Back on Saturday 16 July this year, our prog-rock band Crooked End played a forty-minute set to close the Mitcheldean Festival. We played three songs — being proggers, all our songs were long, so we couldn’t fit any more in. The one we really cared about was our own composition, Dancing Through the Storm, and we finally have a (poor-quality) video of that song. Here it is!
From left to right, we are:
- Fiona Taylor (piano, keyboards, flute, backing vocals)
- Mike Taylor (guitar, lead vocals)
- Mario Ermoyenous (bass)
- Daniel Taylor (drums, backing vocals)
I’m sorry the recording isn’t better (in either sound or video), but it does at least give some idea of what we did. (The other two songs were covers of Steven Wilson’s Luminol and Flying Colors’ Blue Ocean.)
For those who care, the sections of Dancing Through the Storm are:
00:13 — Part 1: Sometimes Sunshine
03:00 — Part 2: The Storm
04:49 — Part 3: Seven Days
06:46 — Part 4: See the Sun
09:00 — Part 5: Discovery/Perpetual Motion
11:24 — Part 6: Living on the Edge
Some photos of the performance (from here):
We hope that some time in the new year, we’ll make the time (and find the money!) to do a proper recording.
