Quadelectronic 61: on Ultima Thule gig info page

Improvised electronics, anything from outer space nebula meltdowns to Terry Riley in a jazz café!

Chris Conway, Alan Freeman, Steve Freeman, Jim Tetlow, Jez Creek, etc.
Anyone with a sense of adventure is welcome to join-in the impromptu jams!
Of course an audience welcome too, and it's free!
Refreshments, tea, coffee available, but no bar, so bring your own booze if you wish
