    Tonights Music.....on TV

    Synth Britannia 9pm BBC4

    Just what it says on the tin- the history of synth music - from kraftwerk, thru the Sheffield new Romantics, Gary Numan and so on.

    Tis really good this one, will bring back lots of memories and some great interviews, including excellent dialogue with my mate Martyn Ware.

    Followed by Synth Britannia at the BBC.

    Can't wait.

    I'll be watching / listening ~ just my era. They might even have a go at 'Ricky's Hand' from Fad Gadget.

    The missus is out so I'll get the surround sound on and pump it up loud.

    Mr Tovey was a remarkable, and very very under-rated individual !

    Just found this on iPlayer. Should be a great soundtrack to this morning's ironing.

    Anyone see that episode of Buzzcocks when Bill Bailey's team had to do the Guess The Song with synths? Bill started playing allsorts on his, clearly a cracking musician.

    Excellent viewing (esp Mr Numan) while being stuck at home with the dreaded lurgy/heavy cold.

    I notice next Friday BBC4 has a 'KrautRock' programme followed by a Kraftwerk concert

    It was probably the best programme of its type i've seen. Very well written & researched
    Even the journalist they used - Simon Reynolds - was a great choice.
