the spirit of gravity on mixing it part 2 (4.37 Mb)
Just over a year on from the last appearance on Radio 3’s Friday night experimental music show Mixing It, a track from the Shitmat re-mix CD gets an airing on 1st September 2006, with Dan’s track Ketamine Cauliflower (Broccolli dub mix) by the notorious c.h.a.v. being selected. No mention of the SoG Collective unfortunately – we’re just “a bunch of remixers”.
the spirit of gravity on mixing it (5.15 Mb)
The Spirit of Gravity gets a name check on Radio 3’s Friday night experimental music show Mixing It on 17th June 2005. The track played is Shitmat’s “The Rise and Fall of Billy Bunter Part 4”, taken from an SoG promotional CD – accompanied by some typical Mixing It banter.
New tracks from Rashamon, complementing a further 10 new tracks that make up the provisional new album

A new minimal impact track, just for fun, Irish Folk Music remix – for Tab
Following on from their two tracks on the Spirit of Gravity compilation Vol. 4, two more extracts from Malevich’s set recorded live at the Albert in February 2004, from the improvised piece “THe Hyphen and My Name”.
rashamon guitars of denial (3.09 Mb)
Lee Hume aka Rashamon was the first ever person to get interviewed on our Totally Radio show. He played and discussed tracks that he liked and submitted a half hour Rashamon mix for the members’ area. If you need more to indicate what the new Rashamon EP coming out in 2004 on High Point Low Life Records will sound like, here’s an mp3. In case you’re wondering, the samples are from an obscure Sebadoh spoken word B side. Much oblidged Mr Hume.
multiplex space v.02 (3.5 Mb)macao (4.4 Mb)
Recorded live at their Spirit of Gravity set on August 26th, two of about four new tracks that got an airing that night. The whole set is going to be made available to paying members of Totally Radio. Nick Rilke has aptly descibed their equipment set up for the gig: “Performing on the stage floor, the brothers are surrounded by all sorts of weird and wonderful electronic gadgetry ranging from laptop to vintage synth, vocoder, mini-samplers , kaoss pad and not forgetting the BIG-dildo shaped voice transformer!”
minimal impact spirit of gravity (edit) (2.49 Mb)
Especially for the this site, Steve MInimal Impact has done us a nice edit of his legendary tribute to the collective. It’s constructed around immensely distorted samples of tracks by all the SoG members The original epic 15 minute version can be experienced if you play track 7 on the most recent Spirit of Gravity compilation CD as loud as possible. Here is a compressed taster of the man who Shitmat has previously described as “Brighton’s Merzbow” and “the noisiest fuck I know”.
“The brilliantly misnamed Minimal Impact bring the whole festive jamboree to a conclusion with a particularly uncomfortable 15 minute assault on the senses which certainly sorts the men from the boys”. (Abi Rhodes -CCNEWZ)
waxed apple piano tune (3.78 Mb)someone told me (2.55 Mb)
Alright stop. Apple time. At long last we have some mp3s from an act that have rocked Spir tof Gravity nights more times than probably anyone else. And even when they’re not playing on stage you’ll find Caleb pionereeing away on the Electrocreche. The W ,The A, The X The E The D….. (Now lads, where’s that electro tune?)
hot roddy ramshaw comin out for a smoke? (3.46 Mb)
malevich untitled part 1 (5.21 Mb)untitled part 2 (5.15 Mb)
Recorded back in February at Club Quiet in the Marlborough Theatre here’s two slices of live noisey atmospherics from Spirit of Grav founders Rilke and Rimbaud. I remember that Sunday night was busy for Tony who also played with Henry’s LINEIN project and Minimal Impact as well as this formiddableMalevich onslaught.
rashamon fanfare.ogg (8.51 Mb)
Rashamon‘s live show on Tuesday 25th March at a SoG night at the Freebutt won them enough new friends to ensure that copies of their new Patchy Cop EP had sold out by the end of the evening. The addition of a bass player on stage to the familiar Rashamon line up of Lee’s laptop and Seb’s bass gave the sound a good boost. It also contrasted well with the more electronic sound of Mr Hume’s studio creations. Fanfare rounds off Patchy Cop in a way that sounds particularly good on sunny afternoons, but it’s well worth taking the time to download whatever the weather.

hot roddy ramshaw war on bongos.mp3 (2.74 Mb)
Here’s a nice not so mellow hot roddy tune built around recordings made at the big anti war demo in London in February. Amongst the frantic gabba speed snares, cries can be heard protesting about the hypocrisy and inconsistency of certain world leaders. One protester at the march was wearing a banner that said WAR ON BONGOS NOT IRAQ, providing the inspiration for this silly hardcore tune.
