From The Vaults: Mermaids, Libertines & Doomed Romantics

This very ramshackle Half Moon All Stars album, also featuring (my) local favourites Jessica Law and Sam Taplin, was put together way back in 2014 by basically just sticking a recording device at the stage. So, prestine quality live sound it ain’t. But it’s basically the only existing version of an HM/AS band set.

It’s a little rough around the edges. And… it’s also rough in the middle. It’s rough all over, basically. But the band was always at its best at that location: in the musicians alcove of the Half Moon pub on St Clements. And I think (I hope) this captures some of the best of that.
