    “AAAARRGGGHHHH”. There you are, just for you. I’m actually listening to Move Of Ten (Part 1) as I read this. I’ll be playing something from Part 2 in my show next week, as I think this new double 12″ set by Autechre is marvellous.

    I was going to ask you when the new Laura Cantrell LP is out, but maybe it’s not an LP but just a one off tune?

    I dedicated that Autechre track to you actually as I knew you’d be playing some of it – the Laura LP is supposed to be out sometime this year but I don’t know if this track or the one I played last week will be on it. They’re froM this ace website I found where american alt country typeS put up their new songs for free. There’s a version of Thitreen by Beth Orton and Samamidon on there that you might be intrested it.

    Working on it Rob,mate – but as it’s just taken me three and a half hours to retrieve a picture off my phone, technology’s not my strong point. Give me your address and I’ll come round and whistle all the tunes for you!
