Pelican read of the week – Changing Man’s Behaviour by H.R. Beech With my purchases of Pelicans, the cover and content have to stand out. This one looks interesting in both respects. The cover art is by Ian McLaren, there is a great article on him here https://www.grafik.net/category/feature/ripe-plums I’m interested in the reasons behind our behaviour, how we are reluctant to look at our natural urges and instincts because they might raise difficult questions, how they are controlled for acceptance and to ensure society comfortably sleepwalks. They might reveal answers that aren’t easy to deal with…

Pelican read of the week – Political Ideas by David Thomson
This cover really messes with your eyes. I’m up to chapter 3 so far, and already this is an interesting read. A lucid collection of short pieces on politics, it is a good introduction to political beliefs, motives and reasoning.
Airwaves – Alan Parker
Funky space synth. Beautiful artwork. Picked up from Fargo Record Fair last weekend in Coventry.
Finally found the strings I’ve been searching for. Warm sound.
My new Sielorchestra, lush strings, etchasketch type, pop colour buttons and switches.
Our Yamaha CS30. A complicated mono soul with lots of sound shapes to be struck.
