five guys explore guitar sample with uptempo but controlled workout
From the 06 Aug 2008 gig at The Plough. An example of improvisation working really well. Os finds the perfect Mike sample and loops it, Binksy begins with rhythmic tension before breaking into more florid soloing that was just as much fun to watch then as it is to listen to now. Nick and I take the rhythm section for a walk, then break into a jog. We drop the intensity but keep the pace while Mike inimitably sweeps guitar over the temporary calm, before the whole thing ascends into organised chaos, with Os perfectly placing octave-shifted violin in the final ramp-up.
