GAZPACHO’S LOCKDOWN LIVE RECORDING ‘FIREWORKING AT ST.CROIX’ NEWLY REMIXED & ISSUED VIA KSCOPE. “Plenty to marvel at in the ensemble and individual playing of these musicians” – Louder Sound
Due to reasons which most fans will be aware of by now, Gazpacho’s “Fireworker” 2020 album tour was cancelled. Stuck with the predicament of having a well-honed show rehearsed & the prospect of a long period off the road, the band had a decision to make. The idea of a live stream which would reach fans far & wide quickly presented itself & the band had a perfect setting in their very own rehearsal space in beautiful Fredrikstad. The resulting film is a very moody trip into the world of ‘The Fireworker’, captured on the 25th October 2020. No fixes, no polishes, no light show & no nothing. Not even catering. Just the pure rendition of the music along with a surprise or two for those of you who have been with the band for a while.
In Thomas Andersen’s own words “Gazpacho has always been an ‘anti band’, in the sense that we strive to do things differently. For this reason, we wanted an ‘honest’ live stream where we decided not to play the gig on an empty stage with a light show. Instead, we decided to perform it exactly how we play when we record or rehearse in the actual room we use.”
The band are now back on the road, but these recordings offer a fine historical nugget from the bands already sterling catalogue.
A LTD 4-disc super deluxe edition with the whole show on double CD, Blu-Ray & DVD as well as 48-page coffee table book including extensive liner notes about the ‘Fireworker’ concept & the history of Gazpacho, including never-before seen photos & alternative album artwork is available to UK Indies.
