david cain (radiophonic workshop) - The Seasons (from the BBC Radio Schools Series 'Drama Workshop')

Trunk Records have just made our week with this grade A+ reissue of David Cain's cult radiophonic themes for school drama classes, originally made in 1969. These seventeen disturbingly evocative themes were intended to aid those golden hours once a week when UK kids in the first and second years of secondary school (11-13 year olds) were made to participate in improvised drama and dance. It's a while since we were in plimsolls and vest (yeah, we always forgot our kit), but we'd definitely imagine that drama class nowadays doesn't feature a soundtrack of darkly austere poems set to adventurous electronica. Unless you own a copy (they go for a few hundred bar on discogs), or have an incredible memory, it's unlikely you'd remember Ronald Duncan's "powerful" verses such as "when winter whips, the gaunt elm shudders in the groin of grief" or "an old labernum stand beside a wall, its colour flows, its colour falls, as though muscular hands were milking it, into the pale of night". But hearing them now, set to Cain's dippy synth themes ranging frothy nonchalance to wet playtime darkness, the memories of cold parquet flooring and warm cabbage and custard from the canteen are flooding back. Hand on heart, this is just an unmissable LP.
