ham-fisted or cliched.
please do check out the interview this humble scribe did with the guitarist here: http://www.spadesmagazine.com/2011/09/15/evile-interview-with-ol-drake/
Thrash fooking Rules!
