long overdue Drone session, Crediton

Last night. Another highly enjoyable session at the Rainbow.

John's sitar, and a Goddess(?) image found on the wall

Henry - percussion
Rupert - percussion
John - sitar, bouzouki, acoustic guitar, electric 6 and 12-string guitars, electric fretless bass guitar, voice
Vaughan - acoustic guitar, electric 6-string guitar, electric fretless bass guitar, voice
me - saz, balalaika, percussion
Keith - electric 12-string guitar, electric fretless bass guitar
Celeste - voice and percussion

This was the first time Celeste had sung with us. John brought his sitar for the first time in quite a while. I can't remember how long it's been since Keith played fretless - wonderful - Vaughan and John gave it a try, too. Rupert was trying out a curious percussion instrument which I think was a Cuíca - Airto Moreira played one of these with Miles Davis at the Isle of Wight Festival. Vaughan described it as "a monkey in a tin". The last piece was another one where we agreed an exact time - 10:35 - on the prominent clock in the room to end the piece. This caused it to come crashing to a sudden, rather clumsy end. Very entertaining to do (the recording ends in laughter of course), but I've editted it out due to general lack of musical worth...
