AS Above...So Below
through a box of tapes from my childhood I came across
a compilation tape that included two tracks from a
Friday Rock show session by a band called "As Above...So
Below". I remember recording that whole Friday Rock
show and playing the AASB tracks a lot. I searched
through the box but unfortunately I could only find
two of the tracks. The Quality wasn't that great as it
was just recorded on a basic Tape/Radio and this is a copy
of that tape.
Song Downloads *:
Here are the tracks that I recorded from the Friday Rock show for you to enjoy:
Through the wonders of the internet I also was sent a recording of the entire Friday Rock Show session by a nice chap from Holland. Here are those tracks. These are better Quality than my copies.
The above files are not really stored on a website
suitable for music downloads so some people have had
some difficulties listening to them. I have also
put them up on youtube

Cassette Inserts from Charlie Noble: (Anyone got a copy of this tape in MP3?)
Where are the band members today?
Charlie Noble (December 2010):
I was contacted by Charlie Noble and he stated that he carried on full time in computers after the band finished and that he still plays bass for fun. His last gig was an open mike session at a pub in High Wycombe. He stated that he hadn't seen Robin or Phil for years. As far as he knew Robin carried on teaching, Phil did some work with the BBC and Dave went into marine biology.
Phil Hodge and Rob Hodge (April 2011):
an email from Phil:
I’m Phil Hodge from ‘As Above So
Below’ fame (and Steve Hillage Band before that). I
wrote all the music for the band. First of all we
had nothing whatever to do with the John Peel show
despite what his tribute site says. We were invited
to do a session for ‘The Friday Rock Show’ by Tommy
Vance and recorded it at the BBC St. John’s Wood
studios. I think it was broadcast twice over the
period of a couple of years. After the band split
(lack of interest by the record companies) I carried
on writing and recording stuff.
Details of the Friday Rock Show Session: (This was sourced from a Peel Session website )
I am still looking for any other information on the band so if you have any please send it to me at:
