Due to reasons which most fans will be well aware of by now, Gazpacho’s “Fireworker” 2020 album tour was cancelled. Stuck with the predicament of having a well honed show rehearsed and the prospect of a long period off the road, the band had a decision to make. The idea of a live stream which would reach fans far and wide quickly presented itself and the band had a perfect setting in their very own rehearsal space in beautiful Fredrikstad.
The resulting film is a very moody trip into the world of ‘The Fireworker’, captured on the 25th October 2020. No fixes, no polishes, no light show and no nothing. Not even catering. Just the pure rendition of the music along with a surprise or two for those of you who have been with the band for a while.
In Thomas Andersen’s own words “Gazpacho has always been an ‘anti band’, in the sense that we strive to do things differently. For this reason we wanted an ‘honest’ live stream where we decided not to play the gig on an empty stage with a light show. Instead we decided to perform it exactly how we play when we record or rehearse in the actual room we use.”
The band are now back on the road, but these recordings offer a fine historical nugget from the bands already sterling catalogue.
“Plenty to marvel at in the ensemble and individual playing of these musicians” (Louder Sound)
