17 years ago, Miriam and I completed a four-month long duo tour in Europe as BF/BS. We played in 15 different countries, often collaborating with local musicians along the way.
We arrived in Warsaw, Poland very early in the morning after a grueling all-night rural bus ride from Riga, Lativa. Our local hosts, Tomek and Magda (One Inch Of Shadow) set us up in an apartment - Magda's Great Aunt's place in Legionowo, a Warsaw suburb - and we slept the rest of the day.
Later that evening, we joined back up with our hosts, and the four of us performed nearly 2 hours of electronic free improv - a sort of organic cold wave. Heavy, super out. One Inch Of Shadow played insane 60s and 70s Soviet synths that nobody wanted in the 90s, which they thrifted for nothing.
These recordings were originally released in 2004 by the Polish label Cat-Sun in a CDr edition of 60, they disappeared immediately, mostly in Poland. Rarely-heard indeed.
