This is the first thing we recorded together as Oil On Canvas in July 2003. It was done live to 2-track with no edits, minimal gear and no preparation. We still adhere to the improvisational approach but have taken more care with the recording…

Recorded in 2008. Fuzz guitar through an old DDL into a pitch transposer, recorded in one pass with no edits or overdubs. Just a minute noodle doodle, really, but it's gonna go somewhere. Honest!

Spooky, atmospheric stuff. Reminds me of GTR OBLQ from Vernon Reid, Elliot Sharp and David Torn.

Have to admit I didn’t think I’d listen to the whole track, but it kept surprising me. Fascinating stuff. Brilliant!

Agree it has some Osric Tentacles vibe with a mash of Hawkwind/Gentle Giant curve!
