Wow,  just wow. 

Mostly I want to thank all the sloths that made this possible…

Not the scary Goonies kind but the cute furry ones from the Amazon that I’m sure wont rape the hell out of Chunk the moment the cameras stop rolling.

At long last…”the Jahcaster”

This instrument that Gregg and I made…  Gregg did most of the work, but I did help out in some ways and our buddy Nick donated a squier neck & body for the project, thanks Nick.

The concept started back when Gregg & I were part of jahfe , a Hatian, reggae-compa band (which has managed to plug along without us) I was bored one night and half-assedly photoshopped one of the original Eddie Van Halen “Frankenstein” guitars and put in Rasta colours and emailed the image to Gregg with the caption “Jahcaster”.

We both had a chuckle and more or less forgot about it until I had a little cash burning a hhole in my pocket & I took advantage of a sale at Stewart Macdonald on EMG Select pickups (the same sale that enabled Mr. Blackwell to happen) so I Purchased 2 humbuckers and a H S H style pearl pickguard; knowing we had Nick’s eviscerated Squier Strat at Gregg’s house.

Now I’m not sure which one of us suggested it but operation jahcaster was born.  The guitar has a great sound and is one of a kind, with it’s 2 EMG Select humbuckers and the overwound original single coil from gregg’s upgraded Lead II.  The pickup arrangement is a 5 way switch with a toggle to allow all three pickups on at once and has a great PAF, neck pickup sound and a great transparent and versitlile quality from the pickups, Gregg loves it!

Long forgotten song of the day… “Phantom of the Paradise – Phantom’s Theme” by Paul Williams

Posted in music on October 5, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

This is my favorite of the many fantastic songs written for an absolute shitburger of a movie (Brian de Palmas’ Phantom of Paridise) by the oft forgotten Paul Williams.

The lyrics are just absolutely fantastic & a wonderfully restrained arraingement for a very sad and meditive song.

Other than a guest appearance on the Dexter’s Lab cartoon I haven’t heard anything from him, which is quite sad since he has some great chops.

Give it a listen it’s good.
