Thanks PD! That album did well and following on from my first album and the album I made with Ted Hawkins, it really put my music into the media's attention, especially in the UK and Europe. That track got a lot of radio, but more than that it was a favourite in clubs and raves. Good track to get off your head to! I can't believe it is 30 years old.
The band on that track was...
Jeffro Robertson - Drums & percussion And Crowdy - Bass Ed Genis - Guitar Tim Hill - Tenor Saxophone MM - Vocals & Lap Steel
I have to open mine up again to set that transducer in place. This is what it looked like at one time. The colored wrap is starting to peel and the body is starting to split but the cover plate seems to hold it all together. I'm not adventurous enough to try to take off the front plate as I don't seem to have any issues with the block and I can deal with the dents in the cone. Does anyone have the specs on the screws that hold the plates on? It only came with a few originals but I'm not sure how to describe them and replaced them with what was handy but I think they're stainless and probably should be chrome.
