    Not music – The Leveson Inquiry 

    Watching the powerful and corrupt getting grilled is entertaining and the Leveson inquiry offers all that and more. It is reality TV of the highest order.

    The legal team assisting Leveson is doing a good job of exposing the hypocrisy / corruption, but to complete the drama the inquiry needs a kick arse sound track.

    Here’s track one – The Fall – Telephone Thing from Extricate. Any other suggestions?

    Track two – De La Soul – Ring Ring Ring (thanks William)

    Nuggets 203 – Krautrock 3 by Paul on Grooveshark

    More Kosmische than krautrock. Love the Kraftwerk cover by Jurado and Swift.

    The songs towards the middle are pretty straight forward lockstep sequencers with the beats getting more chaotic towards the end.

    I used to play around with electronic components and I recall setting up a series of oscillators and then linking them randomly. Sounded similar, looked like this (except there were more of them).

    DIY ring oscillators

    I fancy that these tracks were generated using old school ring modulators that look like this…

    Conrad Schnitzler & friend

    BTW, that’s  Conrad Schnitzler (from Kluster / Cluster) and he sounds like this…

    I included tracks from two bands I saw at SXSW with Kosmische tendencies Lower Dens and The Men. The Men track is quite unlike their guitar shredding live set, whilst the Lower Dens sounded pretty similar live.

    Lower Dens

    Which reminds me, I have a day and a half of SXSW left to document. Next blog posting I promise…

    Finally, here’s some Faust (because I can )
