The new 100+ minute Astral Social Club LP/CD combo is due for release in mid-October. You can hear it here:
I now have copies of the new trio LP I recorded live at last year’s TUSK festival with Oren Ambarchi and Mick Flower. The 35 minutes on the LP are the sum total of all the music we’ve ever played together as a trio, ie Mick and I had never played with Oren before and we had no rehearsal or soundcheck. It was a pretty wild set, Oren fitting right in and giving us a load of extra rocket-power, the packed crowd spurring us on, sound being great, etc etc. The LP is a good document of the night too. Hopefully we’ll be repeating this trio at some point before too long.
Also just out is another brain-frying Early Hominids CDR, “GOODBYE PA / NO MORE DTs”. This comprises two complete live performances at Leeds’ Wharf Chambers, and covers quite a bit of ground over and above our regular electronic ache. So much so that various of our past supporters have found sections of it wildly objectionable.

We made up around 50 copies of this CDR to distribute at our recent Cafe Oto gig, and came back with a small number.
A full hour’s worth of binaural recordings from last summer’s sessions at The Chapel Lab, all packaged in individual covers printed by Adam Davenport.
Hot-to-trot music by Julian Bradley, Neil Campbell, Adam Davenport, Michael Flower and John Godbert, all copies now gone.
