That would be one of the finest things we should experience in years.

No idea what year this (80's?) was but I went to this show in Sheffield (at the Octogon (?)- where they play or used to play snooker) and saw Ashra play a dazzling set. The crowd was pretty special too, I remember the rhythmic clapping at the start of the show, which I *think* was running a little bit late, seemed like the 2 halves of the audience were improvising some elaborate clapping patterns and interplay - weird! MG's guitar playing was so fluid. Anyone else on here attend that year or any other? Ian Boddy was also on the same year as the headliners Ashra.

That was the UK Electronica, I think it was 86, but I stand to be corrected -from memory Steve Jolliffe supported Ashra in the big room, and over the day there were sets from Ian Boddy, Mark Shreeve, Paul Nagle, a chap called Michael Brook (not the Eno collaborator, but I bought a nice tape of his, Fragile Shoreline) and Stevo. I've always wondered if Stevo was the same guy involved with Soft Cell.

Not a bad line up!

stevo was the guy who was behind a small indie record label called "some bizzare" which i believe was originally set up in lincoln. some of the bands he had signed to his label are now household names such as depeche mode ,soft cell , blancmange and b-movie to mention a few,the some bizarre album ftd all these artists and is available on cd if you can find one [very rare] :roll:

I remember all those names now - Ash Prema played some very Tangy sounding stuff and Mark Jenkins, I think, posed on stage with a laser reflecting off his full front silvered shades. I think I came away with an album of tracks from all or most of the artists that played there. I was impressed with Wavestar, Ian Boddy and Mike Brook (I couldn't remember his name but I remembered the word "shoreline" coming into the title somewhere) - a good show all round when you look back on it. I might be getting this mixed up with another gig but didn't some ex-Hawkwind members play under a name like Urban Guerilla? Perhaps that was another year. Or another place.

I can never make up my mind if these are brilliant, inspired mould shattering improvisations by visionary musical geniuses or just a bunch of stoned hippies on an endless jam with the tape rolling. Don't suppose it really matters if you enjoy it at the end of the day!

No doubt with the later stuff though - New Age of Earth, Dream & Desire, Blackouts, Correlations, Early Water, E2-E4 etc all cast iron EM classics made extra special by Manuel's sublime guitar.

as far as BM is concerned all the A R T albums are pure rock classics created by genius musicians at the true cutting edge of possibility...stoned maybe, an endless jam, perhaps....but music that is both beautiful and strangely strange


imho of course :oops:

The last weeks I play a lot of Ashra. Have discovered them (him) again. I have to admit a lot of the music of Ashra is better than a certain period of TD. Of course it is different. But somethings I like more then the later cd's of our heroes.
Now is playing the Private tapes. Lotus is freaking out there. Love it. :D
