about

After completing my album, Great & Terrible Potions, I began thinking about how I could possibly perform it live.

Upon returning from the hills, still screaming, I fell in with a three-piece band instead. Throwing the original song arrangements out the window, we rehearsed over a period of months, generally late at nights so as to avoid all natural light. Practising the subtle arts of refining and distilling, we pieced together new versions of old and not-so-old songs.

Unfortunately we found ourselves forgetting some of the new arrangements, so we decided to spend a day recording in the studio. This audio release, Dissected, is what happened that day.

Luckily the cameras just happened to be rolling. The resulting film, which is also called Dissected, captures our performances and documents the shenanigans and tomfoolery in which we engaged.

Several takes of each song were recorded and filmed throughout the day. The eagle-eyed amongst you might think you spot the odd "continuity error" during the film. These would, of course, be nothing of the sort whatsoever. In fact, they would be much more correctly interpreted as exciting opportunities for artistic editing decisions by the director.

*** Please note. This Bandcamp release is AUDIO-ONLY. The video is temporarily unavailable.

Augmented by a stunning cover designed by legendary artist Roger Dean (Yes, Asia), Potions is dense, complicated and unashamedly pretentious – everything a good prog rock album should be!
