Playing tracks by
Vernon Elliot, Ron Grainer, The Shangri-La’s, Roy Budd, Frederic Chopin and more.
An odd one this……. if you know John Zorn's brilliant album "Spillane" then you might get what I was trying to do. Er…maybe.
Basically, it's an ever changing collage of music I like…hopefully it forms a kind of story in your head, but if not, just see it as a DJ set with extras. It's been done before, nothing new.
So, what's in it? Other people's music: sci-fi, soundtracks, synths, easy-listening, 60s big beat, soul, opera, post-punk….. a bit of a mixture really.
Forgot to mention that there are some Beach Boys outtakes in there too.
(Also contains excerpts from interviews with Martin Hannett, early sound experiments with the IBM Computer and a Delia Derbyshire experiment with John Peel!)
