shows // GK Machine's Synthetic Soul Show

alternative // electronic // experimental // progressive // newwave

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.


special!!! "guess who?" cover versions competition

GK Machine's Synthetic Soul Show // 19.08.14 // 75. The Big Competition 2014

Happening for the second time on Subcity, after meeting with rapturous delight first time around in 2012, I return to the airwaves with beautiful, beautiful, ugly prizes which YOU can win if you guess the artist of the song, the artist of the original song AND, of course, the title!!!

The music may be weirder than usual but HELL, it'll be fun!! :)

nash the slash r.i.p.

GK Machine's Synthetic Soul Show // 13.05.14 // 63. Nash The Slash

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
