Mneme + Simon Fell

Written by

Mneme + Simon Fell (2002) Recorded at Bluecoat Arts Centre


This was recorded I think during the 2002 festival. Mneme was / is an acoustic string group that has had a number of different people playing either in it or with it. The original line up was Phil Hargreaves, Neil Murphy and Adam Webster, however cellist Simon Bradley from Leeds and Liverpool violinist Simon Jones have all played with some sort of regularity. Mneme have also been joined by a number of other string players, Simon Fell on this recording, Christoph Irmer, Andrea Martin and Jon Edwards.


Track length 7.33

Phil Hargreaves (cello), Neil Murphy (viola), Adam Webster (cello) Simon Fell (dbl bass)

Frakture Big Band with Ben Patterson

Written by

FBB with Ben Patterson (2002) Recorded at Bluecoat Arts Centre


This was a performance of the Frakture Big Band with Ben Patterson, from Fluxus, who happened to be in Liverpool. The concert was split into two halves – one performing Ben Patterson’s graphic scores and the other half, dare I say it, free improvisation, of which this is one. There may be a couple of musicians, who I have accidentally missed out from the FBB line up too – such a transient group. 

Look at http://www.patsfallgraphics.com/pages/patterson.html

Track length 13.05


Phil Hargreaves (sax / flute), Phil Lucking (trumpet), Neil Murphy (viola), Steve Hood (guitar), Adam Webster (cello), Rob Dainton (drums), Ricardo Fernandez (piano), John Wittington (guitar), Mole (sax), Ben Patterson (dbl bass), Martin Robinson (sax)

Swung Dash

Swung Dash Recorded at Bluecoat Arts Centre 28 September 2001

This was recorded at possibly Swung Dash’s first gig, which was part of the Listening Room series of events. I think possibly even as a fill in for something else that didn’t happen. It is a predominantly Liverpool based quartet that nobody knows whether they exist as a quartet anymore. When a couple of the musicians were asked they said ‘I don’t know’.

Track length 8.08

Phil Morton (accidents and treatments), Phil Lucking (trumpet), Adam Webster (bass guitar), Budgie (drums)

Frakture Big Band - 2006

Written by

FBB recorded at The Oratory, St James Cemetery, Liverpool

The Frakture Big Band is a large-scale improvising group from Liverpool. This was recorded as part of a project for 80 Days Around the City where the Frakture Big Band performed and recorded in the Picton Reading Room at Central Library, the Williamson Tunnels and St James’ Oratory, where this was recorded. And it was very very cold. The Picton Rooms and the Williamson Tunnels were performed in front of audiences however this was purely a recording session. Look at http://www.frakture.org/ensembles/fbb.htm

Phil Lucking (trumpet), Neil Murphy (viola), Adam Webster (cello), John Wittington (guitar), Mole (sax), Simon Jones (violin), Garfield Southall (guitar), Phil Morton (accidents and treatments), Tim Downey (guitar), Ray Dickaty (sax)

Corringham & Thomas Recorded 04 October 2002 at Bluecoat Arts Centre as part of the Frakture Festival
This was a duo that played in our 2002 festival. Avery skittish duo would be a good way to describe them. It seemed no sound they made lasted longer than, or even as long, as a second. Music on the move you might say. Look at http://hometown.aol.co.uk/vivdc/  
Track length 4.56
Viv Corringham (Voice), Pat Thomas (keyboard, samples)

Written by



The Bohman Brothers are a London based duo that used to run the Bonnington Centre in Vauxhall. They are non-instrument based players whose performances are often wonderfully funny. Looking at http://www.xs4all.nl/~lukas/pagina/bohmans.htm will give you more extensive and better information than I could. Adam

Track Length 5.10

Adam Bohman (toys and other things), Jonathon Bohman (assorted stuff)

Bergmark & Morton

Written by

Bergmark & Morton
Johannes Bergmark is a Swedish musician based in Poland whilst Phil Morton is based in Toxteth. J. Bergmark sometimes lies in a coffin and growls. Here though, he has made a table with all kinds of objects on it, which are amplified. Phil Morton likes to find objects and then find sounds from these found objects. Go and look at www.bergmark.org/

Track length 27.04
