    It’s a real honour to share this podcast with you, created by Neuropolitique (Matt Cogger) for Irdial Discs' Monster Music radio shows in 1992. I had this mix on cassette and have lovingly held onto it ever since. To think that it’s 21 years since this was first broadcast - and the music on here still floors me.
    Irdial Discs were a huge inspiration to me and i know many others who felt the same. They played by their own rules, followed no one and forged a path that left me speechless. If you want to know how to run a “real” record label then go and investigate just what they achieved, from records to books, software to radio shows. There was an attitude too that is so lacking these days, statements of intent. “In Your Hearts Not The Charts...”....”We Suffer To Bring You Beautiful Music..”..
    When I read this, it felt like a call to arms and I knew whose banner I wanted to stand by. I always said to myself if we can get to be a tenth as good as them then I would be happy.

    *******************

    Back in 1992 when a pint of lager would have cost you £1.44, Akin Fernandez asked me to put together a 'mixtape' in the Saturday Night Jam style of such radio stations as WBMX and WJLB.
    Having already made one a couple of years previously (unfortunately not broadcast due to the inclusion of a certain Sensuous Black Woman Goes Disco) I jumped at the chance.
    Akin set me up one afternoon in his King's Road studio with a rather nice reel-to-reel recorder, a top collection of vinyl and I seem to remember a marijuana dispensation for the room.
    Hope you enjoy.
