NRJ Radio Broadcast : Ski Live at Electro Deluxe - Le Fish Club in Lyon

I've just unearthed a gig I did on 6th October 2000 in France as part of my promotional tour for the 'Life Changes' album. The gig was at a club called 'Le Fish' which was basically a boat on the river in Lyon

The night was called 'Electro Deluxe' and it was broadcast live on NRJ Radio..

I've uploaded some photos of the gig here.

The band consisted of a 'power trio'...
Jim Carmichael - Drums
Francis Hylton - Bass
Ski Oakenfull - Keys & Vocals

I have created a page now for all 6 tracks:

Musicity London

I have recently been commissioned alongside six other artists to compose a piece of music in response to a building, location or aspect of London that inspired me. I chose the BT Tower. The idea is that you can visit these locations at specific times to exclusively hear and download the tracks through the Musicity App which will be available soon. The project will be 'live' from October 1st. Meanwhile you can visit these links to get more information:
