A mix of leftover records from Haverfordwest. There’s a single with a ballet lesson I found in the Greenacres animal welfare shop and four 12inch’s brought into the unit by Sam Knight. They are Max Boyce – The World of Max Boyce; Alan Tew Orchestra – The Magnificent Westerns; Flash in the Pan – Waiting for a Train; 3 Brass Monkeys – Hear No Evil/See no Sound
Combining opening sequences to The Sound of Music and Batman Begins to celebrate two iconic figures connected to Haverfordwest.
Playing records and packing for an evening of Artist film and performance in Manorbier, 18/11/16. About 20 min from the end of a mix. Performance video footage by Deborah Darling.
There were a few technical issues during the performance which I found after – the webcam which was meant to stream live failed and just recorded the first and final frames, thankfully it did record all the audio! The Gopro recording also seems to have a few problems, though possibly arising during the transfer from the msd card.
These are the 11 glitched frames with an audio extract from the performance.
When I started looking at music connections to Haverfordwest and Pembrokeshire I found mention of a punk band called ‘Picture Frame Seduction’. Although I had never heard them, I remembered the band name from years ago as Steve Parkin, a good friend of my oldest brother, was in the band. Wikipedia tells me he was the bassist from 1984-87.
‘Picture Frame Seduction’ still continue to play and record with original member Keith Haynes and in 2012 their 1985 album ‘Hand of the Rider’ was reissued on vinyl. I found a copy through Discogs.
So the collection and the database continue to grow.
About half the records in the database say where the records came from, and some have specific information as to why I was there. ‘Haverfordwest dentist run’ refers to a visit to the emergency dentist to have an excruciating tooth pulled. I remember wandering around the town with a numb jaw, trying not to dribble. ‘Haverfordwest, Mothers Day Outing 09’ speaks for itself, my mum loved a day out in Haverfordwest.
