About the show

Playing tracks by

Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Jack rose, Captain beefheart, Loren Connors, Hawkwind and more.

FACT mix 173 is a very special selection by The Books, kicking off with the G-force motorik space-rock of Hawkwind’s ‘Born To Go’ and taking in woozy, enveloping electronics from Mouse on Mars and Aphex Twin as well as plangent guitar reveries from Jack Rose, Loren Connors and Fred Frith, classical minimalism (if that’s not a contradiction in terms) from Philip Glass and pastoral psychedelia from The Soft Machine and Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Lovingly compiled and cleverly sequenced, this is a mixtape in the grand old style – one that paints a vivid picture of the minds behind it; is poignant, personal and timeless.
