Vibration White Finger - Live at the Bay

By Gavin Davies

Jam-heavy first gig of the second version of Vibration White Finger, when Matt Rimmer joined on vocals.

When VWF reformed with Matt on vocals, we scrabbled to write material - and fast!

A few of the ideas in these tracks can be traced back to Monkey Snowball Fighter material, and other ideas sprouted from VWF 1.0 songs (especially Song 1 - only that and the A-team jam carried over, I think). Steff contributed a whole track and the rest was a mix of jams and riffs and melodies that everybody contributed to.

Lineup:

  • Chris Betteley - drums
  • Me - bass
  • Matt Rimmer - vox
  • Sean Cox - guitar
  • Jon Perry - trumpet (Jon also played in the Lon Chaney 5 and a number of wedding bands with me!)
  • Ben Joiner - sax (Ben went on to front Bleeding Lip, which Jon and I also played in)
  • Stef Kilby - percussion and acoustic guitar

I was having a great time playing in this band, every gig was a rush. It was sloppy and jammy but live, people smiled and danced, and what more can you ask? We were young, in our own little Aberystwyth bubble, and we loved it.
