Given the size of the population in and around the city, it’s relative proximity to London, the fact of an arts-dominated university and a school of art that was attended by no less than Brian Eno, it is a thing of eternal wonder to me that Winchester has such a lack of gigs and venues. Where is everyone? With all that in mind, I guess it makes some perverse kind of sense that when there is a gig, it’s hidden away beneath the floorboards of an old, tilting boozer, away from the weight of the untenanted rockeries of history that litter the rest of the city. It was arranged by Joe Evans, head of Running on Air records, a micro label based out of a front room a few minutes walk from the Hyde Tavern, and featured some of his own audio-visual work (which I ashamedly missed) and two ambient/drone acts, Venona Pers and Ekca Liena.
