HoLLYWooD RoaDWoRK CD review

This music should be played LoUD!!! preferably on a full range audiophile system... Or, in your car (at traffic stops), and, if using earbuds, be sure to use the best money can buy.
    This is three guys playing live in a recording studio, LoUD. Real music played by highly seasoned players who have been playing together since they was kids.
    Fans of tech noize should dig this disc, the 8 string bass is huge and the guitar sound fx all come from the dude's speaker cab. The drums are inescapable. 'Elvis' does indeed include multiple explosions, as do 'Tan' and 'Prometheus'. 'More Is Not Enough' has that Debussy 5th's thing for all you people out there that miss that turn of the century string quartet thing.
    'Go For A Walk' is prime noize lead guitar, dual string bending without a harmonizer! Crazy.
    Put this one in your player and leave it there.

RCA, GE, Mullard, Telefunken

I was very fortunate a week or so back when a family friend gave me a bag of old RCA, GE and other classic sounding preamp tubes, AU's, AT's and plenty of AX7's, I went through most of the lot and picked out an old Mullard from the 60's - it went in V1; an RCA Blackplate from the 50's - sweet in V2. The only thing I've heard that compares in my old Plexi clone is the old smooth plate Telefunken I had in V1 which, as fate would have it, got broke when it jumped outta my hand as I was going to compare it to these, one last time... Awesome stuff, NO comparison to ANY of those new tubes that are being hyped... etc, etc. Nice glass: Beauty.
Time to update the BLoG!
