Stripped down but expressive melancholia
The closing five minutes of our 05 Dec 2009 gig at the Luna Lounge, E11, exactly at the point we dropped down from a 120 bpm rock-out that I'm not going to bother mixing. This, I think though, is quite special. Mike and Nick co-ordinate themselves winningly on the harmonic underlay, over which Chas does some excellent soloing from about 30 seconds in. I do a proper job of sticking to relatively sparse drumming for a change, and unusually for us, the piece is a whole is strikingly stripped down. About a third of the way it drops completely to just bass and drums. I know. Wow. Only the slightly premature ending hints that we were feeling our way, otherwise I'm enormously proud of this one.
