    I feel like the only person sitting here thinking the emperor has no clothes. Utterly bland for me - just not on the same plane of existence as most of both of their previous output. 

    I'm fully onboard with a 90's indie band revival after a decade+ of 80s stuff, but the key to that is great songs and this ain't it babe. 

    And @RocknRollDave even Seahorses had that one song with a great riff (the name of which, admittedly, completely escapes me) 
    Love Is The Law. Great riff, awful song.

    I love the way the riff modulates to a different key and it works by being in exactly the same position, same frets etc, just a string down, on the bass side, and a string up on the treble side….if I have explained that at all.

    Well that's depressing
    Why? The quicker people realise how great digital sounds, the quicker guitarist can stop wondering what that smell is onstage when valve amps craps out

    That's the badger. And having googled it I can confirm the riff is still great, and the rest of the song still exists.

    Pretty sure there was an AC30 and a Marshall of some sort for the recording but that they were modelled on a Kemper for the live stuff. 
    You used a Fender Twin with JBL speakers for the first Roses album. Did you have a traditional amp for the Gallagher/Squire sessions? “Yeah. For the demos, we used plug-ins. For the sessions at Greg Kurstin’s studio in LA, we used physical amps. Greg had everything I had, so there was no need to ship anything out. I used his AC30 and modified Marshall JMP 50-watt Master Volume. In fact, we cloned them before we left. There were
    a few pedals knocking about – I forget what they were now [Squire anticipates his live rig will include the Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man, Xotic RC Booster, Neo Instruments Ventilator II and a Vintage Pedal Workshop FET preamp made by Steve Giles].”

    Interesting fact - I used to rehearse in a room at Sankey Soap in Manchester in the 90's and the Fender Twin I used had 'Roses' stencilled on the side.

    It has inspired me to look out my second coming lp.
    Squiere's playing on that is phenomenal.

    Did anyone see John Squire & Liam on Rossy last night…..JS was effortlessly brilliant & looked so relaxed on stage….So before you all say “it’s in his fingers” what pedals will get me in this sound ballpark (what’s he using?) 

    That Strat neck looked ultra flamey too.  3

    They appear to have Mark Heap’s character from Friday Night Dinner on drums.

    Right so Kemper for live including The Live performance on Jonathan Ross then.

    Ah, I think there might have been some typing on the internet misunderstanding here then. I thought your first comment was saying that they used the Kempers for recording of the record (album) as well as for live. I think I might have misinterpreted you.

    Wow - this is a bad thread to come into and say I love the Seahorses album - I've got it on vinyl.
    You are the dreamer, and the dream...
