I was lucky enough to pick this mint condition early 2000′s Tokai LS75 from a very friendly AGGH forum member. Basically a killer Les Paul Goldtop clone for $700 spondoolies. The pickups are P90′s by Australian pickup wizard, Mick Brierly. Took it out for rehearsals over the weekend and it was perfectly grouchy sounding. Makes a great sidekick to the Tokai ES130 I raved about earlier.
Daniel Lanois with Trixie Whitley, Brian Blade and Daryl Johnson in the studio rehearsing Ring the Alarm from their upcoming release as Black Dub. Not the normal tastychops fare here but hey its Lanois and Brian Blade – this is music. Great jams towards the end.
The Oz Noy Trio with special guest Eric Johnson playing Schizophrenic live at Saxon Pub Austin, Texas. Great groove and flying by the seat of the pants type stuff. Oz Noy is one cat that is pushing things out there.
