Moors Music



When we were filming the Zombies 85 film Maf shot some footage of me driving up on the moors. So I have set a bit of it to music, all composed on the Roland 100M modular. The sounds were set up using a miraculous set of books called The Synthesizer made by Roland to accompany the System 100M - see below

Wrangler News


Here is some Wrangler News. We have a new online shop! Here you can buy CDs, Vinyl, T-Shirts, and we will be adding some more cool stuff soon - like signed artwork and stuff! Also, here is a flyer Dancon did for our upcoming UK shows:

Serge Flows


The Serge Modular is a very curious device - not least because it's modules are not really 'modular'. Each panel contains a different array of pre-chosen modules which are specified when purchasing a system. Therefore when buying second hand panels it is always the case that someone else has planned which modules are put together, and they have invariably been smoking pot. I have been looking for the highly elusive "Wilson Analog Delay" module for many years but they are extremely rare and the only ones I have seen have been in panels with other modules I have not wanted for one reason or another. Or they have been too overpriced for me to consider. Well luckily I managed to find a UK seller on ebay with a panel at the right price, and what is more the module combination on this panel is fantastic - I now have the remaining modules that I have been looking for to complete my Serge system - including a Wave Multiplier, Envelope Detector, Pulse Divider, N-Comp, Wilson Delay, and two mixers.

Cat Twin


Me and Phil saw this on a poster in Zurich Airport last week - looks like a Gazelle Twin cat! That reminds me - the new Gazelle Twin album is out tomorrow - YAY!

Quadrasonics


Sefa and Ben sent me a magazine through the post - its called Electronics Today from 1972. Its really interesting reading through it - imagining a world where digital watches were an exciting development on the horizon, and the likes of Sansui would fill our homes with amazing Quadrasonic Sound. That never caught on really...
