MARK JENKINS & The Land of Yrx 1983 “Annus Mirabilis”
“Annus Mirabilis 1983” MARK JENKINS guesting with The Land of Yrx, Shrewsbury open air 1983. Mark Jenkins (Sequential Prophet 600 & Pro One), David Gate (keyboards, drum machine and MC), Rob Andrews (Bass), guests Ray Gordon (flute), Steve Collins (guitar), drunk audience (shouting). Video by Nick Elborough.
For this improvisation I think we’d been listening to Gong, Can, early Ash Ra Tempel, Guru Guru, Cluster and very early Kraftwerk…
The synthesizer sounds used were also used in my set at the first UK Electronica Festival also in 1983, from which there’s no video. This piece is also otherwise unreleased, but I have similar music from around that period on my CD “Analog Archives” available worldwide through Amazon.co.uk and on the CDR “Live Archives” available through www.markjenkins.co
