Henry Cow – Beautiful As The Moon; Terrible As An Army With Banners (Live 1976)

Incredible footage of a band who, judging from this and bearing in mind the composition,  rehearsed like mad. This is when Slapp Happy front Woman Dagmar Krause joined in with proceedings (which led to the wonderful Art Bears), and the band took their RIP sound right out there. Cutler’s drumming is just phenomenal; and he looked like as much as an octopus as he always sounded on record. This is a 1976 live version of a track from the bands 1975 album ‘In Praise Of Learning’.
