Me at Sound on Sound Magazine’s SynthFest , Sheffield Octagon, 1st October 2016
For anyone who might be interested I will be present at the “Modular Meet” section of this festival. There has been a big resurgence of interest in modular synthesisers over the last few years. Many many new manufacturers of modules have sprung up creating a wide variety of devices from traditional item s to some very strange ones. Because of this renewed activity and as a contrast to all the commercial stuff, I’ll be taking my old self-built modular system. It will be there much as it was when I gigged with it in the early eighties and pretty much as you can find it described in the synthesiser section of this site. I hope it will add some extra colour to what promises to be a great event.

VOD Records have released a superbly presented 8 LP boxed set collection of British Synthesiser artists on Vinyl, which I’m very pleased to say, includes my first album “Where Dark Forces Meet”. The huge boxed set of 8 12” vinyl records presented in a set of nicely matching sleeves, I can say without hesitation, truly is a lovely thing to own. This also is the first time my first album has been made available in Vinyl. It can be purchase separately if desired. The boxed set is called “British Cassette Culture Recordings 1975-1985”. Follow the link to VOD Records for info. I’ll put some images of the sleeves on this site in due course.
Cherry Red Records have now released beautiful 4 CD compilation of formative uk electronica 1975- 1984 called “Close to the Noise Floor”.......... 60 groups and artists have each contributed a track (including one from me) to this hugely impressive collection of electronic music. Not only this but the whole compilation is beautifully package in the form of a CD sized hard-backed book. Inside, accompanying the CDs, there is a complete written section on each artist and a collection of related photos and images.
