I borrowed the DVD of this 3 months ago from Brian and I've still not watched it. I keep meaning to and then I'm not in the mood for watching a film and before I know it I've wasted another 2 hours watching cats farting on youtube. I'm a massive fucking idiot sometimes....

This album is an essential buy for you electronic archivists! Spacey electronic noises galore... in fact that's pretty much all the album is but then remember it's from 1956 and suddenly this record becomes a load more important and interesting. Louis and Barron are clearly electronic music pioneers building eerie alien soundscapes and strange ghostly noises. They're creating alien worlds for you the listener to inhabit and now you can courtesy of this smart vinyl pressing on Poppydisc. In the early 50's Louis and Barron moved to New York where they hung around with the likes of John Cage, Stockhausen, Edgard Varese and other avant garde experimental composers and that influence is present on the record.

It's a quality sounding electronic album with liner notes by John Cavanagh & mastering by chief Teen Fannie, Norman Blake! Fans of all things bloopy and spacelike should check it out!

As a kid in the early 60's this film just blew me away. You just had to have a bad ass robot for a best friend.

At about 2 when I got my 1st tinplate Japanese robot the made sounds never heard outside of the television.

Later it was those strange Sci Fi noises I tried so hard making with anything in the house. Must have driven my Mom nuts looking for stuff from the kitchen only to find them in the backyard at 'Space Command HQ'.

OK, it's not exactly dinner music but for anyone who remembers all those early space flicks this just brilliant.
