09 The Heater 4:51 min – track sample


SKU: N/A Category:


One aspect of the early years of ‘Reconciliation’ was the incredible speed and versatility that Alan Dargin brought to the band. For volume, dexterity and pace on a didgeridoo he was quite simply the best. Sometimes the band would start a reel and then gradually increase the tempo more and more until the tune seemed to take off and fly. While the rest of the musicians were bursting a gut to keep it going, Alan was streaking effortlessly ahead. When performed in the acoustic tent at Glastonbury the last tune of the gig was ‘The Heater’. An evolvement from the earlier idea. Though Alan by this stage had gone to pursue a film career yet the band were right there driving faster and faster and then flying.
