The Show: R.I.P. It Up & Start Again

In our last minute rush to celebrate the lives of Cathal Coughlan and Andrew Fletcher we completely overlooked including a musical eulogy to Vangelis. If we had time for a do-over, extracts from the Bladerunner soundtrack would be sitting alongside tunes from Microdisney, Telefís and Depeche Mode.

The Show: Over 40 Years Of Sleng Teng

And it only seems like yesterday we were busting out our Casiotone’s and aping Wayne Smith’s 1985 classic. The hard work had pretty much been done 3 or 4 years earlier when one of Okuda Hiroko’s preset rhythm patterns ( called “Rock”, would you believe?) was included on the MT-40 keyboard.

For an oral history of Sleng Teng have a listen to The Blessed Madonna on BBC Radio 6 and we salute the rhythm by including Shinehead’s “Know How Fe Chat” on today’s show…
