In Cahoots – Bracknell, South Hill Park – 13 December 1988
This was the last in a series of UK gigs In Cahoots performed at the tail end of 1988, the first since the Split Seconds sessions the previous summer, and the last until the European tour nearly a year later. It’s also the only one we have a recording of, and all the luckier for it as it has a piece that appears nowhere else, an untitled contribution by Steve Franklin. So, despite the rather average sound quality, and since there aren’t that many recordings of gigs by this lineup anyway, we think it deserves to be more widely heard. And if anyone taped other dates on this tour, you are welcome to let us know!
The first three tracks are from the first set and the last three, from the second.
Phil Miller – guitar, guitar synth
Elton Dean – saxello, alto sax
Steve Franklin – keyboards
Fred Baker – bass
Pip Pyle – drums
