ambient drum-n-bass soundcheck

Added 2008-06-11 22:47:09

From the beginning of the 28 May 08 gig at Ember. And I mean the very beginning. The soundcheck. The wire-up. We didn't even know Os was recording, and this is pretty much from the moment he pressed the button. As such, there was never going to be a great deal of musical meaning here, as we (particularly I) checked levels and settings, but it's worth a listen all the same. Os provides the general air conditioning, Mike makes sure stamping his feet in various places does the right thing, and I drift in and out of amusing the Laffsta with drum-and-bass clatter and patter. The drums are fun, but as is so often the case, the beauty is when they stop.
