Unsettled rhythm in every other bar, with loud but soft ambience
About an hour into our 21 Apr 2010 gig at the Plough, and we launch into something largely uncharacteristic of anything else in this catalogue. The ambient textures may be present, but with zero groove. The drums and bass are clearly having fun, Nick with his massively distorted crunch bass, yours clatteringly making noise for only bar in every two. Whole beats are silent. Mike is unfazed. Os told us afterwards he was wondering when the piece was going to start, though it doesn't sound like he was fussed, building up lofty textures behind Mike's spacey picking. It all works. One of the few things I actually remember playing, thinking now that I've started out like this, why not carry on?
