bass plateau followed by upbeat chiming second half
A piece of two halves, from less than 15 minutes into our 08 April 2009 gig at the Plough. The Laffsta and I stamp out a compressed pulse at the beginning and Mike sweeps around some atmospherics. But some magic really begins after about 50 seconds when Os takes over with a looped organ chord and Nick sustains a crucial perfect 4th and 5th on the bass. We wonder around whirling and building it up a bit for a few surplus minutes as it plateaus off onto an industrial assembly line of bass parts. This is rescued by Os gradually going tremolo, and as I drop down the percussion, he picks up his EWI and loops up some flute sounds. Finally as the Laffsta chimes in, I celebrate with compressed cymbals.
