Sorry if this was mentioned, but did anybody order this from Wille Basse's web-site? It was one of my favorite albums from the 80's and it appears Wille reissued it himself. With shipping, it was over $30.00. I don't like to spend that much cabbage on a c.d., so I hope it's worth it.

Anybody in H.H. land pick this up yet? Any thoughts?

Well,

I purchased this back in October and it still hasn't arrived..I e-mailed Mr. Basse about the c.d. and he said my copy will be shipped late december. I e-mailed him again last week and no response. Yet, this fuckin guy has the c.d. for sale up on his website.

 

I don't want to be a prick to this guy (I like his playing), but I guess I can chalk it up to a learning experience..

Wow mate, really sorry to hear it. Mostly for the fact that it is such a huge wad of cash for one CD. What a prick that guy appears to be. Did you go through paypal? Too late to dispute?

 

And on another note, describe this CD to me please. I've never heard of this band before but the cover looks interesting. Who do they sound like?

Found a review here:

Paul Gilbert plays on this CD? Wow. Based on that review it actually sounds pretty good to me. I'd really like to check this one out. Never even remotely heard of it before...

 

EDIT: Downloading it now. :)

Reminds me a lot like KEEL.. Slash was also a part of this band, before they recorded anything..

Yeah, I heard some of the songs yesterday. Pretty cool. I could hear a definite Racer X vibe, and yeah, as you say, early stuff like Keel. I dug it, even if the vocals were a little harsh in places. ;) I'll try to get the whole thing on my Ipod to give it a good spin.

 

I saw Slash was in the band too. Craziness, wonder how I never heard of them.

It's been almost a year. I just got a package in the mail from Mr. Basse. It wasn't what I even ordered. He sent me the c.d. single with James Kottack, George Lynch, and himself. No letter, no explanation.

At least It wasn't a total loss... :doh:

    • Same for me.  I thought the first single was decent but nothing else grabbed me. 
    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-
