Playing tracks by
Spirit, Michael Bundt, Five Stairsteps, Casuals, Cat Stevens and more.
This is an hour section from the first Listening Glass at Telfords Warehouse, Chester. It's not a technical exercise, more a compilation of some of the interesting vinyl I've been buying (Cob in Bangor / Grey 'n' Pink in Chester / Diverse in Newport) & nicking off my dad over the last 6 months.
I didn't adhere to my own brief of "a night of vinyl crackle and ochre tones: music from the mellow underground 1960 - 1976" but it's as accurate a description as any: there's plenty of crackle, some ochre tones, much of it is 'mellow', but 1 track, at least, crept North of the chronological parameters!
So, I hope this helps pass an hour with some diverting sounds.
Thanks to those who have blown some amazing music through my life over the last few months. This is a hamfisted celebration of it. Demonstrating the kind of turntable wizardry that would give beatmatching aesthetes nightmares in puce. But it's all about the music, innit?
So, here is some.
I hope you enjoy it.
