The Grease Box, what the fuck is it?

Fuzz tones for the musically outrageous and mentally overdriven.

Dave, I think this is your best write up yet. I love the list including Reagan and Brittany Spears followed by the terse sentence "Satan rules supreme." LOL!

I loved Diamond Head. Listened to this all the time...still got it somewhere along with a white label copy of Lightning to the Nations.


Saw them at the Apollo in Glasgow bunch of times too, and once somewhere else, a smaller place in somewhere fucked up like Kilmarnock or Peebles or Galashields or somewhere like that. They were definitely the best of that whole NWOBH thing, but they just missed the boat when Iron Maiden sailed off leaving everyone else behind.

This is going to be one bad ass pedal. I don't know if I can stand for the 80s to make a comeback though...
Dear Bongo, No.

Borrowed Time is an amazing album, I discovered Diamond Head with this album in the early 80's...I only bought it cos I liked the cover. I had a thing about fantasy album sleeves.

Very cool, a new tonal area for me to explore.

Ha! It is cool to see other folk here who dig Diamond Head. I got into them through Metallica, I think the B side to Creeping Death got more plays then the A.

Lighting to the Nations is an awesome record. I used to just play to mates when several beers had been drank as a 'hey, this is cheesy as fuck but kinda cool' thing, then I started to really like it. I did the same thing with ZZ Top, Kiss and AC/DC :hihi: ....I also did it with the Bee Gees but they didn't sound so good after I stopped taking Acid :smashed:

It'll be ok as long as every one leaves the fucking Chorus pedals in the pawn shops where they belong..


btw there were some fuzzy holdouts in the 80's too
