HAMBONE

Posted: June 4th, 2005, by Chris Summerlin

I have had a really nasty hangover all day as a result of putting on ONEIDA last night in Nottingham. Our proposed support band pulled out (the mighty DIE MUNCH MACHINE – we forgive you) so we ended up hastily assembling an Arkestra for the night consisting of Dave Stockwell, Dave Moult, Gareth Hardwick, Lucky Chua and myself. 4 guitars and a cello. The relief of finishing was so great and Oneida so trance like and mighty I set about celebrating.
What the fuck has this got to do with the price of bread you might think?
Well, I found a hangover cure! HAMBONE by ARCHIE SHEPP on his Impulse album FIRE MUSIC.
It goes like this.
