Just saw And Also the Trees in Tokyo MARZ! Twice. They opened both shows with Prince Rupert from Farewell to the Shade. The bass player, Ian, drilled that bass line. Next came The Suffering of the Stream and the haunting guitar intro. The drummer pushed the band hard with what seemed like jazz riffs on the high hat. He was in some form of manic control the entire gig. The keyboardist played cool and collected, like Sue Peters from Fiction. Occasional recorder and hammered dulcimer made appearances too. And of course Simon recited lyrics throughout, sometimes hanging on the mic stand, sometimes crouching on the stage and sometimes leaning over the audience. Justin made musical art with his guitar. As a seasoned guitar player I hardly noticed anything resembling a traditional chord.
After the gig I got a chance to chat with the manager, who just happens to be Stephen Burrow's sister and Justin Jones' wife. Really nice woman named Charlotte, if I remember correctly. Said she wants to book shows in New York and California if at all possible. Turns out, Simon and Justin's sister lives near San Francisco!
