Following at the link, the Zombie reference was because you had revived a thread from 2013 (which in turn had already been revived from 2010).

As to the cab. I've not owned that particular model but it did remind me of gigging a reflex cab (with possibly a single 15" or even 18" speaker?) back in the early 80's. Probably driven by some woefully under powered HH head.

I had some fun carting that around the Working Men's clubs of the North of England. Happy days.

1. My little firm probably built the innards of that HH amp.
2. Valve watts is beeter nor transistor watts. My Orange was supposedly 120 valve watts. Either way it was loud enough to work in the Hammersmith Odeon at an acceptable level... It did get louder the further away from the stage you were, which was a bit confusing, though.

Now that the question has been satisfactorily answered can I make the obligatory 'disappointing follow-up Jeff Buckley album' joke?
