Two deliberately very different sessions to each other, trying out different new combinations of instruments. The laptop I'd been using for weirdly manipulated samples had developed a fault, and thus it wasn't used at all in the October session, instead I made use of some rhythm programming I'd sussed out on the guitar synth. I'd also got a cold and wasn't so focused, which meant Steve and Dave more space to lay on the fudge big time. Naturally that meant some overlong pieces that needed judicious pruning. For the December session I'd got the laptop working again, with some wicked rythmic and instrumental samples, and Dave brought along a new toy - a Stylophone! This meant a rip-roaring intense session was inevitable!
The resultant 2CD is a hefty, powerful and very long outing that goes many places that we've never been before. Prepare to have your socks blown off!
