    Well hello Mr. Merv, glad to see you've decided to say hello! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say your music has been an inspiration to us for many years now... and hopefully for many more to come. Hope you stop by here more often.

    PS. Those classic Ozric waterfall arpeggios... please, how? It's been bugging me for years.

    I had my blinding revelation and introduction to proper psy at an eat static gig at the Megadog Midi Circus! That was bloody years ago, think I'm showing my age...
    And I bought a waldorf microwave because of 'Epsylon' which is still the all time number one chunky psy noodle baker, so its good to have you on (the) board

    Hi Colin...hehehe,well the first thing you need to get is a Sequential Circuits Pro-One synth...Ed swears by them...(did you know also,if you take one apart and look deep inside,you will find a stencilled Shiva on the circuit board?)...they are also very easy to sync to a track,using the audio in trigger...then just pile shitloads of echo on top and you are away...you can also transpose the sequences by hitting different keys...one of our fave synths! Anyway,enough secrets given away for one day! I'll charge you for the next one! :rolleyes:

    Alternate...thanks....it was about time i looked in... yep,that was a while ago! (93??)...how is the microwave? Never heard one...was considering looking at one a while ago as Waldorf never actually finished the Wave....i still have a few buttons that do nothing and the software was also never finished...still,even for half a synth,it's still a monster!

    Hey Merv, good to see you on Psyforum Dude!!! I told you about here ages ago.
    Lucky bugger off to play with the Mushi Boys, show them how it's done then init...

    How was Mexico, didn't have much luck meeting the dodgy guy then? sounds like your getting a bit strung out there.

    I know you said you hadn't been confirmed, even though you were in the listing, but R U going to be playing at Glade Festival then? Cause it looks like Glade Stages have pulled out of Glastonbury Festival... So I don't have any work there and £120 a ticket is stupid. I need a Static Fix over Summer, so please play at Glade Festival!! Hoping for some Static Madness in a field near me soon, Laters Geoff.

    and..... If I remember correctly, the support act was Junkwaffle, correct me if I'm wrong. Any Ideas how I can get a hold of some audio from them ?

    Shroomy...cheers matey..its been good to spot a few familiar faces and new ones!

    Geoff...yeah,been meaning to drop in,but you know how my time is always sucked up...but i'm on holiday for once this week! Have still not located the dodgy Mexican,but have spoken to him on the phone and believe i am seeing him this very night...so looking forward to my eyes wobbling later...plus i am off to see Ozomatli live which should help!
    Not sure what the crack is with Glastonbury yet,but have been told we are playing something somewhere there...and we'll probably be doing the Glade festy if it all comes together (you know what these councils are like!)...I'm sure you'll get a fix somehow...we are doing a stint in early June with gigs in Nottingham and Northampton plus the London show on June 10th....will get details on here as soon as i get home...

    Hi Pslightly...yes,i actually cant remember playing my local town with Static at all,but people tell me it definitely happened! We will probably do something there again as they have been in touch with me recently...I dont think much audio came out in the end from Junkwaffle which was a shame..there was the 12'' on 'Cup Of Tea' records and the 12'' for Planet Dog...and i think they put a couple of cassettes out which i have copies of somewhere...Its actually the guitarist from that band who is the main man behind the Glade and Avalon stages at Glastonbury festival now so he never gets much time for music these days...plus he is a well establised painter so is always away abroad,usually in Africa...

    Stix...hehehehe no problem! Its funny how many people decide to choose us to celebrate their birthdays with...anyone would think we make music to take drugs too!! And i guess you saw us in those freaky frocks then! It had to happen one day...and Joie seemed to want to start wearing them regularly for gigs though i got pretty tired of constantly hoisting my fake tits up! :lol:

    Lotus...well,you have a good memory mate! I'd forgotten all about that track! (Shit,was that really 1990?)

    Fil...thanks alot! Actually,it seems like there are quite a few musicians and bands here that i would be interested to check out...any demo's/tunes are welcome to be sent to me as i'm always looking for stuff for when i DJ...the weirder the better!

    love n vibez

    Hi Benji..

    Of course we still make trance! We just like to diversify now and then,probably more so when we do lp's...but the live set is still out n out banging trance/acid tech stuff...Been doing various one off tunes for different labels over the past couple of years,including TIP,Twisted,BNE and Solstice...and we're about to start the 10th studio lp..
