  • 80s vinyl containing computer code

    http://www.kempa.com/blog/archives/000053.html

    This is all I need to hear as I skipped lunch to go through a record shop thats closing down tomorrow - everything €2 except 7"s 50c. No idea if the stuff I got is any good but I spent nearly 40 quid so I'm sure there's some decent bits.

    i bought that Inner City Unit (ace band) LP at the time. it took WEEKS of fiddling with the tone controls on the stereo to get it to load, but load it did.

    the program was quite a funny discography and included reviews of all the band's favourite transport caffs and greasy spoons around the country, gleaned from many hawkwind and ICU tours.

      I've 2 Inner City Unit mini lps - not sure of titles though. I'm a big fan of Hawkwind so I tend to pick 'em up if I see 'em.

        I have the 'Kissing The Pink' one that someone mentions at the bottom of that page somewhere. I seem to recall the Mr Hopkinson has it too. I found it a few years ago so I've never gotten it into a BBC to try it out. I'm sure it's fantastic though.

          It's not an 80's thing (98 or so?), but 'The Spectrum EP' on Plastic Raygun had a Sinclair Spectrum computer data track on. Of course, I just used it for scratchmeister turntablist type purposes..

          Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

            one of them must be the classic 'blood and bone' with great cover art. they even made a (very bad and very funny) video for that one which is apparently proper rare - my mate's still got his copy.

              Yep got one of those, and the Thompson Twins flexi on that page, too! Also converted photoshop.exe into raw audio data for the electronic breakdown/up of a track once . . . and it got though Russian customs where, audio cds are actually *checked* for hidden data, apparently, sometimes, someone once told me.

                Yeah it is actually. The art is quite similar to the President's Tapes.

                Nik Turner is a lunatic - I've seen him a few times and he would play his sax at the opening of a bag of crisps. I've seen him keep playing unamplified frequently, either after the stage has shut or while the bands are changing over. And usually this is after he's just played with whatever band have finished.
