Womb, Manchester 2008.
At The Briton’s Protection pub.
Improvisation with electric guitar, objects, drum skins, contact microphones, plastic bag and tape recorder.
Review by Kath Aubergine, Up The Down Escalator blog.
Salford-based G Fisher, it's not so much music in the conventional sense as an auditory art installation.
This is G Fisher. And yes, you would be correct in thinking that is (a) a kitchen brush - it's being scraped around on a metal plate into a microphone - and (b) a fork lodged between guitar strings. Other sonic accessories in the Fisher repertoire include a paint scraper and a pewter tankard. The fork makes an amazing sound and altogether Fisher's work is more of a single coherent piece than a collection of strung together sketches. My long-suffering companion describes it as sounding like two squid having a fight over a rusty bicycle, but when I mention this to the promoter he doesn't seem to consider this a bad thing.
The recording Live at Womb was released as a free download on the Found In A Skip label at The Internet Archive.
