This was fun.

Glad this moment in PWL live history got on film. I recently played at the frankly quite terrifying art space/venue hidden away inside London Bridge station that is ‘Shunt’.
Owing to the recent decision by the Qchord to stop working I decided to run out of the room I was playing in and do the first half of ‘Memorial Hall’ on the piano which was standing outside. Before running back inside to do the second half in the usual style.
As most of Shunt is in almost total darkness the first part of the video basically looks like a candle singing a song, given occasional flashes of context by people taking pictures. If you’re wondering how the piano keeps playing as I run back into the room, I handed such duties to my associate Christopher Alcxxk – who I’m pretty sure you can also hear singing along.
