Gus and I travelled to Winchester to do a set at Ancient and Modern, an excellent night run in a very nice pub, The Railway. Also on at The Railway that evening was Kirk Brandon of Spear of Destiny (in the big room) who wandered through when we were setting up and gave a cheery hello. We were joined by drummer Paul May and went down a storm, a very enjoyable set, and a collaboration which we’ll be doing again.
Thanks to Tom Bench of Brighton’s Hardworking Families, Chris and I got to play at the Sallis Benney Theatre on the bottom a fine bill that included Tom & Dylan Nyoukis doing a mood enhancing set, my old mate Henry Collins & Robin Foster rummaging and the wondrous Bohman Brothers bowing, shaking, stroking and spouting their way through a set that took in free playing of found objects and The Thundercats.
We never really play using amplification so it was a bit daunting having 2 mics, but it worked really well. The Sallis Benney is fairly big so we couldn’t have done it without mics and the sound guy was great. Tom sent through a recording and we put it on our Bandcamp.
There are also some great pictures of the concert by Agata Urbaniak
