At most gigs, most guitarists/guitar players/guitar owners will get a member of the audience ask them about their set-up. I thought that someone might be interested to know about my rig. There’s not much to it as I like a nice, simple sound. I’ll start from the plectrum and work all the way through to the amp. 1. Plectrums – I use Tortex .88 (green) plectrums. Used them for years. They last ages, tend not…[more]

Many thanks to Vicky Gosling for taking these shots of us on Saturday night. Nice one.
A massive thank you to everyone who turned out last night. A great time was had by all and we had loads of fantastic feedback from the crowd. Not even the rain could dampen our spirits.

Right. Here goes. I’ve been told I’ve got to write a few paragraphs about my long, successful, musical career. I enjoy a challenge. Okay, this is how I remember things. First band was formed at Havant College sometime around 1991. We never did settle on a name although ‘The Seven Jelly Babies’ springs to mind. There were five of us. There was then another band. It’s a bit hazy. There was yet another band. This…[more]
Hello world, Thought I’d introduce myself to y’all. Started playing rhythm, lead and bass guitar when dinosaurs still wandered around and soon got into the scene in a band called The Jugglers playing own songs and covers in pubs and clubs in North London, including support one night at The Marquee Club. Followed on doing the odd spell late 70’s as a session musician for anyone who asked. Played bass early 80’s for a rock…[more]

I’m Jamie, I play drums for the Crush. (Is that enough of a biog Rich?) I discovered my love of music at an early age. At infants school, like most kids, I was presented with a Recorder – I can still remember the sound made by 12 kids playing “London’s Burning”, slightly out of tune on the recorder. Then I dabbled with the violin for a while in first school. I could hear my parent’s…[more]
