Pictures (band, guitars & amps)
Official Team Photo 1998: Michael Nagorsnik (bass & vocals), Hans-Jürgen Bardenhagen (guitar & vocals), Thomas Harms (drums) - from left to right.
Horizontal: possibly my favorite band picture because of the healthy tan.
Slide attack: the monster - my Hofner 125 ("Club 40") slide guitar with additional Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck at the bridge position, as well as the Tokai LS120 and the Strat again.
Under construction: my Hofner archtop - or like they called it back in 1963 - "Schlag-Gitarre" 465/S/E3, still waiting for her restoration.
"Rose-butt": the back of the Hofner 465/S/E3, the sides are made of laminated rosewood as well.
Bassman: the other monster, has killed every other amp yet - certified since 1962.
Plexi power: '69 JMP 50 Tremolo combo with two original Celestion G12H30 greenbacks (55Hz). More pictures in the forum thread about this rare bird.
"Boogie, baby": my first "real" amp, a '79 Mesa Boogie Mark IIB on a self-built 1x12" Thiele cab with an Electro-Voice EVM-12L.
Ibanez 60 TE: my first amp, not that bad for a solid state model, with switchable preamp and equalizer.
Playlist: Our demo recordings - just click on it, and the browser should automatically play them in the following order. You can also jump back and forth in this list then. By the way, these are old demos from our rehearsal room and live gigs, but you can find newer recordings or remixes and live videos on the Bluezz Bastardzz sites at Myspace, Last.fm, Facebook and YouTube.
