  3. Thanks for the cover! Probably from the distributor's page, couldn't remember the URL.
  4. TRICKFINGER II Tracklist: A1 Shift Sync A2 Ruche A3 Exclam B1 Hasan B2 Cuh B3 Stall Acid Test will release Trickfinger II on September 8th, 2017.
  5. GEOGLYPHS, GROUND FIGURES, OR INTAGLIOS I just found this photo of a signpost relating to geoglyphs in the southern desert of California! I am not certain that this type of ancient artwork was an inspiration although this many years after the album release it feels like an exciting and open ended addition to the discussion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blythe_Intaglios The Colorado Desert contains the only known desert intaglios in North America. The intaglios are mostly located along the Colorado River. The Blythe Intaglios contain three human figures, two four-legged animal, and a spiral; although Harner (1953) reported two spirals. The largest human figure in the Blythe Intaglio group is 171 feet (52 m) long. Since it is difficult to view an entire figure from the ground, the intaglios are best viewed from the air. Sometimes there are stories that ancient people could have developed gliders that would ride air currents, and/or could have found trance methods to leave their bodies and view from above these artworks. Music could very likely have been such a method! It may not have been during the daytime, it could have been at times when persons were falling asleep but with moonlight, twilight or the earliest light from sunrise. I wish to say that it is fun and inspiring to think of the PBX back cover artwork as resembling an ancient intaglio artwork. This seems to be the largest human intaglio present there, it is currently within an enclosure! https://camperchroniclesdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/dji_0010.jpg Also, there is an album by Yes, Tales From Topographic Oceans, which includes a geoglyph in the album artwork! "The Ancient: Giants Under The Sun" The Ancient probes still further into the past beyound the point of remembering. Here Steve's guitar is pivotal in sharpening reflection on the beauties and treasures of lost civilisations, Indian, Chinese, Central American, Atlantean. These and other people left an immense treasure of knowledge. I do think that overall the music and sound of PBX carries so much presence and connection; feeling immensely human and primordial and allowing listeners to become that way through playing the album!! All of John's music is able to be those ways for many people I feel and uniquely for each person, but for me PBX especially brings that openness of arranged creative music and sound to life in very unique, immense and lasting ways, similar to these ancient artworks lasting through eons and conveying unending amounts of ideas, by how they interact with people experiencing them!
  6. I just watched this - Is that situation a scene in the bible? Odd. Yet John ain't Jesus Christ contrary to what too many people say...

  8. This is a fairly simple song, yet I can't really figure it out. It starts with 8 measures kick, followed by the base line ( what a pun) As far as I know, the bass line goes like Bb-Bb-Db- | -Bb-Bb-Bb-Bb-Db Afterwards, the melodic chord changes go _roughly_ like F-F-Bb-Bb- | F-F-Bb-Bb- Ab-Ab-C-Db- | Ab-C-Db Is anyone willing to figure this song out? Shame on me, my failure in figuring this song out made it lose all its appeal...
  9. How do you like it guys? I've enjoyed it so much last summer. It's perfect music to work visually for my taste He's looking with a serious mine to me. Okay, enough off-topic
  10. http://www.jfeffects.com.br/2016/12/jf-effects-interviews-dave-lee-guitar.html?m=1 found this, Tech said they were new American strat pups
  11. We're in a new place, y'all. :D

  12. Mine was finally shipped today! SO.HAPPY. This truly is THE album for a person on the crossroads in their early thirties.
  13. Water, you're looking for this: http://invisible-movement.net/2008/12/mike-piscitelli-talks-about-the-past-recedes-new-photo And this (NSFW!) This is not good to speculate, but I always wondered if he was a fellow grey-A.
  14. And the two recents, the square one also being from Linda's instagram, for John's birthday.
  15. Welcome to the forum, Lars. Have a look at this collection of screencaps: http://invisible-movement.net/v/index.php?/category/964

  17. http://josh-klinghoffer.org/gitarre-bass-magazine-interview-with-josh-klinghoffer/ Really honest and sad at the same time imo
  18. Solved: Works fine if I put the WAH after the delay
  19. If i put the WH10(V2) before the delay, the sound is a distorted s**t. I guess it is because of the volume boost.
  20. Yea man! For sure! I have never uploaded a video on youtube but really want to so this mite be the time! I will also upload on Instagram not sure if you have one??
  21. Wow that's crazy! I guess today's polyurethane coatings really do blow nitrocellulose out of the water when it comes to durability, none of my guitars have worn like that but my acoustic and I've had some of them for years. I guess the years were rough on his guitars with all the travel and play. Pretty cool to see the difference.
  22. Awesome! I'd love to hear what you think, and if you're able to record it and upload it on youtube or soundcloud or whatever that'd be cool too!
  23. Yea your right. Maybe down the distant road all get myself a vintage one for home or just cu it's Kul to have one haha . I ended up buying a ten spot! All let you know when it comes in how I like it!
  24. This site (below) is not the easiest to navigate but it seems someone from there has spent a lot of time emailing John's old guitar tech, Dave Lee (one of the nicest guys in the biz. He let me hold one of Fru's guitars once for a photo). The site has many interesting stories about his guitars- like the battered white Strat from SA era that looked like the paint had melted off the front (John did a guitar mag cover shoot with it once), John gave to it Jack Irons son, who converted it to a lefty and still plays it! Very cool. Anyway the first page I linked to shows the 62 Strat discussed in this thread very shortly after John got it (not the best photo but you can see how new it looks and how small the wear above the pickguard is). http://www.jfeffects.com.br/search/label/DaveMail Here is another clearer one from even earlier:
  25. Some of us oldies remember John coming back with the 62 strat. It was almost pristine in 98, very little wear. We have watched it age as the gigs go past. It doesn't surprise me about the pickups. John doesn't know the year of some of his guitars. He's a strange one in that he's a tech head in some ways but not in others. His knowledge of old synths far out ways his knowledge of vintage guitars and specs and also setups/maintenance (latter probably because someone else has done it for him since the late 80s).
