Guitar Club For Men – Workshop Demos

February 11th, 2010 No comments

Jef writes in: This cassette is actually the demo for a short lived band called Guitar Club For Men (photo).  This music was recorded at the Box Factory with Dave’s 4 track (I think).  A lot of the compositions are by Dave and me, and I remember writing them the night before we recorded them.  I would go to my room and Dave would stay in the living room and the idea was to come with ideas quickly, so we gave ourselves 15 or 20 minutes to write a part of a tune, then we put them together and then we did it again.  I can’t remember the name of Nick’s tune, so for now it’s called “Nick’s Tune”. I don’t know where the tape cover come from.  I think it’s Alexander Calder, but am not sure, and had less idea at the time.

H – Winter ’95 – ’96 Vol. I

February 11th, 2010 No comments

From Dave’s Collection of H cassette tapes.  A little of everything.

Jef adds: We used the material from this tape as a demo.  A1-4 was side one of the demo and A5-8, B1-2 was side two.  We used that tape with one of two photos, either the “H Promo Photo” or the “H Portrait” depending on the presentation needs, and would have the tape rewound to the appropriate side.  These were recorded at the Box Factory rehearsal space in Dorcestor and have a lot of overdubbing.

Digital H – Vibes Sessions with Mike Connors

February 10th, 2010 No comments

Dave made the ‘Digital H’ tape for me and included TOC and Let’s Clap (see the line drawn on the case – I think those tracks were not from the vibes session).

Jef adds:  This was recorded in Dorcestor with Dave’s reel 4 track.  It was a one off session and we never played in this configuration again.  As usual the songs were written the night before.  The last two tracks are just Dave and Glenn, and I’m guessing it’s Dave on trumpet and Glenn on alto sax, and possibly both on flutes.   Missing from this tape is RX54 by GZ.
