Fraserhead here. Four years behind the times as usual because I’ve only just found out about the phenomenon of the vocal fry register and how it is terrible for young women in the USA to practice it (but it’s okay for men to do so).

The Show: Now, that’s what we call a stereo

Now, that really is a soundsystem to be proud of. The Dewaele brothers and James Murphy wanted to get back to basics and build a proper disco set up. Add some McIntosh amps to some nice cabinets and drivers, sprinkle them round the edge of a dancefloor and, hey presto, a classy soundsystem!!! We will build our own this weekend. Details over at The Vinyl Factory.
