If you want silence go and live in the country you cunt, and take your orange face with you.
with my room on the detached bit and with the attached being student accommodation, win win
They don't give a fuck and no one keeps me awake
Funnily enough next door only mentioned noise when my bass amp was stuck on max volume.
I mean unless you're banging on the walls etc and being a twat then they have no complaints. I presume you're just playing your music loud? Mine's blaring now, and fortunately we don't get any complaints from next door.
it's only a 30W valve amp, I was running it at half power as well! (Volume was at about half! Ridiculous..) Good point on the time, it's not like it's after 10pm or anything.
i usually wait until about 11pm to complain about noise.
he's about 10 so he more than likely has school in the morning so around 9 I regrettably tone things down a bit, but I like to think it's anyone's right to be a bit noisey during the daytime!
you can make as much noise as you want, i'll go out. but between then, i'm going to be asleep, shut up.
if you're disturbing people unnecessarily. Obviously a certain amount of noise is inevitable within reason.
maybe the orange man and you can reach an agreement. also look into sound proofing or put the amps on the ground floor.
I've got the dual terror, as it seemed like a nice little portable amp.
I'd be happy to have talked to shitface but he's just threatened me with calling noise pollution etc, and his tone of voice just makes me feel taking his eyes out.
or does he do it to himself deliberately?
It's certainly not a natural colour. Imagine if you spent 10 hrs a day rubbing fruit salad chews into your skin- that's the colour we're talking here.
make a point of putting on some sunglasses to shield your eyes.
he shouldn't be able to be aware of anything you're doing unless it's some form of housework between the hours of 12pm and 5pm. Them's the rules.
I lived in Switzerland for a bit, you were supposed to wee sitting down to reduce splashing and noise, and the police shut down our barbecue one night at about 10pm as the smell of cooking meat could have been annoying our neighbours.
a few weeks ago, around half 5 on a saturday afternoon i was listening to some music at a reasonable volume, not quiet but not blaring out and the woman knocked on my door and as soon as i opened it tore into me really aggressively about the music, i was completely taken aback and apologised politely, there was no need for her to be so aggro about it.
im so bad at telling stories
Some people are just plain twats.
it's quite annoying living next to/near 'musicians'.
Have you not got headphones?
Speakers push the air y'all.
I've lived next to a (shit) guitarist before where he used an amp and it was massively annoying. Time of day wasn't even the issue - even if it was mid-afternoon it was still annoying when you're just trying to watch a film or something.
I play bass and wouldn't dream of playing in my flat without headphones.
But if he's only mentioned it once and is being a bit of a dick about it, then he's a bit of a dick.
Already use one two nights a week for band practice, so that's when I get the chance to crank up the volume.
He's not got kids thank fuck, hopefully he never will so his genes die out. The previous owner had two kids and never said anything, and was actually friendly.
Playing through a full stack, or playing drums would be.
what disturbs other people. Though I can't really comment as I've got no idea how loud we're talking or how thick the walls are.
It's a new build so the walls are super-thin which doesn't help.
His office is about 5m away from the one I work in.
they play awful bonker compilation grade party music through to 3 or 4 in the morning on week/work nights.
one of them will stay up most of the night playing guitar and he can only play two songs and he can't play either of them very well at all.
they have cunt friends come over and have rows in the street outside.
and when we had a christmas party they tried to come up, then asked us to sell them some drugs when they couldn't come in.
i imagine the time when their isn't shit happy hardcore or inept guitar playing happening they smoke weed and watch American Dad.
at least family guy has one joke in it
our neighbours in one of the houses behind ours have got a yappy dog, and i think they must shut it in the garden when they go to work or something because it's out there ALL DAY non-stop barking. either that or they've got a recording of a barking dog that they play really loud whenever they're out to deter burglars.
from people who live in Covent Garden complaining about noise from late night refuse collections.
UH, DON'T LIVE ON NARROW CITY CENTRE STREETS FULL OF BARS IF YOU DON'T WANT NOISE. would you rather the rubbish bags be left in the streets all night for the hobos to rip open?
