Got to find somewhere suited to a noisyfest, it may be the dogs bollix again...
I reckon that hall in the middle of a massive park next to the motorway in Birkenhead.

The best were at Corban estate, because we had loud, really loud and quiet areas.

Not sure of the price, blacko organised and I'm sure sucked up a lot of the cost.


A single hall is always going to piss some off - the loud guys, the really loud guys and the people who want to play quietly.
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I think the pillars in my area were:
- Black Levi's + Metal tshirt
- Cheap beer and whiskey
- Constantly fixing your POS Ford/Holden with parts you got from a dodgy guy in Glen Eden who lived in a little fibrolite house but had a massive double garage full of car parts stripped from totally legitimately acquired vehicles

Good call.

Perhaps Valiants could have been added to the car group. Also you hadn't mentioned if the guy with the car parts was your uncle's mate or you got his number from the Trade & Exchange! Lastly if he didn't have the parts, you could possibly have procured them from the bogan marae on Rosebank Rd known as Pick-a-part 😃

The bogan guitar players I know are using shit from cash converters.

As an aside I have a Mesa Tremoverb from the same year as yours.
If it's a custom face plate tremoverb I believe it's been through a few hands on this forum. I once did a gig at Kings Arms (R.I.P.) with both our mesas in stereo 😃
Custom faceplate since I built one a few years ago. I bought it from a mate called Justin in 2017.

Clear perspex with the mesa badge in the middle is the one I'm thinking of

Yeah but it's flamed vitex, just happens to look like maple (why I bought it).

I can lend you a Laney quad for as long as you like.

It's got HH speakers with small magnets and is bright as fuck and sounds nothing like a good quad should.

1. Only the upperclass bogans and headhunters had hemis.
2. T&E.
3. Too many hungover hours spent at pickapart on Rosebank rd pulling worn out parts already near to failure. And the douchebag at the turnstile just made up the prices depending on if he got laid the night before or not.

I'm pretty sure you played through my Greenstone of Doom at the first Dogs Bollix gear fest, if I remember correctly you were getting some pretty decent tones out of it too.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

You can always shoot me an offer. Bear in mind the tremolo doesn't work (never has since I owned it), but it does have the adjustable bias mod and better FX loop. I feel I use around 1% of this amps capabilities.

That's why I bought a Mesa with fewer capabilities!
