Il nome adottato non era ancora In Cahoots ma i brani in scaletta erano già ben definiti, e destinati a divenire classici del gruppo, allora un quartetto: Above and Below, Your Root 2, Second Sight, Eastern Region, Hard Shoulder, naturalmente Calyx, e altri ancora. Una registrazione ora disponibile al sito Phil Miller Legacy riporta a una delle sue primissime apparizioni al Bull & Gate in Kentish Town a Londra, nel dicembre 1982. Con il chitarrista c'erano Elton Dean, Richard Sinclair e Pip Pyle: "In Cahoots was founded in 1982 as a vehicle for Phil’s compositions. Here is the earliest recorded gig we have: 1982 at the famous Bull & Gate, Kentish Town, London, before the band got the name In Cahoots and went out as The Phil Miller Quartet: with Phil on guitar, Pip Pyle on drums, Elton Dean on sax and Richard Sinclair on bass. The band played many gigs at the Bull & Gate. The first was on 9th November and this one was on 14th December."
