I saw them in London in early 2002 if I remember correctly, at some kind of "country club" like thing in south-west London. I was blown away.
Does anyone happen to have an idea where exactly that might have been? I know it was announced on John Peel's show.
they are so good. as said before, you need to see them to know what everyone's talking about. I saw them @Kings place in London, just sat with my eyes closed and drowned into the sounds...though before that gig I had no idea who the hell are Bays.
As part of the TOWER FESTIVAL, WOMAD Presents World Music at the Tower will take place over the weekend of 19th – 20th September at the historic and prestigious TOWER OF LONDON.
Sunday 20th is headlined by the groundbreaking improvisational sound clash of The Bays and The Heritage Orchestra following on from their storming performance at the Big Chill and their sellout show at the Royal Festival Hall last year, the TOWER FESTIVAL is their only London performance in 2009 with the project. Also performing on Sunday is the legendary Tony Allen and more to be announced.
The ubiquitous Womad flags and workshops will also be a feature of the weekend. Other special guests for the Saturday and Sunday shows are to be announced shortly. Doors 3.30pm. Weekend tickets available.
