the (703) basement tapes & fractals



New CDs available soon…

Previously only available as limited edition tape releases, ‘the (703) basement tapes’ were recorded at 703 Commercial Rd. Limehouse, London, before the corporate money machine of Thatcher’s Britain, The London Docklands Development Corporation, in partnership with various other private consortiums, seized all the best waterfront real estate, evicted the squats and the council tenants and built the trendy offices and appartments for the wealthy, that dominate the area today.

703 was a grand old 4 storey, victorian era terrace and the basement was ‘Seventh Seance’s’ rehearsal and recording space. After securing the loan of a Tascam Porta one from ‘Some stumpy goats’ which they had successfully employed to create their ‘Long playing tapeworm’ release, 7S set about capturing the songs that had been the cornerstones of their live set for the previous year, as well as some new compositions at the time.

As such, this collection represents an archive of a band that was to self destruct, shortly after recording the unreleased ‘Kissing the Skylight’ single at a pucker 24 track recording studio (Tin Pan Alley, Denmark St. London). After gathering dust on our shelves for 20 years, the original 4 track recordings have been digitally re-mastered and are now ready for release.

A big thanks to all those who contributed to making the live shows the buzz that they were and all those who gave time, enthusiasm and cash to make it happen.

seventh seance

“… and if – or rather, when – he becomes some kind of star, and Seventh Seance some kind of household name,” Robin Gibson, Sounds Magazine, UK – 1984.

Welcome to the new website, its been a long time coming.

After 15 years of alternative life in New Zealand, and yes we do mean the whole hippie deal, organic fruit & veg, building timber houses and cabinets out of firewood, renewable power systems and acoustic sing-a-longs round the camp fire after a successful days fishing in the big blue Pacific, Seventh Seance are back.

Plans in the pipeline, new cd releases and new material
