Herbie Hancock built a time machine




There's a rumour floating around that Herbie Hancock re-arranged the components of a Fairlight to build himself a time machine (he's that clever) and travelled forwards through time to steal musical ideas, then went back to the 70s and blew people's minds.

I'm not sure if that'e based entirely on fact, but one thing is certain: he was responsible for more inovations in electronic music than he's given credit for. Listen to Future Shock and Magic Windows if you don't believe me.

The following is taken from 'Magic Windows'. Have a listen, then consider it was produced in 1981.

Mind: blown.

WELCOME......

to WHEEL ME OUT!!

You're here because you should probably be doing something else. We want to make your procrastination more entertaining and at the same time make you feel guilty for not being more productive.

I always take a break at the first signs of an achievment, as if I've finally found what I was looking for and want to solidify the moment with a cup of tea and a biscuit. In reality it means I've got loads of half-baked ideas and too many empty mugs near my computer.

Take a page out of my book: waste the rest of the day making toast and chasing the tail of that ultimate record that's got to be on one of these stupid blogs. Not everything posted on here is strictly for the dance-floor, hopefully we can stick to delivering something more cerebral than the usual blog-fodder.

So comment, subscribe, send us junk. We love all of it.

Or just lurk, that's fine too.
