Hyde and Beast, made up of various luminaries of the North East music scene past and present, descended upon Blank Studios as a six-piece for their slot at our Evolution Emerging sessions.

In sharp contrast to the morning's acoustic set up, Dave Hyde and Neil Bassett aka 'Beast' brought a certain amount of chaos with them to live room – requiring a quick switch around of equipment to accommodate the last minute addition of Barry Hyde on Blank's ancient piano. The end result, I'm sure you'll agree, is more than worth it - with their gig later that night being one of the busiest of the evening.
