ROLLO JACKSON - Tape Crackers: An Oral History of Jungle Pirate Radio, ROLLO JACKSON
*'Tape Crackers' is a vital documentary focussed on one guy, Michael Finch, and his amazing tape collection of pirate radio recordings made in the mid-late '90s. The premise is basic: place Michael and some of his most prized c90s in front of the camera and let the man talk. The result: a punters'-ear recollection of an amazing period in UK music culture, charting the shifts between Happy Hardcore/Jungle/D&B/Garage, or what has contentiously become known as the 'Hardcore Continuum' thanks to Simon Reynolds. Michael is a passionate and thoroughly endea… Read more

"It's simple. I broke out and broke back to my earlier days: A triangle of risk, improvisation and joy -- as I say, very simple. My rules to myself were: No plan, no notes, no ideas, no microphones; except for Jane 1 I stuck to it. My other rule -- the most important one -- was: At least one piece per day, finished, mixed and not to be revisited again. Jane 7, 8, 9 were done in one day... Brad Ellis was my guide through this: An untiring day, ready to go again... To quote a letter to me from Mark Tobey: ... "It fell off the edge of my brush."" -- Harold Budd
