Earlham Street Breakout at Donmar Warehouse, London.  30th July 1989

Listening to the ‘Handscapes’ LP (below) and enjoying it after many years, prompted me to dig out my old cassette recording of the same trio. Funny how it’s easy to dismiss a recording you’ve made because of one little wrong thing.  I always thought this was a dusty sounding old thing, recorded rather distantly from the music, up in the balcony. Transferring from tape today, I was pleasantly surprised.  With the dolby on it’s not too hissy, at one point a baby cries, but it sounds pretty good really.  Anyway if you enjoyed Handscapes, you might want to hear this.

Bozo rightly commented that Akemi once played with saxophonist Chris Green. Consulting an old copy of WIRE (issue 49 March 1988), they played together in Coherents, producing K’Tah (Prime Tapes) and Red Shift (Prime LP).  If anybody has these, it would be good to hear them.
