At long last…”the Jahcaster”

Posted in music on October 7, 2010 by kingbiscuitpants

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.
