From immediately before the previous upload, ie near the end of the 07 Oct 2008 gig at Switch. When I wrote about this gig recently I reported that the rhythm section weren't firing on all four at this gig. But the Laffsta does brilliantly here, carrying along a Spanish-style groove that's almost 50% of what's going on here. And almost the other 50% is Mike's guitar, beginning with Spanish jazzy phrases and then exploring elsewhere. The Laffsta goes with him, while Os and I mainly do the percussion. I especially like the ending, where Os chips in some samples of the other two. Totally different from the way the piece started. And that is as good a reason as any for improvising during gigs.
