Delia Derbyshire

she created the dr. who theme, uncredited. this is at the bbc radiophonic workshop. but ,of course ,the past is ' old' and tired. modern music has no past, only ' those who are creating history now'. hang the bloody fucking dj. i am sick to fuck of the men and women who created and nurtured electronic music being marginailized by arrogant ignorant self- absorbed tots. so this is the price of growing old- listening to snotty youth blow it's own tin eared sampled , stolen horn?
i'll take delia and her tape machines over some ass with FinalScratch and Acid- she just shows so many people up for the pompous pricks they are.there's no future without a past and the past simply blows most people away.

OK...I will say it, that was cool...

and so very very proper and polite :)

Would you care for a crumpet at high tea with your electronic music? :)

she died a few years ago. they did incredible things- all in that stone age called the 1960s. the cds of dr who music and the radiophonoic worshop work have been reissued-the original albums few as there was of them are like hen's teeth. overstockdotcom had some of the reissues for cheap.

she ended up working in bookstores and abandoning music but was redisovered by the first wave of british techno only to die not long after becoming reinvolved in music.

but who cares- what's the latest rehashed drum and base crap that sounds like the drum and bass crap from 10 years ago but sees itself as innovative and original because those ' enjoying' it were a few years off of sesame street when the early 1990s happened. you can't get a dj with a gun but you can try...

Also see Raymond Scott.....

yeah-i love the pictures on that compilation of him in a room in his house with banks and banks of machinary.innovation, vision, obsession= financial ruin and no one notices how great you were until youre dead and gone....

and nikola tesla inveted the radio.. but who believes it?

I couldn't agree with you more. That woman was amazing. Naturally she was uncredited, as most truly talented people are.

As for the DJ and the gun, I'd be sadistic enough to record that for a sound sample for some tired little piss ant to remix.

thank god for acid loops or some of us would be going to art school for 8 years or working slinging coffee instead of torturing the populace with thier ' innovation' and ' taste'.

and some fuck stick is trying to access my elgay-may delia derbyshire stuff a moog up their blow hole and loop it....
