Check out this fleabay auction - the most dustiest loft-found-synth ever! The seller didn't even bother to dust the whole synth down - just enough to read the name. That'l do. Actually, its a very rare synth - I've never seen one before. I guess its a kit from the E&MM mag back in the day

Shifting Serge

Just got the mighty Serge back from Keith, who did a TON of work on it - its needed some love considering I have never had anything fixed on it since I put it all together - some of those panels I got 15 years ago or more! Doesn't time fly when your having fun..

This patch uses the Analog Shift Register to delay a sequencer pattern by 2 steps before going to a 2nd oscillator. They both go into the Wilson Analog Delay which is being VC'd by the sequencer too

The Dusseldorf

Just got back from a flying visit to Dusseldorf, where we played as part of the ElectriCity festival. Dusseldorf is the epicentre of european art music, being home to the likes of Kraftwerk (Kling-Klang studio, now defunct) and Joseph Beuys (Dusseldorf Academy of Art)

Here we are in the modernist conference venue

Heres us on stage, thanks to Rudi.

I was lucky enough to be met at the airport my my fellow bandmates, who had gone out the day before for Mal's talk at the music conference

We were playing on the bill before Michael Rother, a very nice man, and one responsible for virtually inventing Krautrock. Here is a little bit of his set I caught on camera
