back ups and second waves

absolutely synapse-deep in to the SND album'Atavism'...

This second track is 8 minutes of sculptured ice-funk brilliance,crystalline and swoon.

very austerepackaging too.

I will certainly miss the sometimes irritating but always interesting and certainly wonderfully turned out, illustrated and photgraphed Plan B magazine; another victim of 'these troubled times' (@Alan Sugar, returned with thanks)...
this 'scandal' in the modular synth world, the seeming demise of boutique synth maker Plan B, whose electronic magicks I have longed for on many occasions, has also left a sad taste.

oh poor neglected blog…

Maybe see you there
