Wow...I don't know whether I feel more like playing "Pipeline" or "I Wanna Be Sedated." Today's subject: the Univox "Hi Flyer," a copy of the Moserite "Ventures" model that ended up becoming a classic in its own right; so much so that Eastwood Guitars is now making a series of new "Hi Flyer" models that they claim as a copy of the Univox (and not the Moserite!). Not to mention that they look like mighty fine guitars and basses themselves! But, I digress...
Thanks go out to today's sources: Tim Patton of Univox.org for the great info on his site; the Univox review pages of Harmony-Central.com; the equipment pages of the band, Psychotic Reaction; and Eastwood Guitars. Thanks, everyone!
And, of course, we can't forget the Podsafe Music Network and the band's that provided this episode's background music. If you like what you heard, please cruise on over to the Opinionated Ramblings Indie Music Podcast to hear them in their full glory, plus get links to the band's websites. You'll find these songs on Podshow #38, but here's the skinny: "Sun" by The Velmas, "Brand New Sunglasses" by The Jellybricks, "Sunshine Between" by Fred, "Flattened by the Sun" by The Negatones, and "Big Bad Sun" by Chris Juergensen (yeah...there's a theme here).
