Not sure about their metallurgy but bops along.
May contain melody.
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.
A Christine number recorded after the demise of the band by Fred and Richard plus Jim from the Jackalsons and accidentally yours truly after failure of a hired four track recorder resulted in time pressure to get it done with the borrowed replacement.
I cut Carnival Of Souls about to go with it.
From about 1992 here’s what Jim got up to after the Gits (UK).
With Nick Odel from many a Crawley band including Orange.
Sticking with the locals…
In keeping with the Gits minimal effort philosophy the first person asked to sing for band was Ben the bass player’s next door neighbour who sensibly avoided the poison chalice. Here he is as The Vessel with his band David Devant & His Spirit Wife.
Bit of a find. One of the locals with his late 1990s band Hillman Minx in a video starring Angus Deayton for a song produced by the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart.
Since this post was buried here, never to be read again, I’ve come across the fact that, ‘In ’98, Mark Radcliffe on Radio 1 championed them and made their first single ‘I’ve Had Enough’ record of the week for three weeks in a row.’
Another pre-Gits (UK) band featuring Jim on drums and Chris on guitar. Recorded straight to quarter inch reel in 1986 at the Quaker Meeting House in Horsham.
An instrumental from 1994 and another in the rather loosely defined ‘Awesome From Horsham’ series; he’s actually from Southwater a good three miles away.
Peter Nagle turned up in many a Horsham band as well as guesting on a number of Voice Of The Rain tracks, most notably For The Better and St. Machar Drive on Other People’s Angels.
