Still sounds “tinny” ( as though you were talking from inside a tin can ) .

Yes John … all part of Sam getting back to basics on a budget – the recording was actually transmitted to his 8 track via an empty dog food tin left over from Nattie being fed and a piece of string.

Hence the “tinny” sound.

It’s like Samuel talking to you through a metre or two of PVC pipe. I love it. An echo chamber of analysis…

Yes there is no getting around a half day strike. I have found another effective striking method is a swift kick to the groin. Similar to what the government uses against workers.

Oh and thanks for the link Wonko.

No problems Chuck, I hope you enjoyed the tune. Peeping Tom’s website can be found here: [6]

The comments in Episode I were trimmed rather severely, weren’t they?

I read your review and went to the website. I am hearing what you put down Wonko, they are great. I listened to mp3s. I been missing out. The ‘Shouldabeenrope’ riffs are heavy and bluesy. Love it . Yes they have that Kyuss feel and headsmashing groove. I will endeavor to see them. I might go on Sunday to the Corner to see them and ‘Clutch’.

Yes the Episode 1 thread was cut off at the knees. I think Samuel should have been made the editor of a certain right wing Dutch newspaper. He would have saved their embassy in Lebanon from being burnt to the ground.

Hey Chuck, great! I’m glad you like them. They are one of my favourite bands. Great guys too. I recommend you check them out; the Clutch show should be huge. I’ve never seen Clutch but I’ve heard they are very good.

Make sure you say hello to Fatty, the bald ‘n’ bearded singer, for me, if you end up going.
