"Frame of Gnomes", perhaps?

Last night I uploaded a tune to Bandcamp from a project currently in the works. Think of the track as a beta version of Windows, sans the ruthless corporate tactics and the BSOD... whatever that means. This preview will be available online until the end of the week.

*Edited 2 June 2014: Track has been removed.

Essential auditory action

Essential Logic on the bill with Au Pairs, The Raincoats, The Pop Group, John Cooper Clarke, and The Slits at the Beat The Blues Festival, 15 June 1980. Bonus treat: "Shaking Our Shake", a tune which does not appear on any of their studio releases (though this song repeats several times in its entirety from its commencement until the end of the clip, which of course means "The Order Form", "The Captain", "Martian Man", "Eugene", and "Wake Up" are absent from the video).

A wee little eleven and a half minute ditty

The first track released under the Brokegrove Lads moniker, which is a tip o' the hat tune to the late Mick Farren. From our inaugural (and presently, sole) improv "one-taker" recording session on Boxing Day at Eagle Audio Recording with Britt Robisheaux behind the boards.

Me: guitar and vocals
Robert Kramer: bass
Ken Shimamoto: guitar
Terry Valderas: drums, synth, and organ
