  2. After years of being unseen by the public, Neil's Moving Pictures and Permanent Waves Tama Drum Kit has been reassembled and showcased in a new video on YouTube. It is in beautiful condition, and whoever owns it now has done a great job caring for it.
  3. The Anniversary edition of Permanent Waves came out a couple months ago. I was excited and for the most part happy. But I know not everybody will be 100% satisfied. What are your thoughts and opinions about it?
  4. Life in Surround is a YouTube channel (with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram tie-ins) dedicated to promoting great surround music. Rush have several great surround albums. Mike, from Life in Surround is a huge Rush fan, and here is a very touching tribute, which includes an overview of Rush in surround.
  5. Musing on a Saturday morning and wondering what would Permanent Waves have looked like if the boys had done a full side epic version of Natural Science. What track/tracks would have been sacrificed if any? I'm thinking Jacob's Ladder would be the track that would be dropped as brilliant as it is.
  6. I posted this song before on other threads, a few people asked about the gear used on the above track so here it is for anyone interested: Guitars: Aria Pro semi-hollowbody (90's) Fender Strat (modified) 82' Amp: '87 Marshall Jubilee 50watt head, 4X12 cabinet Effects: deluxe electric misstress, Boss ce-2 chorus, mxr phase 90, Morley volume pedal (no overdrive pedals used) Bass: 71' Rickenbacker 4001 Keyboards: various 'Moog like' soft synths Drums: 20 x 24 DW KICK DRUM 14 x 16 DW FLOOR TOM 12 x 14 DW FLOOR TOM 11 x 13 DW RACK TOM 10 x 12 DW RACK TOM 8 x 10 DW RACK TOM 5 1/2 x 14 Slingerland 1962 maple Snare 22" Paiste Dark Ride 17" Paiste Dark Crash 20" Paiste Reflector Crash 19" Paiste 2002 Crash 8" and 10" Paiste Signature splash 15" Paiste Dimensions Power Hats DW 9000 Double Pedals
  7. We've all seen the cover of the Permanent Waves album--the woman with permanent waves in her hair near a jumble of lumber, her skirt rising up with the breeze, walking away from a man whose arm is raised in a permanent wave, and a crumbled newspaper on the ground. The headline of the paper is blanked out, but what did it originally say? I remember reading, years ago, that the headline was the famous "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" that had been erroneously published on November 3, 1948, but I wanted to find out more about this paper. http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o371/x1yyz/permanentwaves-cover_zpsm6yij1js.jpg The cover we all know and love I am lucky enough to have access to some very high-quality scanning and image processing software so I did some work on this cover to decipher the paper. Scan, enhance 224 to 176, enhance, stop, and so forth. I was finally barely able to read the top of the paper! http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o371/x1yyz/permanentwaves-YBG_zpsl3lcvkrr.jpg The name of the newspaper Can you believe it? The name of the paper is Yukon Blade Grinder! I had no idea the Yukon Blade Grinder had existed for so long, and I certainly did not know of its involvement with Rush. Wow, now I really wanted to find a copy of this paper to see what was written on there. Unfortunately, this ended up being much more difficult than I had ever thought. The YBG newspaper seems to operate under the radar. They have no online presence and do not keep archival copies of their old papers. However, I located the city where the papers are printed and travelled there for further research. The night clerk at the YBG office is a slight, elderly man by the name of Finley Fergle. Finley absolutely loved that I was interested in the paper and was quite happy to talk my ear off. Most of what he said wasn't about the paper itself, but stories of some of the people involved with the paper over the years--Tom Clancey, Werner Herzog, Ella Fitzgerald, and more. Often his stories were interrupted by chipmunks running across the floor because he would get up to shoo them out and forget what he was talking about. When I asked if he might have kept a copy of the historic "Dewey Defeats Truman" paper he invited me to search the stacks of old newspapers at his cottage. http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o371/x1yyz/old%20guy_zps158swauw.jpg Finley Fergle at his desk Like any good hoarder, Finley has piles upon piles of old newspapers stored in his cottage. But (possibly) unlike many other hoarders, Finley's papers are stacked in chronological order, and in no time I was able to find the paper in question. (This may have been the actual paper used in the Permanent Waves cover photoshoot, but Finley couldn't verify that; the actual paper may have instead gone to line a bird cage decades ago.) Sadly, the paper we were looking for had been sitting directly on the floor and had incurred quite a bit of water damage so much of it was unreadable. I decided to take it back and send it through my scanning and imaging software to see what I could recover. http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o371/x1yyz/Dewey%20Defeats%20Truman_zpsvq5a1rtm.jpg The Yukon Blade Grinder edition used on the Permanent Waves cover It's not much, but there it is! The Yukon Blade Grinder in print, and the very edition used on Rush's Permanent Waves cover. What a fantastic discovery! This whole research project was time-consuming and often frustrating, but the end results mean it was worth it. And now this has me thinking--since there is a YBG presence on TRF, and since the guys in Rush have an odd sense of humour, does this mean Rush is somehow involved in the YBG posts? Maybe another research project is in store for me!
  8. I've always felt that the repeated piano note during the closing of The Spirit of Radio sounds like Geddy's proudest piano ever. Does anyone agree?
  9. Hear a brand new interview I did with Paul Northfield (producer / engineer of Moving Pictures, Permanent Waves, Signals, Exit Stage Left and Vapor Trails). A lot of great Rush stories to be had, and a great insight into the recording of those records. Rush stuff starts around the 26 minute mark. Also included are stories about working with Gentle Giant, Pat Travers, April Wine, Kim Mitchell, Ozzy Osbourbe, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree and others. You can hear the interview here:
