Beyond the Pale


The great Barrie Wilson clutching a claw-hammer and a club-hammer during overdubbing sessions for Beyond The Pale at AIR London. These photographs, seen here for the first time, were taken and kindly sent in to 'Beyond the Pale' by Mick Grabham.

Although Exotic Birds and Fruit does represent something of a return to the pure group sound after the elaborate embellishments of Grand Hotel, several songs in particular Beyond the Pale feature characteristic and fascinating soundscapes, built up with intricate instrumental overlays.

Mick tells us that you can definitely hear BJ playing these unusual instruments on the track in question: an excellent reason to turn up the volume tonight and take one more trip 'beyond all sight' in search of that Holy Grail ...

Thanks, Mick
