    New eardrums required.

    Music dept throwing out an old Peavey Combo as it was wrecked. Aha! A few minutes with a soldering iron and some cable and it fits nicely under my desk!!

    Connected to my workstation which has the usual external drive for storing "Ahem, ........... 8GB of `work` files."

    Feet up while I do some routine stuff.

    Fired up Wolfmother.



    AAAArghhhh!!! Coffee everywhere!!!! Can`t reach volume knobs without moving chair out of the way!!! :?

    Think I should have checked volume first!!!!! ops:

    Still, means I don`t need new knobs which go up all the way to 11.

    "This tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry."
