05/08/2007 - The Subcommittee

Mick took some Lunacy Board material out for a spin on the stage last weekend, at the Hands Off 2007 Theremin Symposium. As well as taking part in the 'UK League of Thereminists', playing a number of fairly experimental group pieces, he played a number of new Lunacy Board and old Deserters songs at the 'survivors party'. This included appearances by guest stunt thereminists Wilco Botermans, Hypnotique, Terry Bowler and Anthony Springall.

The whole event was recorded, so we hope to have some clips of this in the not-too-distant future.
