Also this one! Not as immediately captivating as the Pine but I like the last three songs especially. Might be a grower. Same loose feel but not as intense. The CE-2 is in effect here and there with both, really nice.

What do you mean by LPS2, excuse me. I've seen older pictures of Kurt (think it was him at least) with a Les Paul type guitar.


Yeah, I'm friends with the HIA people as well, so I'm the one who kind of facilitated the release. I'm in a band with the guy who started it. If you're around Trondheim, we're playing our first gig during Kulturnatta.

LPS2 -> Les Paul Special 2. (Seems to be a '90s emo staple.)

JC-60 atm. I think JCs are the perfect pedal "platforms". At the new rehearsal space I'll hopefully use a Fender Twin Reverb. Seems like a 1976 model.

I use a Skychord Truck Loud for this purpose and it works great. Also has the potential to sound huge and mega loud. Also works as a clean boost. I don't think they make them anymore though so it would be hard to track one down.

I have a TL too! Keep it at the rehearsal space 'cause it's a great allrounder and yeah, always makes things sound huge. Right now it's in the loop of our TE bass amp, really makes it come alive.

That does seem to be true. I play a Gibson SG Special, also a guitar I've seen in many such bands.

We probably have a similar taste then. Big '90s (and current) emo head. I was exaggerating a little with "my neck of the woods", I'm about a 6 hour drive from Trondheim, but it would be cool to go there again.
