Silly me. Big Grin

Well, there is what maybe appears to be a 'Rocket from the Crypt' LP on show (I'd never heard of them, but a www search found a band by that name). I did have a quick listen to one of their tunes (on Amazon), but it wasn't my thing (sounded like heavy metal) so I stopped it after just a few seconds.

You have eagle eyes Briain.

Even the image you have posted, it is hard to see the album cover.

My image only stays on for a second, before being covered by the Forum text.

I like your idea of changing images for the background on a rotating basis.

RE: Website Background Image
Interestingly, searching images for the band name doesn't show anything that looks like that sleeve art, so my guess is that either someone (at Linn) might have selected a rare or bootleg album cover, or perhaps someone at Linn knows the band (or they perhaps they are all Linn customers)? Either that or the album was so awful that the music company deleted it and purged the internet of its artworks (if the band are all Linn owners and thus reading this thread, hopefully y'all do realise that I am not at all being serious; I'm just generating some harmless humour for the benefit of other forum readers, of course)!

KDS/1 (music) + ADSM (AV) -> KK/1 -> 350A + miniDSP time & phase aligned 345 rear sub
KDS Renew -> Homebrew fixed attenuator -> 2250/D -> 212 and Sizmik front sub (bedroom)
MDSI -> 104C (awaiting installation in my kitchen)
MDSI -> Shahinian Arc (installed at my mum's house)

More likely, the band is composed of Linn employees. TongueBig Grin

Checking out the songs on the album, I found the following tracks:

Exakt City Blues

The Wife Tells Me I Can't Do The Katalyst Upgrade

The Gilad Boogie

Glasgow Woman

My Scotch Is Only 12 Years Old Blues

Give the Sondek A Spin

Klimax Rocks

RE: Website Background Image
Bearing in mind 'The Hives' are also on there, my wager would be a poster/flyer for a gig or some other musical event.....




P.S. Paul, 'The Gilad Boogie' sounds like it might be a fab tune, any idea where I can get a copy, preferably in hi-res?

Sorry Pete, I dont have a copy.

But I think it is a jazz, classical, hip hop, rap, country hybrid tune, sung to the lyrics from “It’s a Wonderful World”. Tongue

The background picture looks like they have the names of the bands who have performed at this pub/theatre printed onto the stairs, as you walk up the stairs into the theatre?
