21/5/2012 ‘Kaleidoscope’ tracklist

Despite not having my beloved vinyl collection here in the Czech Republic, narrowing the number of tracks down to an amount which would fit the confines of a 60-minute show proved difficult.  As well as the expected proliferation of blues amongst my cds, there was also a fair scattering of reds, greens, and pinks. Surprisingly, given my indecisive nature, I still have some fingernails left….
Finally, the tracks on the sonic palette were the following:

1)ARTWORK – RED /from ‘The Roots of Dubstep’/ Tempa 2006

A fairly diverse selection, though heavy with sounds from the late 70’s and early 80’s – a sonic purple patch!
Thanks are due this time to Kevin L. Guthrie/Altres and Robin Amos/Cul de Sac, whose kind help is much-appreciated. Already immersing myself in the sounds for next week’s musical safari as I bring this to a close. Wishing anyone perusing this many a sonic gem – S.
