my point of view this gig was notable not only for a typically excellent
line up from Qu Junktions, with the charming intimacy of Mi and
L’au and ever hypnotic Alexander Tucker, but also the fact
that during my performance the ramshackle plank-of-wood-atopp-keyboard-stand
I call a ‘live setup’ collapsed, leaving me desparately
clutching bits of equipment hanging by cables from its remnants.
My main worry was that the sampler’s power supply would detach
itself, inevitably leading to the immediate deletion of all the
samples I was loading for the next track (this has happened before).
Mercifully it remained intact, and I was able to dust myself down
and continue. Afterwards gaffatape was suggested, and valuable lessons
in professionalism learnt.
Set list: a
present from the future, interrogation in an unknown language, Roman
roads/ Living on seaweed & moths
