Last week’s event featured a dream line-up for us – epic45 and July Skies played the first live Colour show nearly four years ago and we’ve wanted to put on Avrocar for a long time, since hearing the retro-future soundscapes of the incredible Against The Dying Of The Light. All three bands are frequent collaborators, which gave a unique feel to the evening and the evocative, immersive sonic landscapes that enveloped The Victoria.
epic45’s back catalogue was released on iTunes on Monday, offering a chance to hear several albums and EPs that have been out of print for years.
Thanks once again to Richard Short for capturing the performances so perfectly.
epic45 member E.L. Heath also captured some great shots, which you can find on our Flickr page.
