Truly a gift from the gods...
I want you to think about The Simpsons for a moment. We all have a perception or hope that we are all Bart's because he's the cool one. As we grow older we slowly come to realize that we were never Bart at all. Instead, it begins to dawn on you that we are all, in fact, Homer's. Slovenly, gluttonous and the opposite of hip. Now, let me explain how I've somehow drawn a crazy correlation between Green Day's studio debut and The Simpsons.
Honestly, amongst my modest seven synths or so, this is my current favorite and has captivated me since it’s purchase. The filters wail, patching is powerful, and the modulation capacity is wobbly. Do not underestimate this synth for a moment. It may not be the prettiest out there, but god damn does it get the job done.
I go to a lot of shows. A. Lot. In the past year I saw Radiohead twice, Nine Inch Nails at Radio City, Queens of the Stone Age in Atlanta for the Shaky Knees festival, and Portugal. The Man at Forest Hills to name only a select few. To list them all would require far too much effort than I have brain cells left for.
