PMB022 Stylophonic: Jerry Allen, Hong Kong in the 60s, Yakuza Heart Attack, Brett Domino, Soulless Party, The Brooklyn Organ Synthesizer Orchestra

We believe in being guided by cosmic forces here at the Moonbase so we coudn't possibly ignore the arrival in the airlock this week of *two* new releases featuring that king of keyboard instruments, the Stylophone. For not only does the long-awaited debut by the Brett Domino Trio dedicate a whole medley to this instrument, but an epically analogue re-interpretation of Tubular Bells also features the instrument prominently.

The show is a rather eclectically electronic one this week, with more from the debut album by Hong Kong in the 60s, a track from a new release by listener Soulless Party and a deliciously fresh slice of chip-prog from Yakuza Heart Attack.

This week MC Zirconium also believes that ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habits, to have new little hopes. It's rather hard work...

AWESOME! Great podcast. Good to see bands from Dayton getting a mention. Our music scene is tops.

Thanks for that. Glad you're enjoying the show. Dayton certainly seems to be a hot spot for chip prog.
