Four sets in a week, three on the same night no less. I played at Aural Detritus, two Nil sets sandwiching The Static Memories; then Gus and I collaborating with Ripsaw Catfish at The Scope the following Wednesday. All good, I’ve listened back to the Nil set and it sounded great, more of the ritualistic stuff and less comedy which possibly suited a gallery setting and maybe a new direction for a bit. The collaboration with Ripsaw Catfish I really enjoyed, it was an honour to play with Cath and Anton – and Gus of course – and we got a great reception from the crowd at The Scope.
Phew. It was surprisingly tiring though, I don’t know if it’s the festive season but I haven’t plugged anything in and made a noise for over a week. Me and the girls made a Tin foil rustle (that’s what we called it) which is bits of corrugated tinfoil stuck on a willow whithy and blown or tapped.
Plus, Graham Duff gave The Static Memories an honorable mention in his pick of the top albums of the year Here
