This is one I made earlier….about a week ago as it happens so there are some new bits and pieces, blips on the radar, as well as tracks from way back.  I had a fruitful trip to the excellent Centre for Better Grooves in Bristol which turned up both the Lalo Schifrin/Black Dog thing for a quid plus a nice copy of Hugh Hopper‘s first solo album 1984 – one of those records I’d always wanted to get but never quite found at the right price until now.

On another digging trip in Nottingham recently I heard some of the James Holden album in Forever Records, another great little shop where I picked up the Nahid Akhtar LP, feeding my ongoing obsession with totally bonkers film music from the Indian subcontinent, on the excellent Finders Keepers label.

Both the Mr. Thing, Ras G and J Rocc tracks were all sourced in a similar way; Mr Thing being allowed to visit the John Peel archive and plunder sounds to his heart’s delight for First Word Records and the others being part of a dublab project in which four producers were each given 5 dollars to spend on 5 records each and then come up with a track.

See how they did it here.

Then there’s a clip from an amazing film soundtrack:  The London Road tells the story of a murder investigation in Ipswich, told through verbatim transcriptions of interviews with local people and reporters, so their words are turned into musical phrases and often sung by a huge chorus.

No time to detail all the tracks here but please feel free to comment and ask about anything.
