Selections from Groid LVIIII (A State Of Mind) as recorded in 1986 straight to a stereo reel to reel tape machine or at most bounced between a pair of them.
Ian & Simon of
BOB have recently reconvened as Kings of Dynamic Party Sound.
Slowly getting the tools in place for the summer offensive. Video done after the fact as I had my hands full playing and knob twiddling.

I’ve just requisitioned a new plectrum from stores.
I may have to cut some of this beverage based number. Perhaps the historical background and horticultural detail could stand a little trimming. Whilst having an effects sort out I put my 1986 line up back together (with the Moollon substituting for an Italian Crybaby that died long ago). By the end of that year I’d decided it was far too much effort and didn’t use effects live again for twenty years.

From supporting The Brilliant Corners in Brighton, as given away by the Medley at the end.
Numbers = drum machine sequences. Chords are unrelated.

Also given away by having the video.
