Man with a Van

Its always nice to get home from a hard day at the office to find theres a surprise parcel waiting for you, especially when it has a Static Caravan sticker on it. My friend Geoff who runs it sent me a recent selection of his ever eclectic releases - the unifying factor this time being that they were all mastered by me. But what was also interesting was the other bits and bobs and trinkets that he put in the box. For a start there was a tiny reel of metallic masking tape. Then a small bag of pure metal samples, including brass, copper, bronze, zinc, aluminium, steel and silver. Geoff is a scientist. Here is a film that Hannah Peel made, it explains everything (note: me at 5.38 balancing on synths)

Anyway the releases are all exemplary, including singles from Tula, Laura J Martin (who came by the studio on monday as I am about to master her debut album) and a compilation CD of the Steve Moore vinyl that Geoff has been releasing. Here is a sample from the last track track from Vaalbara
