Delia’s Theme

Today HMI arrive for a random single subject inspection. We shall repulse them with the quality of our provision, our tracking system and progress measuring and work sampling, our short, medium and long term plans, our intention to always strive to be outstanding. If that fails maybe I’ll distract them with Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Delia’s Theme

Meanwhile back at the underground studio/bunker complex, if you’re into Astrolab Recordings and their chuggy chuggy sound (featuring Mr Weatherall, Mr Fairplay, Mr Avery, Mr Fraser, Mr Robertson and his Deadstock 33s and Mr Mugwump amongst others) then this compilation looks right up your alley.

  1. Head 'em off at the pass with Red Bush and Jaffa Cakes. And if the random single subject is Year 11 Underwater Basketweaving (Foundation), then fear not, the Egon Ronay-type inspector is a pussycat. Just keep Chivers the delinquent from 10C fastened to the climbing frame and away from the corridors.

  2. Best of British luck!As for Delia, having developed something of a slightly scary fanboy thing for all things radiophonic in the least few years I can wholeheartedly recommend the documentary 'Alchemists of sound' from BBC4 a couple of years ago. Watch this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B7hAT1BbGY Also find and download 'Dance from Noah' -quite truly incredible.

  3. Thanks chaps. Mr AN- once HMI Ofpiss I'll have a look for those.
