Fourth Page - Along The Weak Rope

July 1, 2011 5:53 PM

this is the title track off the first album from a band i've been playing with for a wee while. it's all improvised and recorded live at the bottom of a garden.

chatlie beresford - vocal
carolyn hume - piano
peter marsh - double bass
paul may - drums etc

if you're interested there's more about the album here and some video too.

I actually clapped at the end of this - which seems a bit silly given that I wasn't present at the performance, but there it is. Sylvian/Sakamoto territory. I'm a total sucker for this kind of stuff. Liked particularly the piano chord voicings and subtlety of all the playing, the overall restraint that increased the tension in the track beautifully, the breathy vocal stuff towards the end, and the general atmospherics/recording are just great. Lovely stuff - very well done to all. Please mister can we have some more?

Oh, sweet buttery Jesus. How did I miss this one? Smooth, smoky, tense, tiny...gorgeous. Glad to see you back, P.

Oh, sweet buttery Jesus.

lol. Reminded me that I was driving home from Bristol today along the A38, minding my own business, when I noticed a guy walking along the footpath lugging a large piece of wood. On closer inspection it turned out to be a cross, complete with a little wheel on the bottom. A real double-take moment. He didn't look much like Jesus Christ though, more like his heavier-set, rather hairier and less celebrated brother Mike Christ. Anyway - weird or what?
