Stone Jets have been calling London home for the past 3 years. Having weathered the pandemic storm, they put together a show which is immortalized in a body of work they – now – present as a construct of their new normal.
The high lofty ceilings, north chapel and 5-bay aisled nave of St. James’ West Hampstead (built in 1885-1888) sealed a moment that could only be considered as immutable.
A night that had a support act and a runtime of over 90 minutes, has now been condensed into an extended play of six songs that (re-) introduce Stone Jets to an audience in a special manner that no way else can. A live recorded performance following a one take approach, bearing it all, presents Stone Jets unmasked.
Track listing: 1.Take A Look At Me 2.Wise Words 3.Illusion 4.I Can’t Live Without You 5.Going Out 6.Feeling Good (Encore version)
Personnel Given Nkanyane (Vocals and Bass on Track 2 and 5) Manfred Klose (Guitars and Backing Vocals) Adrien Latgé (Drums and Backing Vocals) John Schaffer (Backing Vocals and Bass on Track 1, 3, 4, 6)
With over a hundred people in attendance (unmissable on the recordings), life before and after what was a global phenomenon is shared beyond the confounds of what started out as a chilly night in London, West Hampstead.
