Before we get started on this post, I wanted to post a quick reminder of the Pladask Elektrisk’s Gjengangar give away. I know that’s a mouth full, but I’m telling you, if you miss out on this give away – you’re sorta dumb. For reals. Pladask Elektrisk is a builder based out of Norway and the Gjengangar is a ‘gated’ delay. But saying it’s just a gated delay, I would be scratching at the potential of this pedal.

So a little while back an Effects Bay reader – Nick A., sent me some photos of Russian Circles’ gear and I posted that, which people were super into! Check out Mike Sullivan and Brian Cook‘s boards if you’re into Russian Circles. I was stoked that Nick sent me a few more pics of a recent show. This time it’s Page Hamilton of the great band of the 90s – Helmet.
When I saw that it was Page Hamilton, I had to go down memory lane. When I first heard of Helmet is was for the video – In the Meantime. Check it out:
I dug that pretty hard back then. I also remember, the rumors (could be fact – not sure) that they had the loudest shows (of all time)? Can anyone confirm or deny this? I never had a chance to see them live, so can’t reference the volume at all. But.. I sort of believe it.
So Helmet is still out there, and thank you Nick for hooking me up with a board shot. So let’s get to it!
