Asimov + Foss + All India Radio = Win 

If I do say so myself!

The Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov was reissued in 1977 with new artwork by Chris Foss and reissued again in 1979 in a superb slipcase by Panther books in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Being the wide-eyed scifi-obsessed adolescent I was at the time the artwork, although infamous for having nothing to do with the books, had *everything* to me buying and reading them!

Music: Echo Other from Echo Other (Expanded Edition)

Fall Remixes Instrumentals Free Download! 

Hello everyone, 

It seems I am perpetually finding songs on my many hard drives that I've forgotten about. Today I found the instrumental versions of the Fall Remix album released a few years ago. I'd prepared them for a TV music opportunity last year but then went back to working on the new album and forgot all about them. 

So here they are for you for free.

Lo Fi Groovy Single Out Now

Free Archival EP Download 

The new All India Radio album vinyl edition is still running behind schedule. Many apologies for that. The vinyl explosion of the last few years is reaching supernova proportions and record factories are not handling it. It's looking like a February release date. I'll confirm the date as soon as I can.
 
In the meantime here's a free EP for you of archival tracks from the early 2000's I've recently unearthed. Click the image below to download it for free.
 

New Album Update 

I'm very proud to announce the new album will be released by legendary Chicago label Minty Fresh who released our Echo Other and Fall albums back in 2007/08. It's  great to be working with them again. I encourage you to sign up to their mailing list, and if you haven't already, the All India Radio mailing list!

Album pre-order options will be announced closer to the release date.



 

New Free Download Desert Tapes 1984 - 1994 

I've just released a new album called Desert Tapes 1984 - 1994. It's a pre-All India Radio solo album consisting of soundscapes, tape manipulations and lo-fi electronic doodles from the 1980’s to the 1990’s. Most of these songs were originally recorded on reel to reel and cassette tapes and were mastered from those same tapes.
Embrace the lo-fi!

Available now as a free/name your price from Bandcamp or a paid download from iTunes.

Some of you might already have an earlier version of this album which was originally released a few years ago under the title 'Destroy all Demos' with different artwork and tracklisting.

All India Radio Meets Pink Floyd's Roger Waters (Sort Of) 

Sorry I know that headline was a bit click bait-ish. But one of our t-shirts DID make it back stage to meet Roger Waters, Pink Floyd founder and one of my all time music heroes after his show with at the Newport Folk Festival a few days ago. Word is Roger had a good look at the T-shirt. Alas it's the closest I'll ever get!

If you want one of these t-shirts they are available here

 

Ambient Guitar Video Series 3 

The next video in my ambient series is a version of a new song called Sunburst which will appear on the upcoming new album. Sign up to our mailing list for updates on the forthcoming new album

The pedal chain I used is: guitar into a Bad Monkey tube overdrive, Boss Chorus (CE-3), Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay, Strymon Bluesky Reverberator which was stereo out into the cassette recorder.

Ambient Video Series 2 


This is the second video in my little ambient series. Its a slow, expansive version of a new track from the upcoming new album. The Bluesky pedal creates the atmospheric shimmering sound, helped by a long analog delay pedal. The music was recorded on a cassette deck which noticeably changed speed towards the end!

The pedal chain is: guitar into a Bad Monkey tube overdrive (didn't use that one in this video though), Boss Chorus (CE-3), Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay, Strymon Bluesky Reverberator which was stereo out into the cassette recorder.

  • Just saw the trailer for Star Trek Beyond. Hmmm. Hopefully the film's better than the last one. This is Mike Minor’s revision of the USS Enterprise for the cancelled Star Trek: Phase II series (1977) which later morphed into Star Trek The Motion Picture (1979). From Starlog magazine 25, 1979. #startrek #startrekbeyond #theenterprise #scifi #scifiart #starlog #mikeminor
