VdGG will be performing a couple of long-form pieces at the core of their sets in their upcoming June dates.
“Flight”, originally a PH solo/K group piece, has already been aired in North America and Japan last year. It’s partly as a result of the reworking of this in the trio format that we’ve been tempted to go for something even more ambitious… or dangerous.
Our intention is to play “A Plague of LIghthouse-Keepers”, from our 1972 album “Pawn Hearts” each night.
We will *not* be attempting to recreate the album version but hope to come up with a new, in-the-present approach to this important piece from our past, which has only been played live a handful of times before now.
It’s a scary prospect, but very exciting!
