Best song recorded in a cave I found this year
« on: August 03, 2019, 11:55:00 pm »
OK, it's a bit of a slight oldie. The cave recorded stuff starts around 2min 10sec, nice silhouette a bit later.  The name of the band is ironically amusing.  So, I'll start with the following, and, as ever, other contributions most welcome.

And now for something completely different.

This performance was entirely recorded underground.

Although the site a few miles from my home is generally called Chislehurst Caves, the recording is correct in calling it a mine, it is a complex of old chalk mines.

When listening to it, do not be distracted by the short periods of silence, it is worth listening to in full...



...or possibly not.

Seth Lakeman's "More Than Money," a song about copper miners, was recorded down the George and Charlotte mine of Morwellham (once the greatest copper port of the British Empire)

This is an interview about it and excerpt: 
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

I am the mine manager at the George & Charlotte and was there when this was recorded.  My abiding memory was having to abandon proceedings and indeed this part of the mine for several minutes due to the sound engineer letting go the world's smelliest fart!

Nice bass line but they really need to do something with it. First silence or two is OK but it really needs to go somewhere.  Doctor Avalanche may have a view https://sisterswiki.org/Doktor_Avalanche or a sequencer.

Oh no! Did that mark the demise of yet another SpinalTap drummer?   :(
