Seems this record is pretty short in total, a mere 33:59!!


0.39   Mental Vomit
6:25   Housing, Luxury, Energy
2:55   I'm Glad I Could Help Out
6:34   Delayed Clarity
1:32   Junkie Jesus
5:05   Science In Modern America
4:52   Bird Animal
4:39   Mock She
1:17   Acoustic Junkie

If the record is that short I wonder what other songs they'll be playing on tour?

I think it read that they'll be doing stuff off "This machine kills artists" too.

Kevin really had the green manalishi. Can't believe you got to own that.
How apt.

That is probably the reason the covered that song...Kevin whipped out that guitar and said "hey check it out...it's the green Manalishi..."  lol.

Hey Dumpster D, sorry I didn't reply to your last post! I know I saw it, I must have gotten distracted between reading it and replying to you.

I haven't tested the resistance of the pickups. I do have a voltmeter, just not sure what setting to put it on to test pickups. I know the G&L MFDs are supposed to be pretty hot/powerful compared to other J pickups.

So... based on what I'm going to post below, yes the action is quite high, most likely out of not being set up for a long time. I think I might take it to my local guy who's great at setting up basses and have him give it a once over. Normally I don't mind trying to adjust things on my instruments, but this one I'm not really wanting to mess around with. Plus, the truss rod is adjusted at the base of the neck, I really don't want to take the neck off myself.

And here it is. The green "Shove It" bass. I had asked Kevin a few times over the course of the years about this one. He put an EGC guitar up for sale and I started another conversation with him. Long story short, he sold it to me. With a slide! And a road case! The road case is really cool too, it's beat to hell, got all kinds of airline stickers and some baggage claim stuff on it with his name, and a handwritten Fantomas itemized gear label. This bass is in similar condition to the orange one. Three of four knobs broken off. Dings, dents and scratches throughout. But it still plays and sounds incredible. The D string tuner has been replaced, original broken off at some point. Both basses are signed on the back side of the headstock by Eric Chaz, this one has a date which is cool. There are a few slight differences between the way each was built. The green one has a forearm relief cut into the body. The headstocks are slightly different shaped, the green one's headstock is painted, obviously the inlays are different. I think the orange one's fretboard is rosewood and the green one is ebony? I need to check with my luthier friend to confirm that. Also, the green one's action is considerably lower, making me think that the orange one just needs a set up. The frets on the green one are lower as well, and don't have grooves worn into them. My guess is that it's had a fret crown/polish. I like big frets on bass guitars, but these lower ones feel awesome and now I wish the rest of my basses had frets like these. When I got it, it didn't have either strap button, and the one at the bridge had it's screw broken clean off off with the threaded part stuck in the wood with no head, twice! Fortunately I was able to extract one of those broken screws and replace both buttons.

Not even gonna ask what you paid...Now I'm wondering why all the knobs are busted.  :-k :-k :-k

Honestly I can't name too many tracks they've done live off Honky, I think Lovely butterflies is the only thing that comes to mind besides mombius Hibachi.

I went to build a ribbon crasher the other night with some broken cymbal bits, but I guess I threw them away...I ended up using a couple busted splash cymbals stacked with a pair of hi-hats with no felt and Put a tambourine on it...it sounded pretty close to a ribbon crasher and took almost no effort or time to make, and I covered "Revolve" and it pretty much saved the day..that whole recording is all about that sound.

Anyone here had a crack at the bass licks in Revolve? I'm close on a few of them, but I'd like to double check a few licks from the verses.

What I've done is slowed down the YT versions a little to pick a few slight hammer ons and pull offs, and sort of watch Mark playing slowed down to try to see where I'm missing the lick.

There's a butt-knocker doing a cover with a five string who does his own thing off key and it's totally not how it should be played.

I'm on the right track but I am looking to double check with someone else, Like I said..I'm pretty close but I'm sorta stuck trying to figure out if I've got it or not because the bass licks are a bit percussive.
