A retrospective release of live and studio recordings from around 1990.
I originally formed this band in the late 80s, to develop some instrumental compositions and playing styles I had in my mind. It’s a first incarnation of the band, which has since moved on. These tracks are live recordings from around the late 80s. Tracks 7,8,9 were recorded by Greg Muden at Woodcray Studios, sadly now defunct.
Live band Musicians: Phil Todd (saxes and flute), Ralph Salmins (drums) Paul Dunn (guitars) Pete Lemer (Keyboards) Gary Kettel (Percussion)
