A great night. A 'workstation' with various gadgetry which Graham played two improvised jams from. During the Q&A, the highlight being 'Cobra Bora' being broken down into its component parts with a description of what kit was used to create that particular sample.

A good insight into the perils and unreliability of past music technology and editing when 808 started, compared with the ease of today, along with an in-depth bio of where it all began Pre-Newbuild.
