Quality stuff guys!

Another fave of mine.

Magazine - The Light Pours Out of Me

or the ever intense.

Magazine - Motorcade

Thats badass. Adamson on a Ric is mind boggling - I saw them play Seattle in '79 and he was playing an Ovation Magnum. One of the truly underrated bassists/bands of the "wave" generation.


I felt the same way! Been a huge Magazine fan since my first delving into "post-punk". Its like a match made in heaven, and his physical playstyle looks very fitting for a Ric. I would love to have seen them in the late 70's, envy you even!

You mention his Ovation.. well its a shame to say that I have read that was his primary bass as I would love to imagine in my head that he has some deep brand allegiance to Rickenbacker.

Same can be said for this next bassist I suppose. Who has sponser hopped a bit in his day, but remains a very prestigious bassist in Germany. However he has in his time utilized a few Ric basses.

Kraan - Sarahs Ritt durch den Schwarzwald

As I have often said my favorite performances including a RIC were those by The Fall in the late 80s, f.e.:

(The videos are not very impressive, but the music and the live performances were great.)

Never knew Brix played a Ric!

Absolutely amazing.

"This Nation's Saving Grace" is one of my favorite albums ever, and Mark E Smith is a true urban poet to the highest degree.

My first post and "Hello" to the forum!

One of my favorite live locations in Bremen:

MONOPILOT performing 'startklar' for the first time at M.S. Treue Bremen (http://www.treue-bremen.de), a (swimming) ship build of concrete (not kidding) that is now a club with gastronomy and live concerts...

Yes! That's excellent - typical Rickenbacker sound maybe with a light touch of a flanger - instantly recognizeable (sp?) I love it!

PS ricmic - not Titas (pronounced Tit Ass...) ... but Titus :o) (sorry...)
