Artefact

F104
Photograph
1979
F104 rehearsing at the Crowhill Community Centre,Ashton-Under-Lyne.
What's that strange contraption I'm using as a tremolo arm ?.When I bought this 59' Strat from a shop in Stockport(was it the Rhythm or Sound House,not too sure) it had been stripped down to the bare wood and some one for some strange reason had rather crudely bored out the tremolo hole on the bridge fitting making it much larger.After much determination, I invented the GRB whammy bar which was basically a garage roof bracket with a bit of tape on it for a handle.It did the job though !!.

Arnie, Have you got any copies of the poster for the gig at Crowhill Comunity Centre that we did with you in our 'Loose Weave' guise?

Sorry Dave I don't.....I wish I had !!
We got chased half way round Ashton by the cops after they caught us putting them up.
We never knew an Austin Allegro could go so fast !!.
