A Deist's Poem by The Earthmovers published on 2016-09-04T22:35:09Z After settling in to a monthly residency at The Fallow & Firkin in Harborne, we decided that the sound quality of the PA there was so good (due in no small part to the excellent mixing of resident engineer John McQueen), that it would be worth recording a show. We finally got round to it in December 1994. A multi-track recorder was used, but all we did was set up a couple of Tandy PZM mics at the rear of the hall and send the vocals straight in on their own channel. No post-production occurred. For that reason, Paul came up with the title idea: fallow meaning left as it is. While perhaps not the best gig from that period, it still sounds very good. Kevin Reihill appears as guest rhythm guitar on three of the songs, and provides the tape intro to "The Ghost & Serpent Syzygy". This material was originally released as a tape in January 1995 with cover design by Paul Davies. It was transferred to CD in May 2003. The stunning new cover features original psychedelic artwork by Julie Hatton.
