It seems the legends are true – there really was LSD added to vintage synths. A Bay Area, California Buchla 100 reportedly triggered an acid trip decades later. The equipment in question is a Buchla Model 100, 1960s vintage – the modular that defined what now some people call the “West Coast synthesis” style. I learned on one of these, too, though don’t recall any particular hallucinations. The report comes from a local CBS television affiliate in San Francisco, KPIX, and their broadcast o...

The Stylophone goes totally luxe with the GEN R-8

You’ve seen the Stylophone as the mass-produced, toy-like original. And you’ve seen it as a relaunched digital emulation and as an analog instrument. Now get ready for the Stylophone as premium boutique instrument. The Stylophone began its story back in 1967, and became one of the iconic electronic musical inventions of the 20th century – its appeal being largely to do with its simplicity and directness.

BOXSET REVIEW: THE CREATION, “Action Painting”

You have to give me a little latitude here to rhapsodize about The Creation; my love for them spans more than 30 years, since I first discovered and heard the 1982 compilation How Does It Feel To Feel?.  My first band used to cover them; we actually made up our own Creation t-shirts and always tried to preach the gospel about this wonderful band who we were so smitten and influenced by.  They were a bit rougher; in some ways more powerful than The Who and they had this incredible sense of dang...
