Photographed By Lightning - Live at Townhill Tech - 1987

‘Live at Townhill Tech (Part 1)’ by Photographed By Lightning

On 23rd June 1987 Photographed By Lightning played their last ever live gig with Chris and Andrew as members, at the ‘Townhill Technical College’ in Swansea. The event comprised of two halves, with PBL, for the first half of the set, providing the soundtrack to a visual display of slides and dance, produced and co-ordinated by the media artist Peter Mason. The whole of this event was recorded on a Revox B77, direct off the mixing desk, as well as being videoed. Not only was the sound quality good, but the first half of this set was probably the best example of PBL live and certainly a long term favourite of both Chris & Andrew. For personal archive purposes Andrew digitally mastered the ‘Live at Townhill Tech (Part 1)’ recordings during August 2005. The results of which can be stream listened and watched, in its entirety, by clicking on the links below:

Chris and Andrew first met in 1982 as members of the Swansea based, multimedia group, ‘Photographed By Lightning’. During the period of their involvement in Photographed By Lightning (1982 – 1987) the group recorded extensively, however this 7inch single was the only official release. This record was released in 1986, in an undisclosed limited edition. A very rare find indeed.

An insert, with the following text, accompanied this single.

"An asphalt idol beckons with smoke fingers across a skeletal motorway draped in ancestral memories, hordes of people like lemmings drop what they're doing in response to an atavistic pulse, circadian rhythms, dressing in exotic plumage, they murder the old people and leave their corpses along the roadside, wrapped in newspaper.
The full moon rises on the motorway where ancient dramas are now re-enacted to the voodoo pulse . Spluttering guitars, static bursts, manic drums;- The motorway becomes a central nervous system which dances. Blood and roses. A photograph taken by lightning flash."

Errol Undercliffe.

‘Neither Wings Nor Stones’ by Photographed By Lightning

During 1984-85, as members of Photographed By Lightning, Chris & Andrew were involved in the recording of PBL’s album ‘Neither Wings Nor Stones’. For various reasons, mainly lack of cash, ‘Neither Wing Nor Stones’ was never released. However, this particular recording was always a favourite of that era for both Chris & Andrew. The sound quality of this recording was quite reasonable for a 4-track tape Porta-studio, though cannot be compared to a professional recording. For personal archive purposes Andrew digitally mastered ‘Neither Wings Nor Stones’ during August 2005. The results of which can be stream listened, in their entirety, by clicking link below:
