Rig Rundown - Howard Jones Bristol

Howard Jones is currently on a tour of O2 venues with the Humans Lib/ Dream Into Action show. Howard and the band - Robbie Bronnimann (keys, mixing and general master of the universe) and Jonathan Atkinson - electronic drums, recreate those two albums in full. A set of 26 songs. No mean feat for Robbie who deconstructed all the old 2" multitracks and sampled, looped and cajoled them into a shape that allowed it to be played live using Ableton's Live software whilst retaining some flexibility to breathe and extend tracks for each show.

We caught up with Robbie and Jonathan, literally minutes before doors at Bristol's O2 Academy Show last night. 

Thanks to Oliver Davis for the extra footage.
