he never uses the same rig twice in terms of pedals. i want to see if theres anything new that would hint that they are actually producing new material. this is why i ask.

you know that picture juststeve took of jack whites racountuers(sic) board that was all coppered out from coachella last year? you know how many dozens of times i have seen that picture posted around the internet since i posted it once in another forum after he posted it here. gear nerds love this shit.

Yeah, there are no good rack pictures. I'm barely gaining any knowledge on gear myself so I don't really know much of what's going on in the rack. I am interested in his amp settings. I hope someone has a good enough camera to get the detail on that.

funny that you mention it. his rack is the epitome of the beginners rack rig. i think its a yamaha spx90, yamaha gep50, alesis midiverb2, and i think he carried around spares. all three of those can be had IN ALL for 300.00 bucks, and he's been using the same stuff in his rack since isn't anything. im pretty sure the gep50 isnt for him but for belinda. the midiverb 2 is fucking great and is pretty much isnt anything in a box and is the main source for his reverse reverb(soft as snow...) for example, the spx90 is all loveless(to hear knows when), and the reverse verb is great but the bypass is awful. all stuff made in the 80's thats obsolete by todays standards but he makes them sound like some 4 grand eventide unit.

i may have my own stuff going rather soon but i'd be more than happy.

i am pretty sure sung isnt shooting it for losanjealous as i talked to him and he said he wasnt going. and the scenstar stopped sending out people as well. i am sure someone from the times will be there so hopefully the shitty place i write for gets approved.

Cool show it seemed like a short set. I was hoping it would be louder. It seemed like the venue or something held them back from being at a 13. Opening band the "bright black morning light" before the asshole on the acoustic guitar were awesome. Nice to finally meet bug and teamcoachellahellzyes.




By the way Marc(k?)o if you read this. Yes to Leonard Cohen, Ill pm you closer to the show.

Yeah the Fillmore is beautiful with the hardwood and chandlers and stage set-up. Its my third favorite after Red Rocks and club beta (only because at beta your eyes will blur from the rattle of bass and sound)

Ya you had it right. Marco. Did you get tickets for Cohen already? I am trying to figure out how to manage this. Friggin pricey tickets.

It was nice meeting you too youngbloodz....I also thought 13 songs was a bit short...YMMR was beyond amazing...I think the setlist was exactly the same as Coachella only with Come In Alone added...funny It seemed like everyone was talking about their Coachella set when I walked it...and the bass was insane...

my only disappointment? not meeting Bugz...

Seeing that song at the El Rey was and is, thus far, the highlight of my 2009.

I remember watching you film that and thinking "ah man, I'm going to be so thankful for this footage in a couple weeks..."

emtgreg
04-30-2009, 10:41 PM
that show was the best show I have seen in years, no doubt about that...

hopefully i will get the two ymmr videos up tomorrow, that is another 2 gigs worth of data...

but that is what I have for quality mbv stuff...

the sonic foam that I wrapped the inside of the camera with, did not survive the heat, so it degraded, and by sunday alot of my vids have alot of distortion...

also my sd card had an error, and most of my mbv footage from coach is fail :(

so this and ymmr is what I got!

I'm glad they didn't do any new material this April, seeing as it was my first time seeing them and all, but now... geeeez I would kill for some new stuff. That sounds so great right now. I'll try not to anticipate this too much.

A 5th member though? That's kinda interesting news...

I am quite proud of the fact that the sound remained intact for most of it, if you watch closely, in HQ, you will notice where the sonic vibrations are distorting the camera image, yes, I am that close...

so awesome :)

you know you can use image rescue to get stuff off a card that has errored. it happened to me a few nights ago after a gig and it recovered stuff off the card i had deleted weeks ago so if you havent formatted anything with that sd card you should be able to recover the lost data.

yeah, I got everything off the card except the one video i recorded during ymmr,

i was less than 10 feet from the main stage speakers, so I figured it failed during the holocaust, from too much electromagnetic radiation :)
