Hiya Paul,
Yes we need a before Democracy recording probably much more than Before The Gate(although that sounds a bit like an Indian Restaurant)
Still love Aeon and Absent Friends though...

Yes, that rings a bell, Jamie.

We had a bootleg from Amsterdam '96 gig on the old site. Don't have it
anymore but it must be knocking around someone. Jon will probably have
it. Never gave it much of a listen because the quality wasn't great
and they were obviously stoned out of their minds because the playing
wasn't very good either, which is really rare for them. But I do
recall it sounded different so, yes, the loops could have been in.
