vocals and alto sax: peter pick.

 

Recorded at All Saints, Lewes, 1987-1990 by Peter Pick for aural witness.   moral rights asserted by the authors and makers.

 

As you can see by the question-marks that adorn the careful table above, it is not always certain exactly who did what when. This is due to the protean nature of the great beast Brahma Chop, and especially because everyone (except Richard) played percussion. Sco may appear on  swan (for the money) or  battery or  even elsewhere, or it might not be him at all.

  

All material was improvised, except ‘all for you’, which is a Lowerson/Pick composition, ‘jeepster’, which is by Marc Bolan, and ‘who do you love?’ in which the words at least are derived from a blues made famous by Quicksilver Messenger Service, among others.  All other lyrics   by   Peter Pick.
