Originally this was going to be just available at gigs, but it's turned out so well we thought we might as well make it generally available...

Essentially it's a sampler of some of our favourite songs, recorded 'in session' style (live backing tracks, one-take vocals)... but they've turned out to be as good as, if not better than the originals. Here's the sleevenotes...

"The “Live-O-Graphic” Session… ten revved up, incendiary, ‘nearly live’ versions of previously released songs! The live backing tracks were burned out by the MK3 line-up of The Galileo 7 in one frantic hour, hemmed in by the mechanical clutter and ephemera of a working lithographic press, ignoring thumping headaches induced by a toxic combination of chemical vapours and extreme volume levels… but high on the alchemic rock’n’roll fumes of a spontaneous, unplanned recording session! 

During the recording of the recent ‘Cruel Bird/Nowhere People’ 45, the band played a couple of older songs to warm up - and knew immediately that they had to commit the rest of their live set to tape for posterity. These versions crackle with almost uncontainable energy, and outstrip the originals for verve and intensity. The one-take vocals and harmonies were added later in a similarly pressured and time-limited session to preserve the intense feel of the tracking session. The result is this red hot ‘Live-O-Graphic’ sampler of some of The Galileo 7’s best songs!
