 TWW (Third World War) - Early Seventies

OOOOOh, that picture of a Watkins Copycat thru a chill into my aging bones. I can recall always carrying some cellotape to repair the tape when it broke. I used a Hagstrom 12, strung as a six thru a Vox AC30 with all controls on max, during a stint (1970-72) in a UK band called THIRD WORLD WAR . Thinking about it that Hagstrom had it's own sound, powerful too, I will have to check EBay and maybe pick one up. Anyway there is a picture of the band (must be around 71) at the Lyceum in London, in the recently TWW reissued double CD on Eclipse Records, complete with Hagstrom 12 at the ready. Terry Stamp, WWW.GSLMUSIC.COM  Los Angeles.

Craig Collinge (drums)

John Hawken (piano)
(of The Strawbs and The Nashville Teens, went on to "Illusion" - see below)

John Nightsbridge (guitar)
Went on to "Illusion" in the mid-'70s started by former-Yardbird / Renaissance member Jim McCarty

Photo 1971 ? at the Lyceum, London.

I think Eclipse Records is now out of business, but for info on anything to do with myself or Jim Avery you could put up the WWW.GSLMUSIC.COM site for us at your site. We answer all emails and of course sell the odd CD to the unsuspecting. We have just put our Chicago Video to DVD, expensive stuff, but the video sells good, for those interested in viewing Steve Albini's analog studio set up in Chicago, then for others it is like watching paint dry.

Yes, I once tore off three strings hitting the opening chord to Ascension Day (TWW song) they always broke across the bridge, I used the thickest strings I could find at the time. I would carry spare strings in my back pocket and would replace them in between songs while "bantering" with the audience.

The Hagstrom in the picture (according to Jim Avery, at that time I was in the States) was borrowed by Sid Vicious and of course was never seen again.

The area between the pickups was thick with congealed blood as I was always tearing my right hand into the bridge. Oh, Happy Day...........

P.S. What got me to recognise a Hagstrom early on, was that Bowie had one, an acoustic 6 string, sunburst, must have been around 1965, at the Wimbledon Palais, I think at that time he was going under the name of Davy Jones.

OK , sorry about the picture of the five yobo's by the wall !!! - Terry.

TWO FROZEN JACKS gsldvd001, DVD $40 a video doc of STAMP and AVERY recording in Chicago.
Contains most of the songs on THE COMPLETE CHICAGO RECORDINGS, gslmcd023,
Footage includes sound master, Steve Albini's analog studio, control room, set up and the recording
of Stamp and Avery, a must see for any future recording engineer.
GODS OF THE WEST gslmcd027 CD $10.
Well I had this idea of a CD containing two tracks each of any surviving
Third World War members that I could locate. John Hawken, Mick Liber, Jim Avery and myself
threw our "individual" talents into the pot and of course no one liked the others input, except me.
This CD is an adventure in sound and word, not for the run of the mill music lover,
but rather music addicts who delight in creativity and just plain originality.
Terry Stamp.
P.S. Plus I ain't heard "jack" from Liber.

Meanwhile... as an aside...
QUICK GUIDE TO THE SEX PISTOLS:

Managed by entrepreneur and wannabe svengali, Malcolm Mclaren

Before Johnny Rotten arrived on the scene, Midge Ure was approached about becoming the Sex Pistols singer.
Fortunately, he declined and went on to head up the New Wave band UltraVox

They caused a furore in the tabloids after swearing live on tea time UK TV

Most of the bands clothes were made by future design queen, and girlfriend to Malcolm,
Vivienne Westwood (Inventor of the bondage trouser)

Bassist Glen Matlock was thrown out of the band for the offence of 'liking the Beatles'

Sid Vicious was credited with 'inventing' the pogo - the ultimate minimalist dance style

"Ever get the feeling that you've been cheated": Johnny said goodbye at the band's terminal gig in San Francisco

The ultimate anarchy band had been manipulated as much as any other...

Sid killed his 20 yr old girlfriend Nancy Spungen in 1978 at the New York City's Chelsea Hotel,
then four months later took his own life - aged 21 in 1979
"Too fast to Live, Too young to die"

In a Gentler Mindset altogether, you could
apply the same Tag Line to the Hagst
röm Guitar Neck...
...or it could be oh so Pretty Vacant, these days...
- so go play your
Hagström NOW!

Peace  Freedom

There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?

Plenty has been said already and
will be said forever forward probably.
Only you know what's right for you!
