Jack Bond recollects meeting Procol Harum's Matthew Fisher for the first time
"... He rang me one day, he said I've got this monster Hammond organ with its two Wurlitzer speakers, you know big tweeters on the top, do you mind if I store it at your place, have you got room? So it arrived and it was the size of a church organ, this monster. And he set it up and then he played.
Now this house was built in1820 and it had walls about three feet thick.
Nonetheless the entire thing shook as did every other house joined to it. I had people coming round looking up at the windows wondering if the entire row of houses was going to collapse just by the sheer force of its vibrations. It was wonderful to hear it like that, and he did quite a lot of composition in the house.
I'll never forget, 'cause the sun was shining on the canal, the refraction of the ripples hit the ceilings in the house. So there he was, sitting at this organ making this magnificent racket, and the ceiling above him was awash with ripples, sunlit ripples. Quite extraordinary really, wish I had a photograph of it."
