What piece of equipment do you have to show us today?

My Boss FB-2 Feedbacker/Booster.

How did you come across this particular item?

Was looking for the older Feedbacker/distortion Boss did, and these had just come out the week prior so I snatched one up.

What is that you like so much about it?

I like how I don’t have to be standing by my amp to blast feedback, so I can do it whilst singing and completely drown out my voice ‘cos I can’t sing for shit.

How do you use it, and how has it shaped the way you write music?

To use it you just step on the motherfucker – so even I can wrap my head around that. I guess all our songs were gonna have feedback puffed over them any way so it doesn’t shape the songwriting, but it’s easier to manipulate than the usual way so you can get freaky with it.

Any other interesting points/stories about it?

Not really, it’s just a guitar pedal.

Tell us a little bit about what you have coming up?

Got an album in the mail so will do some shows early next year when she’s done.
