Urbmon 116 (2016)

Side One

Until Hell Freezes Over (8:20): Phil with rhythm section of Tim + Paddi:

Many did not think they would survive the Cuban missile crisis– this piece conveys the anxiety, the waiting, the paranoia, the Russian choir performs Mussorsgky’s ‘At Daddy’s Gate’ and reminds us of Russia’s great culture while an anvil sounds to remind us of darker moments.

Fragile Piece (4:30): Phil with Tim and Paddi– a variant of ‘This Fragile Peace’ from the pArAdOx OnE album– I just took a different road, that’s all.

Hope (2:30): A one take expression of …? (Phil alone)

The Bodyswerve (6:40): Designed for hip exercise (that’s hip not hip!) (Phil with Tim and Paddi)

Calling Earth But/ Earth Does Not Respond (long!): You’ve seen ‘The Martian’- right? Who doesn’t fantasise about being lost in space? But why is the alien calling Earth while its planet implodes?- totally improvised first take on an old Juno synthesiser.

Look out for the next Urbmon 116 releases on asteroids and escalators into space (an Arthur C Clarke idea)

Music will soon be available on www.paradoxone.co.uk and Bandcamp – free but donations are welcome– see also my Solo artists group on Progressive Ears website.

Do get in touch.
