In September 2015, The Lemonheads invited us to join them on a short West Coast
tour. A week before we were scheduled to leave, our drummer Murph had to drop
out. Bonnie and Steve had already purchased their flights from Melbourne to LA so
we were committed to playing these shows, but the thought of trying to find
another drummer to emulate Murph's parts just felt wrong.
We decided to throw away our planned set list of "Murph songs" and instead
enlisted Aniela Perry to join us on electric cello for some very slow, cinematic and
open-ended interpretations of "our songs." We all really enjoyed playing these
shows, and experiencing the songs opening themselves up, with space to stretch
out and breathe and be as long as they wanted to be. It was a very freeing experience,
so much room for improvisation from night to night.
