Radio Clash 116: Born to Synthesise

Sun is shining, all around us, merry christmas everyone…err something’s not totally right there?

Usual tune/talk/ramble interface, with sun shine still hitting the UK like a wet haddock, Bastard #2 at the Macbeth report, and I spend the life savings of small Guatemalan children on CDs and feel fine about it.

You see I spent this whole post and I avoided the bad Sunthesise joke, I’m proud of myself: (64Mb, 88mins)

    Wow…this was a fantastic podcast Tim! I especially liked the Bloody England, Everything I Own and of course the Ed Banger Mix. Do you have Ed Rec 1 yet?

    Loved the downbeat ending, not much for the proto-rap, but amusing nonetheless. Ever hear the New American Orchestra version of the Blade Runner soundtrack? Probably the worst piece of clap trap ever recorded and foisted upon the unsuspecting fans of Blade Runner. “If you could see what I’ve seen with your eyes.” Thankfully, Vangelis released his version after many years and after an over-priced and poorly-produced bootleg came out.

    I’m a huge fan of Vangelis and own pretty much his entire catalog. Favs that are lesser-known: Spiral, See You Later (a little more experimental), 1492 (brings me to tears, literally!), Odes/Rhapsodies with Irene Papas. Awesome musician.
