The Gnosmos

Thursday 21st June 2018 9pm

Tonight we welcome for the first time at Number 39 The Gnosmos, a Rock/Fusion trio whose members have the most formidable credentials, stand by for a bit of name dropping...


Playing electric guitar will be Graham Clark who is actually primarily a violinist and a most famous one at that. He worked extensively with Soft Machine guitarist, the late Daevid Allen, and they gave rebirth to the 60's/70's psychedelic band Gong and also played together in The Magick Brothers. With other exploits too numerous to mention Graham has also played World premières at The Barbican and been featured soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra.


On bass guitar and laptop will be composer and record producer, Dave Sturt. Dave played with the 70's Africa/Latin band Jade Warrior and went on to work with the likes of Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour, Roxy Music's Andy Newmark, Bowie sideman Earl Slick and Tubular Bells producer Tom Newman. He has also played bass with the reformed Gong, Steve Hillage and Bill Nelson (Be-Bop Deluxe). Going on he has composed soundtracks for the TV and film industries and also released his own album 'Dreams & Absurdities' featuring many of the names already mentioned.


On drums is Peter Fairclough who has been a professional drummer for over 30 years as well as being a song writer and music educator at numerous colleges and universities throughout. Peter's main experience is playing jazz and improvisation with names such as Keith Tippett, The Engine Room Favourites and Mike Westbrook but has also played Rock with Combat Astronomy, Experimental with The Inclusion Principle and Folk with Michael J Tinker. Other associations have been with The Bournemouth Sinfonietta, The Matrix Ensemble, Peter King, Martin Archer and most notably Rod Hull & Emu!
