At the tale end of November I went to Gabba Hey to check out some kosmik sounds. Flecton Bigsky was cementing his return to the stage, The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol were celebrating of their newly released (and now almost entirely sold out) album Pathfinder, and Montreal's Pachyderm showed up with some krautrockin' tuneage as well.
Flecton kicked things off.
Pachyderm was formed by Tom Jarvis and Nico Braesch after the two met in Montreal (Jarvis hails from Liverpool, Braesch is French). Like TBWNIAS, they've served as sound carriers for Damo Suzuki, and like those German kosmik sounds.
They brought in a bassman for the last bit.
Rhythm section action!
Then it was on to TBWNIAS for some more shadowy action.
Jan Lis wasn't around for this set, but Flecton was there to "hang out."
Nate handles the low end.
This is the best pivture you'll get of Jason, since he was tucked away in a corner away from the light.
A grand time was had by all.
