Hot August Night

Stealing the show with his mighty tower of power was Jonny Faoi.

I chose the beatiest passage I could to prove a point. Which isn’t to say it’s the most banging.

After that a trip to space might be in order.


With Henry Collins, Steve minimal impact and McCloud providing the Spirit of Gravity Quartet, and Safehouses Geoff Hearn providing the Saxello (curved Soprano Saxophone apparently).

The saxello was actually so loud at the show that hardly any of it needed to come through the PA, so this was about the only section you can hear Geoff. Unlike on the night when it was clear as a bell. If I’d been more organised we could have a microphone recording as well.

And dear, DearBritch hiding behind the curtains.


Reading from The Book, funny and frightening as usual. Again, Stuarts voice was hardly in need of the PA in this theatre space (Good ProjecTion there), so I had to tinker a bit to make him (even barely) audible from this desk recording. But aren’t the backing tracks great, though? And if you wanted hi-fidelity you wouldn’t be looking for it on a 96K mp3 of a live show would you?

On the Edge in May

Standing around trying to look interesting. May was our festival collaboration with “On theEdge” at the Open House pub in Brighton.

On the Edge do a weekly improvised live music event and once a month invite guests to play. It’s a great, very friendly night, we had a great time talked to a lot of new people and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Three pieces were played by the Spirit of Gravity Quartet. Here is the third in its entirety.

Sorry the blah is a bit brief, I’m busy with the Shitmat rmix CD (at last) and the ElMaes 7″, so its all go, but suffice to say – the Safehouse crew are great we love ’em!
