Did you ever get to see the Mars Volta play live? It was always an epic show creating and destroying musical boundaries. There was one man at the center of it all holding down the rhythm and bringing us that amazing low end. That man is Juan Alderete and as we announced on the LAMA site last week, he has joined the LAMA Bass Department as an Artist-in-Residence.

Juan has been on our radar here at the blog even before his turn with TMV. He played bass with LA noise legends Distortion Felix on their Steve Albini produced debut “I’m an Athlete” and his work with Racer X is equally cool. Juan has invested in his own musical projects of late including Big Sir and Vato Negro and recently launched the extremely popular website, He is endorsed by Fender Basses and Behringer.

Welcome Juan to the LAMA family! Will you be bringing some of your incredible pedals to class? To read the official announcement please click here.

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you
    can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

      there is a moderation/pending comments function. Unfortunately, it slows things down but there is always a threat of spam on the site so we’d prefer to check out each comment before allowing it to post automatically. Thanks for reading and hope you are able to sort the spam out!
