    Default Interesting talk coming up by Bob Stanley

    At the ICA:

    A Girl, A Clown, A Blackboard: Trade Test Transmissions

    Wednesday 25th April

    "Bob Stanley of St. Étienne presents a talk covering the development of Test Cards over the years, and his fascination with the music that accompanied them."

    A pity it clashes with Brillo over in Shoreditch - but I'll be making a mad dash from one to the other!

    Can I admit to "collecting" testcards on here?

    Probably not...

    BBC Manchester threw away loads of specially made testcard music LPs a few years back (alongside an almost complete run of late 60s/early 70s KPMs/DeWolfes) all of which were badged as "BBC Coded Music Scheme" albums. Some weird stuff on some of these, which seemed to be made up of random Polish orchestras/Telemusic cues plus odd things like tracks from the Dean Ford & The Gaylords (stop sniggering at the back...) album. Well, the ones I saw did, anyway.

    ISTR that Senor Trunk had one of the Test Card Circle chaps on his show a while back, which was one of those programmes that resets the view on how detail-focused some, um, ah, hobbies can become.
