Farewell to ARP Instruments founder Alan R. Pearlman who has died aged 93. Along with Bob Moog and Don Buchla, Pearlman was at the forefront of US synthesizer design in the 1960s and ’70s. The company’s first instrument in the 1970’s was the ARP 2500 modular synth which was followed by the commercially successful ARP 2600 semi-modular synthesizer in 1971 and the legendary ARP Odyssey in 1972. If you want to hear the 2600 in action have a listen to Herbie Hancock’s “Headhunters” or Weather Report’s “Black Market.” Don’t forget the astonishing “Res” by Underworld..... Or head straight over to the clip of Edgar Winter performing “Frankenstein” on the Old Grey Whistle test. That’s rock n roll…

The musical Tour de Force that is Youth has started off his “Cosmic Odyssey” number 18 with “The Ghosts of Electricity” from our Wow and Flutter album which is great stuff.

I’m not doing the ironing. There’s an Oberheim OBX under there….
