this band, featuring jules pascoe, harry angus, harry

shaw-reynolds and myself started up as a result of

the four of us jamming out the front of vibe café on

acland steet, st kilda

the music is largely improvised but later on we

started to write some beautiful repertoire as well

 

this is from 'go to the beach', the first album we

recorded, and is more of a concept than a song

 

the second album started to introduce strings

this track is the first string arrangement i ever did

and is a transcription of an old conglomerate song

called 'a hot day'

 

this is an improvisation over which i arranged a

string quartet

i love the way the highly constructed strings can

make a chaotic jam sound organised

 

this is a version of a recurring theme that we always

used to play at gigs and has made its way onto the

album several times
