a strange concoction of spoken word & analogue sound that draws from popular culture to describe a hypothetical time barren of authority.

this is the collaborative reactions of Adrian Flannagan (Kings Have Long Arms), actress Maxine Peake (‘Shameless’ / ‘Silk’) and Dean Hohner (I Monster) - under the umbrella moniker The Eccentronic Research Council - take their collective experiences in theatre, music technology, television, pop cultural archiving and radio to reimagine a time and place where the unified working classes and alternative thinkers are mocked and persecuted at the hands of a flawed and paranoid government and monarchy. Stylistically, The ERC opt for a vast array of mechanical music machines and synthesised effects to create this conceptual nonpopulist pop remaining faithful to a pre-digital and unpredictable era taking cues from Mort Garson, Suzanne Ciani, Sorel Hayes, Joe Meek, Daphne Oram, JP Massiera and Delia Derbyshire amongst others.
