Piers Hernu – Before The Bomb (Live Collyers 1985)

An ambient synth diversion performed by Piers Hernu on Roland Juno 106 and Korg MS10 at the DIMLight Production, ‘One Night At Collyer’s’, the local Sixth Form College in Horsham. It was captured on a knackered old Revox A77 with Sound Associates editing modification.

Other turns on the bill, as effusively reviewed by David Hatto for the Soundwave column in the West Sussex County Times, were: Christine, ‘quite acceptable’; Destiny, ‘tightest on the night’; Fixed Vision, ‘capable enough’; and Strange Brew, ‘a little unrehearsed’.

Though tacked on the ‘Awesome From Horsham‘ Playlist Piers was actually from Billingshurst way.
