Friday 18 August 2006: Don Milione finds a synth patch for In
Held. Don is the most physically
exuberant player we've ever had in the Palers' Band, as watchable as Chris Copping on the Hammond.
Most of us can look a tad solemn, even moribund, as we play. Not so Dr Milione!
Ian tests the harpsi sounds from the Korg N5. In real life he
a fine collection of church organs and echt harpsichords
The beaming Mr Jeff Levine, the yawning Mr Peter Clare. Early morning rehearsal suits some better than others ...
Gary Shepard, Don Milione, back of Jeremy Gilien.
pack of little cards
for keeping track of who plays what, and for working out running-orders
Larry and Don compare notes; Hans listens from the Hammond bench (he didn't play the organ)
Finn Poulsen, with his harmonica. The Palers' Band was making a lot of
noise and Finn came from a neighbouring
house and said he would call the police immediately if we didn't let him join in. This was Juicy John Pink (with
Marvin and Bjørn the rhythm section). In the event Finn was unable to join us for the either party: a shame!
Marvin, Larry, Don
Thomas tirelessly fixed mics, found power-supplies and so on, while the musicians figured out their side of things
Aerial view from the Hammond end of the band, shewing where the synth was
positioned (it was used for colour on
No More Fear of Flying, which we didn't scrap until the last rehearsal, for wind noises on Bridge of Sighs, for
sitar effects in Glimpses of Nirvana, and it had a starring rôle in The Worm and the Tree)
