The Holy Grail

5th May 2010

Circles and cycles today. Over the bridge to Brittania Row, where Pink Floyd recorded The Wall, to view the holy grail, of some sort anyhow, a vintage Neve desk that I just had to shoot. Two channels would do me but still, this is like a petrol head looking at a red Ferrari with plenty of extra horses of power and more dials and stuff. This is super-tech-beauty for music people.

Then a trek up north to Rough Trade to track down a copy of the new Flying Lotus album. First I tried HMV at Fulham Broadway. I asked the dude with the dyed jet hair rearranging the AC/DC promotion. He told me, yes they had a copy in but somebody bought it and now they were sold out. And there was me thinking it was a big release. It shows how specialist and rarified our musical taste is.

Still at RT it was a suitably big deal and I managed to have a suitably geeky conversation with the counter girl about it’s richness of sound and depth and quality. Just like a record shop should be then. And they just happened to be playing some Pink Floyd too, Flaming Lips’ re-version of Dark Side Of The Moon, so I bought that too, because it just seemed like the right thing to do. Circles and cycles. Wheels turning.
