Rockers hi-fi - hello everybody - The 39 best hi-fi audiophile albums ever | Tech Features.

With a guest list that includes both Kenny Loggins (of Top Gun soundtrack fame) and Wiz Khalifa, you should press play on Drunk with your expectations left at the door. Thundercat - a virtuoso bass player born Stephen Bruner - meows, farts and grooves his way through 23 tracks that give a brief insight into his unique musical mind. That might make it sound like an exercise in zany showboating, but on the whole Drunk isn’t as oddball as its ingredients would suggest. That doesn’t mean it’s ever predictable but there’s far more restraint here than you’d expect from a man who toured with Suicidal Tendencies and has a pet cat called Turbo Tron Over 9000 Baby Jesus Sally Hot Carl.

With Les Dixon ' s return, the band continued as before, playing very much the same venues. In early 1959 the Saints split up. Ray Robbins, disillusioned with the band ' s lack of success, found a ' regular job ' (although he would still be occasionally play with the Zodiac All Stars ) and George Brunker moved back to the east coast. Prior to George Brunker leaving, he coerced Les into making an acetate recording. The session was held with future Clarion label owner Martin Clarke.  The recording took place at Martin Clarke ' s house in Mosman Park. Les did Giddy Up A Ding Dong, At The Hop, Saints Rock and Roll and Endless Sleep . The personnel on the session were Les (vocal/rhythm guitar), George Brunker (drums), occasional Saints saxophonist Jimmy Cook, as well as an unknown lead guitarist and a middle aged lady on piano. As far as Les can remember Martin Clarke organized the piano and lead guitar. In early 1959, Les Dixon joined the band as additional vocalist. As Les recalls, one afternoon he and Saints band mate Johnny Agnew heard a new group were playing at the Bamboo nightclub in Bentley. The band, of course, was T he Zodiacs . Impressed by the rocking sounds, Les and Johnny soon gravitated to Daisy ' s florist. With their arrival the band ' modestly ' renamed themselves Clive Higgins and The Zodiac All - Stars featuring Les Dixon . The All-Stars consisted of Clive, Les (Vocals/rhythm guitar), Brian, Tommy, Johnny Agnew (lead guitar) and Jimmy Cook on saxophone. Toward the end of 1959, The Zodiac All- S tars decided to cut an acetate recording. One of the main reasons, given by both Clive and Les, was to hand out to the girls during shows. Entering the Bale Sound Studio in Cremorne Arcade, Hay Street, Perth, T he Zodiacs recorded four tracks. The Bale S tudio was basically one small room, with a sound booth. There was one microphone to record the band, while another mike was fed into an empty office next door for echo. The tracks recorded were an original number by Les, Stingy Mingy Mama (written for a ' mean ' girlfriend), as well as a flat out version of At the Hop with wild piano courtesy of Brian and two numbers , Hold Me Tight and Danny Boy with Clive on vocals. The personnel on the session were Clive (vocal/rhythm guitar), Les (vocal/rhythm guitar), Johnny Agnew (lead guitar), Brian Prior (piano), Tommy Menzel (drums) and Peter Fairbrother (saxophone). The band sent copies of the acetate to Festival records, but nothing eventuated. The beginning of 1960 saw many changes to T he Zodiac All- S tars. Les Dixon left the group for a more regular source of income. Recently married Les decided to play and sing for show bands like the Norman Wrightson Dance Band , before starting his own show band, T he Aristo-Cats , in1961.

About Retro Record Players Though other music formats have come and gone over the years, records, and therefore record players, have remained consistently popular with many contemporary artists continuing to release albums on vinyl. If you?re currently looking for a record player on which to play your favourite tracks, you?ll find a wide variety available online ranging from old vintage machines to brand new, retro style players. Whether you choose a brand new or used record player will depend on your personal preferences, with both offering good sound quality, usability and aesthetics. Some modern retro-style record players come with built in USB connections, making it easy to connect your record player, and its speakers, to an mp3 player or computer. Depending on the record player that you purchase, it may also be possible to burn music from your record collection onto your computer via specially designed software. Once it?s on your computer, you can easily transfer your music to an mp3 player, letting you carry your record collection with you wherever you go. With vintage record players, it?s important to read the small print carefully to ensure that the machine is still in working order. If it?s not made by a big brand, have a quick look online to make sure that you can get a replacement stylus when the current one wears out. Whether you opt for a brand new retro-style record play or buy a classic vintage model, listening to your music on vinyl is a great way to get even more enjoyment out of your collection and preserve your favourite albums for the future.

Whatever you do, do not use those cheap multi coloured patch cables. You might think that as long as the pedals are connected, that should be enough but it’s not. It’s a shame to buy a great sounding pedal and use cheap cables that suck the living shit out of the circuit. You’ll lose tone, characteristics and almost certainly get a lot of noise. It’s also important to keep the patch cables as short as possible to ensure the shortest and cleanest path for your signal.
