“The Nite Shift” will enliven your party

Simon brought us his badass Futurama guitar (a Hagstrom III in slightly different costume) for a set-up and a small bit of electronics work.  It cleaned up beautifully and now plays like a cheese dream.  In the course of our conversation Simon revealed his Father had been in a band (as a drummer but it’s okay) and the guitarist in that band had played the same model of guitar.  To back up his tale he showed us a photograph of the band “The Nite Shift” in the early 1960’s.  Just one of hundreds of small bar bands playing in England at the time, a handful of whom would go on to become The Who, The Small Faces or Humble Pie.  Not these guys though.  They played and went on to other careers.  But look at those hopeful faces.  We’ve all been there.  I asked Simon to model his Futurama.  1963 meet 2013.

like Father like Son
