shows // GK Machine's Synthetic Soul Show
And welcome to the Synthetic Soul Show.
Here me and my robot friends hope to find a second home in your earholes for the 5000+ records lying around at GKHQ that we've been collecting for almost 30 years.
We play as many cutting edge sounds as we can afford to buy, mostly on vinyl but occasionally on CD, mixed with electronica from the 60s right through to the present, new wave, post punk, dub, experimental, avantgarde, psych, electro-disco and occasional contra-pop sing-a-longs......with a preference towards the more synthetic side of production.
Some of it may be uneasy listening but hey, that's what it's all about.
hoga nord rekords special
Today's show will focus on new experimental/psyche/acid label Hoga Nord from Gothenburg, Sweden who've released a series of amazing and highly original 33rpm 7"s to date with their first LP album release just this week. Expect to hear the sound of Robert Leiner, Tross, Pistol Disco, Les Big Byrd and ex-Spacemen 3...Pete Bassman.

nash the slash r.i.p.
So I just heard that one of the world's most original and innovative creators has passed away, no cause of death given by family. His name was Nash The Slash....or Jeff Plewman to family and friends.
This show is dedicated to the bandaged man and his music.
I hope to play a good fair few of his tunes throughout the show.
Tune in....or forever tune out
