Thanks for the review. I'm interested to see Serafina Steer getting involved with a SO'H project. I really liked the only album she has made so far.

BBC Radio 3's Late Junction featured a tribute to BK (hopefully) available here for the next month:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08dns54

It features an 'exclusive' track by Sean's ensemble called Basil Pelynne (at about 56:00). It would be nice to know if the whole project is being recorded and released.



I've never been to Hull.



(Also a Broadcast track in there - he says how they were one of the acts influenced by BK)

Thanks for the link. Yep, I recognise 'Basil Pelynne' from Friday's performance. If they recorded this much (and the recording seems to be pretty decent quality, doesn't sound like a rehearsal tape), I do wonder if the whole thing is already in the can...

Didn't Serafina play on Can Cladders?

BTW: this is really lovely. Would love an album like this from the Sean O'Hagan/Tim Gane gang.

Oh yes. And she's made three albums, not one as I said. I really need to do the odd bit of research before posting stuff.

Thanks for the link, I listened at 55:00 so far, an interesting listen.

So, this was pretty good.

Full line up, in addition to Sean and Tim was:

John Telfer - Flute and Tenor sax
Serafina Steer - Harp
Marcus Holdaway - organ and electric piano
Dominic Murcott - marimba, vibes, electronics
Jon Fell - bass
Billy Brown - drums
Jane Weaver - voice on "I Start Counting"

As advertised, all newly-composed music apart from the cover of the theme song to "I Start Counting" at the very end, but with an obvious Kirchinesque element (e.g. the use of repeated melodies on a single chord). Performed as a continuous suite of about six sections, mainly scored but with some improvised bits, in particular the transitions between sections. At a talk this morning Sean said he wasn't 100% happy with how it had turned out ("the rehearsals were better"), but at the same time he said there were moments which were supposed to be a bit fragile and stuttering, so allowing for that the performance sounded fine to me.

Tim played a supporting role on rhythm guitar but an important one - I thought he pretty much held the piece together, particularly in the transitions.

There are no plans at present to repeat the performance but Sean said he'd love to have another go at it if another festival was prepared to put it on.

The support set by Revenu 2.2.1 was also good, mixing samples of Kirchin's recordings with jazz and electronica, and the evening was rounded off perfectly with a screening of the cult 1971 horror film The Abominable Dr Phibes (soundtrack by Kirchin), complete with live music interludes played on the massive Hull City Hall pipe organ.



I've been there in Hull and was really amazed. I'm a fan of High Llamas and Sean! That night was a true gift!
