Fred Frith´s Gravity
Check out this great video from Fred Frith´s Gravity performance at Roulette (NYC) 20 September 2013.
They play "Terrain", dedicated to Lindsay Cooper (1951 - 2013).
"Gravity" was released by Ralph in 1980, and I just have to track down the original soon, with the Alfreda Benge cover. Promise!
"Terrain" was on the Art Bears album "Hopes and Fears" (Recommended 1978), on which Lindsay Cooper played, and on the 1990 CD reissue of "Gravity".
According to Roulette Events, the band is:
