After a bracing set by Crooked Still (they really are something), we got down to the business of playing recorded music.
Is that a bitchin amp or what? It doesn't need to go to 11. There is an issue, though, about reaching the knobs. And fitting it in the trunk.
Downloading tip o' the week: go to the Telarc record label site-- they've put up a boatload of MP3s for download, and a lot of them are 320's, which sound very good. The Monte Alexander track in set one came from there.
