"I find guitar amps too trebly, regardless of any explosive-type issues... I've always used a bass amp - much deeper and richer sound. I had a Dynachord 'Imperator' for many, many years... amazingly good & resilient amp!
"I was kinda one of those people Kopper mentions... though it was way before I discovered the Hideout (which incidentally does very cool contemporary comps! Great work Kopper! [even though I haven't actually got any of them... see below!])
"Oh yeah! GREAT show... worth going over to a very wet Melbourne from Adelaide, fer sure!
Totally agree with the sentiments about the Sonics... cool seeing the 5678s coming onstage to dance near the end (they were great too... though I heard they had…"
"Can you please add 3D Radio 93.7fm here in Adelaide, South Australia to your list? We are 100% volunteer - have been broadcasting for over 30 years - have shows dedicated to everything from punk to doowop to country to psychedelia to lounge to metal…"
"Oh yeah... never thought I'd see the Sonics!!!
And so... we bit the bullet! We're going over to Melbourne... the tickets arrived the other day... just too good to miss out on!
What a GREAT lineup!
And even apart from the headliners,…"
"Hey Ken... Great poster for your show! I will definitely check it out.

Favorite Show(s) on GaragePunk Pirate Radio:
AUM... haven't had the capabilities to check out any others yet (our internet access down here is "intermittent"! Our signal gets bounced back from Kangaroo Island and can make downloads difficult)... but I'm certain there are some cool shows out there! Will be investigating....

Thanks for the add! In the Deep South of the UK at the moment, so not much in the way of snow. Heading for Slovenia in a week or so where it will no doubt be a foot thick and look like a Winter Wonderland. Enjoy your 35 degrees and give my regards to Kangaroo Island!
Just PM me a postal address and I'll send you a CD! There's a tiny Surf/Garage/Rockabilly scene in Canberra, but it's growing, when I first moved here there was nothing. If you want to hear those kinds of bands in this town you pretty much have to form them yourself!
It would be great if you and the Molting Vultures could come and visit, I used to play the MVs all the time when I had a radio show here and also on my live365 internet radio show.
