Hi Steve. Is it true that somewhere online there is/was a version of ‘Sow The Salt’ live but with Tim Elsenburg singing a different vocal to Thomas Feiner’s? Thanks.

Yes that’s right. Tim and I started to co-write for my solo album ‘Slope’ in ’06 and while the recording was still in progress I was invited to join Yukihiro Takahashi’s ‘Something Blue’ tour that same year. Tim and I opened the show with a selection of tracks from ‘Slope’ before it was completed (‘Ballad Of A Deadman’, ‘Sleepyard’, and what became ‘Sow The Salt’ but was at the time featuring a different vocal by Tim). Yukihiro’s set followed and was a laptop performance which I joined. This small tour obviously pre-empted the one-off ‘Slope’ live performance in Tokyo in ’08 and was the first opportunity to work with visual artist Shoko Ise who went on to make all the back-projection films for my show. Tim is one of my favourite people, always great company and a very talented songwriter.

  1. great pics. I remember them when first online. Sounded like a lot of fun. I also remember Tim had a blog at the time with a lot of comments about that tour & Japan visit in general. Met Tim at a SBP gig and he is indeed a lovely guy , Just a shame his song writing talents don’t reach a wider audience.
