    Tom's Bass Blog 29 September 2016 | Comments (0)

    Herin lies Tom's full, uncut, vital statistics which wouldn't fit on the band page:

    Gear: Thomas wields a custom bass that was made for the Elven-Spider Queen's and Dwarven God of Rhythm's chosen hero. With threads woven by the metallic spiders of yore and wood formed in the primordial fires of rock, Thomas was pretty quick to steal it from the chosen hero. He has since been doomed to play it till the end of time for his crimes. He also uses a Trace Elliot Combo amp which he found on eBay. This is why we can't have nice things...

    Favourite band: Ever-changing, but currently Pink Floyd

    Favourite food: Rum

    Also seen in: Brakelight, Iago, and in the forest amongst his kin

    Biggest strength: Immortality and his arsenal of crap puns

    Biggest weakness: Anatidaephobia
