Steven Wilson has released a recording taken from Porcupine Tree’s first ever live performance at the Nag’s Head in High Wycombe, UK on the 4th December 1993. ‘Voyage 34‘ was the very first song performed by the band on the night, and you can hear it in all it’s glory below, along with a note from Steven.
“It’s mind blowing for me to realise that it is almost exactly 20 years since Porcupine Tree made their first ever live appearance, at a small club called the Nag’s Head in High Wycombe, UK on the 4th December 1993. To commemorate the anniversary you can listen to a recording from the archives of the first song played at that first ever show, the Van Der Graaf Generator / Dead Can Dance sampling, David Gilmour meets The Orb fusion of Voyage 34 (years before he did actually collaborate with The Orb!),, the birth of PT as a band and a performing entity. It was recorded straight from the mixing desk so the balance is a bit strange, but actually considering how nervous we must have all been, it’s not bad at all”
Steven Wilson was recently awarded ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2013 Progressive Music Awards held at London’s Kew Gardens on 3rd September. Steven’s latest solo album ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing (and other stories)‘ was released in late February to wide critical acclaim. Steven is back for a second leg of touring to promote the record in October, where he begins a lengthy UK & European run of shows that last until the end of November.
