Typical laid-back major-key ending riff with quiet sitar

The very end of the 30 July 2008 gig at the Plough. I had not listened back to the recording of this at all, so it was a winning surprise to come across this in December. I immediately wanted to add it to one of the live CDs currently in production, but couldn't decide whether it was too good or not good enough. Chris Cook joined us for this gig on sitar, but he didn't record well. There were glitches all over his stereo track, probably from his laptop (yet again, I wish we'd taken a direct signal), and the sitar is only nearly in tune. Hence it's a bit low in the mix here, and mostly I've looped up a clean bit where he was in unison with the Laffsta's simple bass riff. Os creates sweeping background textures, Mike takes his time over his guitar swells, and I add the occasional tremolo bass pad towards the end.
