Basschat South East Bash 2018

So we got to the time of year for our annual bass-themed catch-up in Addlestone, thanks to organisers Hamster (Colin) and Silverfoxnik (Nik).

London Bass Guitar Show 2015

Had we been remotely inclined to listen to its detractors’ bleating in the run-up to the event, the London Bass Guitar Show 2015 was going to be The One The Biggest Manufacturers Did Not Bother Attending and The One Where The Noise Is So Bad You Can’t Hear Yourself Thinking, Let Alone Playing Bass and...
