Eccentronic Research Council & Maxine Peake

So, my resolution to see more live music in 2013 is off to a good start.  My task is made a little easier by having such a good venue, the Trades Club, right on my doorstep.

The Eccentronic Research Council played last weekend.  Fronted by the excellent Maxine Peake, they treated us all to tracks from their album the 1612 Overture.  It's a concept album based on the injustices of the Pendle witch trials - and very good it is too.  You can see and hear a little bit about the album in a Culture Show clip here.

After years of Pendle Hill being a significant presence on the landscape, I feel now's the time to do some reading up about it all.

The venue was fitting for such a performance with branches looming onto the stage, theatrical lighting, and the all important dry ice.  Here are a selection of images from the night......
