Yeah, I like Iron Monkey a lot. I have their self-titled CD and the Our Problem CD. I saw Church of Misery a short while ago in Birmingham, England. I recorded them, a bootleg. If you want to hear it, drop me a PM and we'll discuss how I'll get the files to you.

If you could upload that to mediafire and post a link, that'd be pretty badass(the COM bootleg).

Ya, I too have their S/T.  I got it at a local record shop for $7, but I've looked around and seen the CD go for as much as $199.  I also used to have the We've Learned Nothing split cd which was with Church of Misery.  It was a promotional copy, but it was stolen from me.  I was pissed.  Trying to get it back.  I found out who took it and made the kid give me $40.

Thanks for the upload.

The bootleg came out amazingly well, you can hear all the members of the band, but I must let you know, I recorded it in mono, since I only had a mono microphone and couldn't afford to grab a new stereo one before the gig. You can't tell it's in mono anyway, just sounds like any other set of bootleg mp3s, only a good recording. I have the whole show in one file, including the bit of the encore I managed to fit onto the disc in 320kbps, but I exported wav cut up into tracks at 160kbps. It's a fair bitrate, half of 320, so it's not low, I hope you enjoy listening to it all.

Oh, I actually spoke to Tom, the guitarist in Church of Misery at the show, and he told he had a Sunn Model T, as his main amplifier. So I told him I had a Sceptre, and he'd never heard of it, haha. He used a Marshall JCM800 that night that the band had hired, sounded killer!

A kind in my city that plays in a power violence band plays two of those towers.  I guess he got them for like $300 or something like that.  Sunn stuff is huge in my city.  It's probably the most sought after amp maker here.

i dont have any recordings up yet, but hopefully soon.  which city do you live in Addam?  i live about 15 minutes south of philadelphia and while they're some sunn followers most people dont care about it.  i got those towers for $100 from a recording studio, and believe me they're huge, atleast 5 feet tall, and ive never seen any with the 3 tweeters on the top before these ones.  the bass rig used to be my friend's but he moved to portland,OR  (ironic, huh?) and left it in my old drummer's basement for years and was given to me a few month's ago because his mom said it took up too much space.  the 412L was picked up by my current drummer for $250 and the marshall head for $500.  i got my sceptre stack for $550 off craigslist, where i also got my 1x15 and concert slave for $100. we play a cross between doom and harcore and i cant believe how loud this shit gets, and the speakers can take so much low end which is the best part, but i'm still trying to get a 1st or 2nd generation model t like everyone else here :mrgreen:

I live in Omaha, Nebraska.

Sunn amps here are being bought up so fast.  Every one wants them, but no one ever sells them, usually.

I just got the 60's 2x15, which I might run with the Traynor head in this picture. Otherwise, 73 1st Gen Model T, (2)612S, Traynor YBA-1A MKII, late 60's 215.

We don't have a van at this point, so playing my entire set-up isn't really possible in a live setting.
