at Cafe Oto and two locked grooves +

Wednesday 22nd February at Cafe Oto. Alasdair Roberts with Stevie Jones and Alex Neilson.

One ‘real’ locked groove (Heaven 17 – 12″ of ‘Come Live With Me’:

and one ‘accidental’ locked groove (BBC Dance Orchestra -78RPM  – ‘I Like Bananas (Because They Have No Bones):

Also, I just listened to this from King Gong on Discrepant. Recommended.

Repetition (again)

A reader asks:

‘Hi,
about Brian Eno – when you listen to this locked groove does it play smoothly or can you hear the needle kind of popping after each circle?
Best,
Jacek’

Here is a recording of my copy…I would say that this pops too:
