A queue forms outside a record store earlier today
For those of you who tend towards physicality as opposed to aethereality as your chosen medium of music buying, and who also have a penchant for the archeology of ground-breaking 1970s experimental avant-metal / free improv / shredding mash-ups – or who wish to develop a penchant for the same – Guerssen Records are today releasing ‘Red Square: Rare & lost 70s Recordings‘ upon an expectant world in both 12″ vinyl and CD formats.

The Lindisfarne gig did indeed feature HC as headliners, and even after all these years (and many gigs later) it still ranks as one of my personal favourite outings! Jon
