Good Gort! GORT's Gone!

Just been listening to a track by GORT. It's rather lovely yet, I'm told, the band has broken up after only one gig. Hey fella's what gives? Alan Laws, John Pope and Jeff Armstrong, you gel wonderfully on this track - has someone got sweaty feet? Read Hazel Hanley's review.

Thanks for your kind words lance.
I think you are talking about the 35 minute improvised jam tune, I must admit it kind of worked, playing something totally improvised and listenable was the goal, and I think we managed at times. We are all kind of busy, and Gort is inactive for a bit, but in some configuration or other Gort will play again!
It would be a waste of a good name otherwise,
there aren't enough bands named after an interplanetary robot policeman !
