Working with different drummers after being a solid unit for so many years was also going to be testing. 
The various tracks that feature Chris Smith, a mate of Stuart and Bruce's from Scotland and Pat Ahern, an old colleague of mine from times past, show what a considerable hole Mark left us to fill, but they brought their own identities to the tracks, as did Mark. 
But as this mixed set of rare recordings show, the ambition to forge ahead was still very much in evidence. 
Experimentation and lunacy were very much on the menu as well as the more serious writings during these era's.
