In 1999, we held the first ModCon event in this health-hazard of a building in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 
One of the hardest things about organizing underground body modification events was always finding a space that was willing to look the other way while we spent the weekend having bloody good fun. The compromise was usually to find a shady space with shady owners. How this building wasn’t condemned is beyond me. 
I brought Sean Philips by to check the space out in 2001 and we were surprised to find it still standing.

Wrote a fun new riff today and I couldn’t figure out how to progress on to the next section. After a day of trying things that sounded crap, the answer came to me when I was walking up the stairs. It worked itself out so naturally from there!

I used to write a handful of riffs ever week and then for weeks I could barely pick up the bass, let alone write new things. I forgot loads of the stuff I had written too (I have them recorded though) but I’m feeling good, so I should just be able to write a shit ton of new ones.

Also, I’m hopefully moving up to a 5-string bass soon
