Man, I've heard most of your set [with zBug ], it was fuckin' brilliant! What you do on your bass [ NS Design CR6-string electric cello ] is amazing, ok it's amazing, REALLY amazing! Ah, so impressed... what your first song reminded me of was... [ Airto Moreira's Nativity featuring Jaco Pastorius ] of the greatest things I've ever heard in my life.
