Go Kart Mozart - Marc Riley Session 30/4/2013

After a postponement as long as your average pregnancy, the self-professed last man standing finally made his session debut on 6 Music 24 hours ago.

The inbetween song banter confirms Lawrence's ongoing disdain of the internet, but reveals tentative grasps with 21st century technology with the recent acquisition of a mobile phone.

Featuring a guitarless line up of  Ralph Phillips (drums), Rusty Stone (bass) and Terry Miles (aka Milestone Express) on keyboards and vocoder. The vocoder embellishments give the backing vocals an almost orchestral texture and more than compensate the void left by the absence of a conventional guitar.

Five songs in total, including Donna & The Dopefiends, pre-recorded for broadcast on Gideon Coe's show, which features some tasty new arrangements.

Electric Rock 'n Roll
West Brom Blues
The Sun
Donna & The Dopefiends

GKM recently made their first live appearance in eons at The Poetry Club in Glasgow back in February. An audience recording of  the gig has surfaced on the Felt Forum.

Also why not check out Terry Miles' vocoder tuition clip on Youtube.
