40,000 years old, Podcast #113 (Dec 2014)

Like you, I'm anxious to check out new music - to grab hold of the new releases, the latest sounds, the platters that matter (er, matters). If a renowned producer has just "dropped" a new mix, then I'm ON IT! (Curious how these big-name producers are always dropping things. Bloody butterfingers).

No, there's nothing I like better than the whiter-than-white label (the transparent label?). Getting the new stuff is the bedroom computer music fan's equivalent of those acetates and specials beloved of the Jamaican soundsystems in the 60s - hey, this is hot, and you lot don't even know what it is. Ha ha ha.

But, hey. There's also old stuff. Brilliant music from that long-ago time fondly know as pre-digital. Music that ... gulp, predates the Beatles, that's older than Elvis, that makes Louis Armstrong seem fresh and modern. Yeah yeah, OK. You've probably got all that. Checked it out and moved on. No, what you need is even older stuff. Really ancient sounds that are ... oh, about 40,000 years old ...
