Neil this is not only for you and Tom. Your old '74 Fender Jazz bass (you brought across to Au from NZ with Matt Taylor band) has been well used and much loved. It's been everywhere with me and reminds me of you and great times at Latrobe.
I wish I could sell it back to you... but I can't sorry :-)
Is that Janette (film strip) - She was fun.

That can't be me! Notice the Fender Jazz - still with the original pickups there.
I replaced Graeme Grenache on bass in that band. Amazing Graeme played through an 18" speaker from memory (because that's what you did in those days). My favourite cabs then were 15" speakers. Still bump into Graeme whenever I need an amp repair done he's the man.
We also did a stint at the Swagman. Huge barn of a venue. I played some keyboard and in some songs added a sequenced part.
The Neil Young Jazz bass again.
More notes on Rembrandts
Great to play with Max and Noel in the upstairs function room at Rembrandt's for a time. Very talented guys.
(above) The Melbourne Musicians club in St Kilda - regular gig around 11:00pm - 2am.
My white precision bass with brass scratch plate.
2015 joined James Ryan and Ali McDonald in forming the band Little Girl Blue. Great bunch. Very talented.
Playing at the Inverloch Jazz festival (2012, 2013?) with song writer and performer Nicky Chiswell. With Pete and Crispin Newmarch.
Nicky also used us as backing when she led music at the SUTS conference (2012-2015)
Lots of good memories. There were other band but no photos of them.Cheers
