Ah yes, so it does - I'm sure it said 16th last night, although I was pretty tired yesterday! :P

Oh, btw, on the subject of Ed, there was an article about him in last month's "The Word" magazine - I've ordered a back issue. :)

Pics from today's NoiseLab workshop. It's a shame Graham ran out of time cos the story of his musical journey was very interesting. Luckily, he managed to get to 808state before his hour was up.

Obviously, there's a limit to the variety of pictures you can take of a bloke standing talking so here are the ones I've taken.

He showed us how to create an acid track with a TR909 and an SH101.

It was great to meet PeteZarustica and Gillian and I'm only sorry the trains weren't running or I'd have stayed for a few more pints!

Have you spotted the web site on his laptop?
