Where dogs wear hats and birds fly backwards
Back in the late 90s when Stoat was looking for a drummer we called around to this lads house who seemed to be interested. Yer man answered the door and went off to get his drumsticks, and meanwhile an animal that was, as far as I could tell, a fully grown wolf trotted out of the house someplace and stuck its nose right into my balls. I stood very still. Eventually yer man returned, called off the wolf, and off we went to the practice studio or whatever

How was his drumming?

After about 10 years I finally changed the strings on my electro-acoustic guitar. Fuck me. It sounds amazing.

I had planned to just change one string that was about to break but decided, what the hell, you're on your holidays*. (*also a minor pleasure)

It's amazing the difference a string change can make. I changed the strings on my violin last week, hadn't changed them in about a year, and fuckin hell it's a different instrument all of a sudden.

This is it. I never bothered as I only play the guitar at home on my own but this is so loud and bright now. I'd got used to the gradual decline in quality and didn't give it a second thought.

I have an urge to go busking.

I also realise that after about 35 years of playing guitar I still can't restring properly, but that's for the #minorcomplaints forum

Yeah I only changed mine because I was actually recording for somebody for once, but then after I changed them I realised that I've been so consistent with playing this year that they were probably even more worn out than they usually would be after I spend a year not changing them.

I used to change my snare skin before a recording session or a big gig, always a brilliant feeling, and sound. I use homemade drums now, and changing skins is a major pain in the bawbag, haven't done it since i built the bastards. They're super easy to tune though, so that helps a bit. I HATE breaking sticks, I get way too used to my sticks.
