Jump Ship Rat was a gallery space on Parr St, now moved to new premises
on Greenland St. It was originally a garage, and quite a big one,
so it had warehouse type proportions and a metal roof. John Edwards
(Caroline's partner) wanted to play a gig while he was up here,
so i organised this, along with Rob Dainton on drums and Marion
Leibl (voice), in the course of which me and Caroline did a duo
played for about 13 minutes, and about 8 minutes in we suddenly
stopped exchanging pleasantries and caught fire, which is the
bit on the CD. We were bouncing stuff off this big metal roof
- great stuff. If you listen closely to that bit you can hear
Clement (Caroline's son) making his contribution to the proceedings.
the second half, Caroline took Clem for a walk, and she could
hear me, John and Rob playing from the other side of the multi-storey
car park, which she said was a fascinating experience: another
psycho-acoustic moment that existed just the once, and then was
lost, outside of the memory of the person involved.
