i have a few fcs slideshows too! it takes ages to upload them...several hours! so if you know any way of doing this quicker...?

also i think if you use this tag:

...it might embed a pic-link on the site to click. you might even be able to use the "embed" link, which makes a play button appear magically on your site!

hope this helps

Cheers for that Mel, been waiting for you to upload some Bastion

Members were (can't remember full names):
Mason on guitar, Sean on bass and vocals and the drummer I can't remember. Masons brother Titch I seem to recall played with them now and then although not permanently.

I actually liked them a lot although they were looked down upon by the other bands within the scene and they didn't really maximise their potential. They were every bit as good as Amnesia who were probably their nearest rivals in the thrash scene (Amnesia got a record deal as well).

The funny thing is Bastion were around from about 85' so were there from the beginning and just about everyone in the thrash scene played with them at some point (most of GGF for example)

It was Andy Mason on guitar!! Knew I'd remember eventually

The Amnesia album was ok actually although they did sound like a poor mans Testament, unfortunately by the time it was recorded they'd booted andy longley out. I've got a copy of it on cd, bought it for a pound from Record Collector. I've seen it go on ebay on vinyl for 10!!!

Was the drummer of Cosa Nostra called Dave or Bol as some people called him? If it was, I know him and can ask for you.

Yeah, it's the same fella I know. He's still drumming. I just started a band up with him, hoping to be gigging by the end of the year.
