lengthy but beautiful downbeat gig ending
From the very end of the 06 Aug 2008 gig at the Plough. This feels like it's going to end about half way through. Then it carries on with more of the same until you start thinking it never will end. Then it slips into something slightly funky and quietly tries to go off somewhere weird, before going off altogether. All of which is a very crass summary that belies the lovely passage of music from the trio of Mike, Steve and Nick here, while Os and I fill in around the sides. It's a whole 10 minutes but I don't get bored at all. Rhythmically rambling and ambiguous, harmonically smooth and sorry-sweet. A fine if slightly blue (as in unhappy) alternative end to a gig from our usual upbeat major key thing.
