    Don`t be silly, of coarse there are 31 days in February. And before you get smart, tomorrow's date is the 3rd of March, i decided to declare this past week as a leap-year "week of confusion". And so it shall be from this day forth. Can`t wait for the next one.


    Special greets to the future leaders of the planet, now plotting for same in carlow - nice night tuesday, actually. Now, this week's Radio Show starts Early, 9pm. Just in case you were wondering.


    Allegedly we visit CARLOW 2nite to aid those in Furthar Education reach the conclusion that if they don`t study hard and take over the planet, they may end up like me..


    Added a new gallery for LOVE DAY at Enniscorthy.. See Darran Rice, Robbie Nelson and Myself in Threesome Shocker..!!

    Nlab.. (the new "blah" BTW).. First the BAD news - the photos from saturday night last are useless.. All white-haze thanks to the Amount of smoke deployed by the visual effects team.. For once i wish the bouncers had had their way - you know the way they always bang on about "killing that bleedin' smoke..", the auld flash on the cam just PERFECTLY lit up the smoke-cloud, er, and that's all.. really.. ho hum.. we live & learn! Well, the good news now, it was FUN. Yep. Lotta folks turned out for the occation, and it certainly poured wet-slop on the DID rumour.. So, if DID, then WTF were all those splooms doing on saturday night? Paying their respects? Attending a wake? ENUF. That is the subject closed (at least untill _I_ can`t get a gig) - DI_N_D. Official. Anyone that thinks DID is just not looking correctly - or has killed their brain. More evidance: we had 29129 hits last month.. that's the most since the 30+ days of March 2003.. Mmm.. DIDND my friends, it's just "resting between projects"..

    Oh, so, the tech report? Been a while since we had need of one to be honest.. but just so you know.. We are Crit on HILLSTREET in Mohill, for twas' where we woz, and it`s like this: Vestax 2000 decks - loads of tricks, reverse and super-pitch (makes the wind-down so easy!!), +/- 10%, and (i'm sure) VERY expensive, with the Stock Headshells (doh! - far too light!!) and Stanton 500s.. Mixer is one of those nearly-there Allen & Heath's, the one's with the Highpass (tinny) filter knobs that "squish" out the bass when you wank them, nice the first time you do it, but VERY annoying thereafter.. Now, i am on record as saying the A&H mixers are posh shite - big and sexy, but not really any use next to a Pioneer or InFader - although with it`s Blue LED and extra Knobbage (preamp inputs for 5 decks!) i`m sure the A&H would look SAVAGE in a bedroom setup.. er.. with 5 decks.. The lighting Computer is MIDI-Keyboard controlled, black keys for banks, white for presets, and a mouse and LCD monitor are there for your comfort and safety also.. So look 4wd 2 Pro gear, but beware of the A&H scourge - the headphone AMP is feeble, breaking up allover the shop, and the Gainpots are NOT fully nulling!!! The monitor has a seperate feed, and is loud enough to have your OWN party! But (and here comes the but) the "air-pocket" hummmmmm is in da mutha-fuc*in house.. Now, here's the funky bit, the decks are very plasticky, and the volume of air underneath the desk caused the decks to self-oscillate, giving that drowning-out HUMMMMMMMM , DJs can avoid this by pulling the bass out - but if you are a freq-mizer, like me, this gives you only 45-degrees of turn on the bass pot (at most) to work with before the HUMMMM come.. NOT GOOD ENUF - and get this - when the "spare" mixer was removed at the end of the night, the RIGHT deck went into a bass-feedback loop for the first time that night.. the actual weight of the spare mixer, just sitting next to the right deck was enuf to kill some of the feedback,.. the left deck was as hummy as a week-old rasher on a radiator.. had to watch the bass.. Oh, and another thing about the A&H mixer - the headphone CUE is PRE EQ - so you don`t notice the changes you make on the bass/mid/top in the headphones! Yep.. partially blind mixing.. pisser huh? So what can they do to fix this? Well, besides dumping the mixer and decks for technics and pioneer, slab the table the decks are on - really, a paving slab underneath each deck, and support from below for the extra weight.. that may help with the Hummmmm, and DJs beware of the Vestax decks, they are much more resistant then technics - you really have to twist hard on the pin to make a difference, be ready for that.. And be Gentle with it

    As to this attempt to scaremonger re: gig on "love day" upcoming in Wexford, after carefull asking of people who might rememember that sort of thing, i have been informed there were some VERY bad nights on record in ENNISCORTHY, and that this upcoming thing is nowt to do with the crowd that did the bogey gigs.. In fact, it`s in the lap of ROB of Camolin days this time, and since we know exactly where he sleeps, and he has a track record of putting in the effort in when it's needed, we SHALL ball in Wexford for Lurrrve Day (valentines actually), and if it`s shite, blame rob.okay?
