RH moves to Amsterdam. In his absence the remaining OYCers play the Noise Museum festival in Nevers, France, calling the group O Yuki Conjugate + Sons of Silence = Spoke as a hymn to the humble bicycle. The live recording of this concert was released on Noise Museum. Flushed with success they play other gigs including Rotterdam, where RH has the bizarre experience of sitting in the audience and watching the band he’s been in for 13 years. In response he starts recording his washing machine and microwave, sounds later to form the backbone of the Alp project.
