Listen Again at the BPM.

If you’ve not heard it yet the very first Podcast from the brilliant Jon Brook’s Cafe Kaput can be downloaded here. Jon’s playing the very best psych, soundtrack, electronics and library music. Highlights for me included Hot Butter’s Slag Solution and Telltale’s theme from Rainbow in all its full length glory.

Another radio treat you might have missed  was Moon Wiring Club’s guest appearance on Jonny Trunk’ OST on Resonance. Lots of fun and laughs as usual plus Catweazle, Mike Reid, Ace of Wands, and bad DIY advice. That one’s here.

Belbury Youth Cub Night

Tickets are now on sale for the Belbury Youth Club Night on Sunday 28th March in Birmingham’s Vivid. You can get tickets and details here  (there’ll also be a limited number of tickets on the door). Starting at 5:00pm there’ll be some unsettling  TV drama, new animations from Julian House, Public Informations Films, and a new version of the short film Winter Sun Wavelength with  a new Focus Group and Belbury Poly soundtrack. Then from around 8:00 in the evening we’ll have music from  the Ghost Box DJs and special live guest Moon Wiring Club.

Normally the busiest day of the week for me of course, but widening the Belbury spiritual community is vitaly important work. Join us. (parishioners note: there will be no Evensong on the 28th)

The Advisory Circle on The Freak Zone – 7th March

My apologies ! It seems that The Advisory Circle will be guesting on the Freakzone on BBC6 on Sunday 7th March (not feb 28th as previuosly announced). Everything else in the previous post still holds true. Probably.

The Advisory Circle on The Freak Zone

Special guest on Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone this Sunday is Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle (and verger to the parish).  That’s BBC6 Music Sunday 28th 5:30 pm or all next week on Listen Again.

Jon pre-recorded the show on Wednesday and by all accounts had a splendid time, amongst tracks from the new album they’ll be playing an exclusive Advisory Circle track you won’t hear anywhere else.

Talking of JB there’s an excellent piece all about musical arrangement on his blog Cafe Kaput which will be of great interest to all you composers and songwriters.

Oh .. and talking of BBC6 I’d urge all of you Facebookers to join the save BBC6 Music group. A truly great cause and well worth a little click to register your support.


Boring Ghost Box Google Glitch News

Ghost Box is not currently listed in searches under Google. If you visit the website this way rest assured that things are up and running as usual, and you’ll still find the site over at:

It seems likely that by pure bad luck we were indexed on the very day the site went down last month. We’re doing all we can to get this fixed, so meanwhile don’t be fooled into buying any dodgy spook hunting hardware.

no official exisitence

Far more interesting news from Jon Brooks of the Advisory Circle. He’ll be giving the us the benefit of his wisdom on all sorts of subjects at his new blog, Cafe Kaput.

Belbury Youth Club Night comes to Birmingham

The next Belbury Youth Club Night will be held at Vivid in Birmingham on Sunday 28th March as part of the Flatpack festival.

Then at around 8 o’clock it’ll be shoes off and chairs away for a live performance from our special guest Moon Wiring Club,  followed by music, movement and more films from the Ghost Box DJs.
5pm until late, £7.00. Tickets will be available from flatpack at the end of February

Mind How You Go (Revised Edition) – available for pre-order now

If you pre-order the vinyl LP you’ll get a free download version of the album, (which you’ll be able to get a couple of days before the release date). You can listen to some audio clips here .

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
