    I've been listening to some old Quicksilver Messenger Service music this weekend, which got me interested in just how they got that brash guitar sound. It's interesting to know that even in the late 60's-early 70's, there were some mad-scientist gear freaks around.

    Check this: "To create his distinctive guitar sound, Cipollina developed this one-of-a-kind amplifier stack. All of his guitars, including the one here, were wired with two pickups, one for bass and one for treble. The bass pickup fed into the two Standel bass amps on the bottom of the stack. Each Standel was equipped with two 15-inch speakers. The treble pickups fed the two Fender amps-a Fender Twin Reverb with two 12-inch speakers and a Fender Dual Showman- that drove the six Wurlitzer horns."

    I wish I'd had the chance to hear these guys live. I can haz toonz?

    I don't care if it's the weekend. I'm going to get a few hours sleep and then go do my old job for a few hours tomorrow to work out some frustrations (and get away from this computer!)

    I think we all remember the first time we heard the Rutles...
