The Barmy Army

Practice Semley village hall March 2023

Here is the best unedited film capture during the last practice. New Jack is having a go at singing a song he wrote slagging off Guy Ritchie, 'cos he is apparently rich and a proper twat. Enjoy, Ben Angel on guitar, Gaffa on drums, Bob on bass and Maria sounding out on vocals. Dick, here in the background giving backing vocals a go, while Moya is checking out her recording gear.

The Cavern Exeter

From the band's recent gig in the Cavern in Exeter, December 2022. Noah and Justin Burton invited us to support a local mental health charity fund raiser. Great gig lads. AD Pawley came along and filmed most of the set. This is the best yet film footage and audio combined. These files medium sized mp4 versions having been compressed a tad so that they are easier to stream. Enjoy.

2015 Practice

Here is a very rough short clipped from a practice of 2015 vintage. Just to show that some of the band do take it serious.....and turn up to practice. Semley Village hall one Sunday in 2015. At this moment in time the audio track is a cut of Planet Vecon. It's a temporary experimental minimal effort using Open Shot free video editing software on Linux MX box with only 4Gb RAM.

Practice June 2021

These tracks were captured on an old MAC Book Pro and with far too many issues, the files were eventually transferred to ANDY the WINDOWS XP box. Audacity was invoked to Capture audio on the MAC and again under XP to edit the project files and export each track in wav format.

Sound Works Oxford - November 2014

The tracks below have been selected from those recorded at the Sound Works, community music studio in 2014 at the practice prior to the shittiest gig so far, at the Cellar. After some deliberation it was decided by Dick and Bongo and contrary to what we all thought, that there is some good stuff in the recording. What we have is surprisingly, far from useless. What we do have can form the basis of something better after a bit of studio work. The obvious first contender being some over dubbing. The big question is, can we record the missing instruments in Ratgoose Hall ? So Dick and I are up for it and have already recorded Gaffa reworking his kit on this version of Penis Head. Let's see if we can create another art form out of musical shabbles. The tracks below are posted here for your mutual appreciation and sheer delight knowing full well that an alternative Mix Down is int'mill init.

The tracks are posted here for your mutual appreciation and sheer delight knowing full well that an alternative Mix Down is being evaluated and the tracks posted here could change for the new mixes in a few days time.

The Bullingdon Arms Oxford - 1987

Here is the recording of the gig at the Bullingdon Arms. It was recorded by Michael Gurzon using test equipment for the yet to be, "state of the art" Quad DAT. This Master was rendered into stereo on Normal Cassette Tape and was distributed as the DEMO. More recently the stereo cassette recording was sucked into a PC where it was cleaned up of tape hiss and a few copies became DEMO CD's. Some were given away, others were only distributed around the band members. Eventually this version made it onto Band Camp where you can buy the whole album or individual tracks. Here you can get them for free.
