Boomkat Product Review:
Classic British eccentric and electronics whizz Captain Maurice Seddon is subject of this remarkable collection of recordings, posthumously salvaged from tapes found strewn around his house in Datchet, directly beneath the flight path to Heathrow.
A real treat for voyeurs and listeners who appreciate an extremely plummy British accent prone to regularly slip into German, The Seddon Tapes Vol. 1 features 12 excepts from Seddon’s taped telephone recordings, which would be received and dealt with on a homebuilt system controlled by pedals which brilliantly enough only allowed one person to speak at a time - if they were quick enough to get a word in between Seddon’s stories about school at Gordonstoun, his homemade heated clothing, or his pack of dogs.
It’s almost worth the entry alone just to hear the Captain firmly tell an American TV fixer from The Tonight Show that he needs more money to appear on their programme, but also for amazing 8-page booklet of extensive, in-depth descriptions of Seddon’s home and history by the record’s producers, Clive Graham and William English.
