Well, its happened, they've found an even more obscure figure in the already totally obscure genre of radiophonic music. Like its not enough that fans will shell out three figures for antique 45s of primitive electronic bleeps and bloops, and pour over the scant handful of snapshots and (even scanter) video clips of the creators of this forgotten music, but now they have a new idol to focus on. I really like radiophonic recordings, basically sound effects made with signal generators and tape loops, designed for radio and television. A lot of music nerds do... and I am sure that a very large part of the allure is the rarity of the recordings and the obscurity of the artists involved. What is lost on the larger public, is that you can trace a direct line from all modern popular music directly back to the Radiophonic scene. If you think for one second that Dubstep would exist without the contributions of giants like FC Judd, then your parents and teachers are correct- you don't have the slightest concept of history, and you are a shallow fool. That said, get your know-nothing, Disney-fied ass on over to PUBLIC INFORMATION where they not only have more information about this Titanic Progenitor of Radiophonic Sound than anyone previously has been able to find, but they are releasing TODAY an anthology of his recordings for all to hear and enjoy. Internet provides!
