Links to those we love
Have a gander at these WT-approved sites. You've got some time, doncha?
Learn to Swim - Tons of free, downloadable gems. A must for fans of Radiophonic Workshop, Ghost Box, electronica, etc. Also featuring the entire recorded output of pre-Hank Cab Williamson project Cab Williamson's Waxworks. But best to avoid that and concentrate on the rest of the site, wethinks.
Thanks to Michael Corrin for writing some code for this page. Otherwise, it would be an incoherent jumbled mess. What's that you say?
Why Are You Smiling?
So many people are sitting around me, I will lay myself right down enveloped in body warmth. I look around, I see your smiling faces looking at me. My sister holds out her hand.
She says, “Let’s go and jump on the trampolene, we can bounce up and down.”
We can bounce up and down.
We take our shoes off and run to the back yard, climb on up to begin.
And when we’re bold we increase in size, when we are open, we will be wise. The smiles on our faces are our disguise.
In the inner reaches of outer space we are never home .

Jeremy Singer prepares dictaphone compilation
Over the last few years, Hank frontman Jeremy Singer has recorded hundreds of hours of dictaphone recordings: sketches, improvisations, personal musings and ansamachine messages. These initmate analogue excerpts are now in the process of being handpicked for the upcoming Cab Williamson presents 'Dictabeat, volumes 1-9', one day, probably in many years, to be available via mail order. There will be a strictly limited edition of 3 containing all nine dictaphone tapes and a dictaphone to play them on (batteries included). This is a rare instance where the limitations of cheap audio recording work in favour of the material. All the recordings are hissy and in mono and sound like ghostly echoes of memory. Perfect for your early morning gym workout, what?
