What Came Next

This is it. Completely it. Part of what I've been trying to do with this blog is mine for interesting recordings. This one is it. The group is called what katy did next. This was supposedly recorded in 1985 overnight after breaking into a rehearsal space. The compilation is called somebody pull the chain. It clocks in around 90 minutes. Bits of things pasted together from cassettes.

this compilation is a collection of recordings from 1985, what katy did next used to break into a rehearsal studio in hull (uk) 100 yards from the humber, play all night long and then leave at 8am in the morning. all the tunes and words are improvised and live. the recording equipment consisted of two microphones and a cassette tape recorder. the compilation was created using copies of the original tapes and two cassette decks. only 3 members of what katy did next are still alive today, 4 are dead, one of the living is lost in scotland.

truth or fiction? I've got no clue, but the music is pretty kick ass and reminds me of some stuff our friends in Halaka have done over the years.
