It was ten years ago today…

It’s 10 years to the day since Chris, Brett and Nick had their first practice together, a jam session which yielded the source material for several Dead Sea Apes numbers.
To celebrate this anniversary, for TODAY ONLY you can hear a specially codged together selection of extracts from that session.
Here’s where it all began, at the (now demolished) Greenhouse Studios in Stockport, 4th of August 2009.

  1. I DID, ORIGINALLY, WRITE SOMETHING EXTREMELY PROFOUND R.E THE D S A AND THE SESSIONS YOU HEAR HEREIN.. SADLY THE WRITINGS WOULDNT POST AND THE THOUGHTS OF IMAGE THEFT – IMAGES SHOT BY MYSELF – SORTTA DESCENDED INTO PEEVISHNESS MUSINGS…
    ANYHOW; THIS HAS BEEN RELEASED THIS MORNING, I HAVE A NEW RAINBOW GRAVE E.P TO LISTEN TO… AND I HAVE JUST DEAD HEADED SOME POPPIES THEY’VE VANDALISED… SORRY SHITTY WORLD, ISN’T IT.
    THE MUSIC OF DEAD SEA APES ACCOMPANIES TEE-PEE LIVING PERFECTLY.. AND A GOOD 18 MILE WALK ALLOWS FOR QUIET CONTEMPLATION AS THE RAIN BEATS DOWN ON YOUR DRY AS BONE HEAD…
    “NO WORRIES, MATE… I’VE ALREADY BOUGHT MY OWN COPIES OF THE D S A MUZAK…”
    GO TO NORMAN RECORDS IF YOU WANNA PURCHASE SOME D S A GEAR OR FRONT UP TO TODMORDEN TO THE SHOP WITH NO SIGN – THAT ALT LEFT-FIELD TYPE OF ESTABLISHMENT – WHICH FEATURES NICK KENT TOMES, WOVEN SKULL MUSINGS, STOCKHAUSEN… THEN FRONT UP TO THE WETHERSPOONS PUB AND GET PISSED – AS YOU LOOK DOWN ON THE OIKS AS YOU SIP UP THE BAKING SUN.
    STOCKPORT… WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME? – NOTHING.. SAVE JOAN BAKEWELL, A MASSIVE AND MASSIVELY IMPRESSIVE VIADUCT A RED BRICKED ONE AT THAT… AND CYCLING – CYLCING TO STOCKPORT WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND ALIVE AND CYCLED A LOT.
    LOSING ONE’S TONAL VIRGINITY TO THE D S A… I MEAN THE FIRST GIG I SAW WHICH FEATURED THE D S A WAS… AT THE BAND ON THE WALL VENUE… AN AMIABLE PLACE AND AN AMIABLE EVENING WAS HAD BY ALL.
    THAT SHEFFILED BAR MAID WILL TELL YOU – I DO MY OWN IMAGE CREATION – IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THE OLD MAD TROUT SHOUTS DOWN THE HOUSE EXCLAIMING THOSE PHOTOS ARE THE PROPERTY OF OTHERS ETC ETC ETC… YEAH; I SAW D S A SUPPORT A M T… AND SHOT A FEW CRAPPY IMAGES WITH MY ZENIT. THAT MAD DIARY WRITTEN DURING THAT CAMPING ESCAPADE OVER TONNACLIFFE MOOR – IT FEATURES SOME OF THE IMAGES FROM IT – THE HEADLESS SOUND ENGINEEER ETC.
    P.S 12MINS 40 SECS IN IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING.. AND I AM HOPING, WITH REFERENCE TO THE FUTURE, THAT HEAVY ROCK/DUB CROSS OVER IS WHERE THE D S A WILL BE HEADING NEXT – AS I THINK IT’D BE COOL TO INDULGE WITH A HEADBANGING SESSION WITH THESE MUCKERS.
    REGARDS

    I was sorting through some CDs last night and coincidentally found the handwritten CDr of Soy DIos you sent me many years back. Thanks for all the excellent music and congrats on reaching your 10th…Bob (Aural Delights Radio Show)
