Wonderful tracks off my fave comp of the year: the “A Man & A Machine III” v/a 2cd (le Son du Maquis cat no. 214, rel. 2011-09-08). I could have picked any track, really, as the third volume is the best yet in the series. (Apparently it’s won a Qwartz award for best electronics compilations. Don’t think Qwartz or Maquis will win prizes for keeping their sites up to date, though.) Highlights:
- “News” by Moebius & Plank (Sky 1980)
- “Tight as a drum” by Thomas Leer (Cherry Red 1982)
- “Feuerland” by Michael Rother (Sky 1977)
- “Arp’s carpet” by Dark Day (Infidelity 1980).
