UFO Cards by Piper Gates

I recently took delivery of these fantastic looking UFO cards from Piper Gates Design.
For those of you who might not have encountered Piper Gates Design before, as it says on their blog, they are Retro Graphic Specialists. To wet your whistle how about The Byrds Colouring book or The Bradley Wiggins Mod Paper Doll maybe alternative book covers for Gregory's Girl. How about a poster for the film Control if it had been released in 1958. 
I do very much like the work produced be Piper Gates. Inspiration seems to come from old Penguin publications Jan Tshichold, Look-in and Jackie Magazines. All the designs/sets seem to be  limited runs so if you see something you like, you better move fast. I did notice that there is a selection of designs on ebay.

The Alchemists of Sound BBC Doc

In this 2003 BBC doc on the Radiophonic workshop, The Alchemists of Sound. Anecdotes,  tape loops and clunky equipment abound. This wonderful doc is definitely worth watching. Its in 6 parts on Maldoror42's channel on YouTube. Thats my Saturday night taken care of.

DJ Set (playing some records in slapdash way)

Yet again I will be heading into Southsea to play some records in a very slapdash haphazard and casual way. At The King Street Tavern Southsea on Sunday Nov 11th.
