A 7 inch Tape Find

On a recent run into Brighton I popped into my favorite place to have a rummage, Snoopers Paradise, and as usual was not dissapointed. Lurking around on the floor was a pile of these old 7 inch EMITAPES. They were being sold for the very good price of £1 (one was in fact £2) so not being a greedy chap I only bought the one. My next task is to track down my friend Mr Packer who has a couple of old Tascam and Fostex tape players, and then find out what is on this tape. I will report back here when I know more.

Dolls at Play

There are so many images like this one on tumblr - the fact they are gifs makes them even more unsettling.

We are an odd bunch

A rather nice find in a real dusty old book shop. Had to buy it, but not as cheap as I would have liked. So had to put a few other things back.

Project Club part 2

Way back in Feb 2011 I posted The Project Club Project Manual on Found Objects. I did have every intention of posting more pages from this book onto Found Objects........but......I forgot. Life got in the way and I got side tracked yet again. So finally 21 months later, here are some more pages from the wonderful world of The Project Club Project Manual. Staring at my congested shelfs, I think the build a record library page def struck a chord with me all those years ago.

Happy Halloween!

Plates from Hamlyn's 'Echoes of Terror', an anthology of the usual suspects but enlivened by some rather fabulous illustrations, including a very motivated-looking Denholm Elliott / Dracula crossover. Lots more here.

Barrie's Album

This album used to belong to a man called Barrie. More here.

RadiO TEST #1

Some of you may like to know that a new Radio Station of "Experimental Otherness Audio", with no overt presenter and in the form of a compilation, has just been inaugurated. It appears to be a post-structuralist gambit; whether it is inherently hauntological is for the individual to decide, but I sense it will appeal to a certain branch of FO cognoscenti, as it has tons of theoretical coherence. One may listen to or download the first transmission here.

Adventures of the Soul

UK residents and maybe others have six days left to listen to the BBC Radio 3 ghost drama 'Adventures of the Soul', that features original EVP recordings by researcher Raymond Cass. Haven't heard this yet but looks like it may be good. Here.

The Restless Bones
& Other True Mysteries
by Peter Haining

(Armada, year unknown)

(I just posted this on my own blog, but it occurred to me that Found Objects partisans might enjoy it too, so, here you go..)

Cover illustration: Alun Hood
Interior illustrations: Ellis Nadler

Assorted tales of strange and unlikely goings-on, written in simple words and big type, guaranteed to put a rocket under the imagination of any young mind. Do kids these days still read books like this? I hope so.

I suppose parents & teachers might frown upon Haining’s insistence that the tall tales herein are all 100% factual, but his introduction, in which he thanks readers of his previous books for alerting him to new ‘mysteries’ worthy of investigation, is certainly pretty charming.

My favourite story is the none-more-hauntological yarn about an RAF pilot stationed at Mildenhall in Norfolk, who apparently discovers whistling East Anglian ghost ‘Old Roger’ doing his bit to help repel the Luftwaffe. Top stuff!

Here is the only copy of Science Fiction Monthly I ever had. Issue 2 had film reveiws of The Final Program, Westworld and SolarisIt also contains some breaking news relating to  Michael Moorcock releasing a single.

The 1612 Underture

Read about this album The 1612 Underture (Its about the Pendle Witches) by The Eccentronic Research Council and Maxine Peake  in The Guardian, a few weeks ago. Liked what I read and went out and got a copy. Have been playing it almost non stop for 2 weeks. Its a fantastic album and def one of my albums of the year. More pics and info here. Almost forgot to say, its out on the ever wonderful Finders Keepers/Bird label. Also I never knew there was an A666???? How about that.

Information TV!

This week is Information TV week with Ninetyeightytwo.

For the uninitiated, Information TV is nothing short of the pinnacle of human endeavour.

I will, of course, be accepting guest posts.

I will accept posts on the following topics:

1. Information TV & Me – Tell me just what makes Information TV so special for you.

2. Do You Remember The First Time? - Tell me about how you initially discovered Information TV!

3. Pick Of The Litter
– Tell me about your favourite Information TV show!

4. Information TV Guilty Pleasures
– Come on, guys! Everybody has one.

5. Information TV Desired Programming – Basically, if you were employed as head commissioner for Information TV (a dream job if ever there was one!), what sort of quality programming would you commission?

It all promises to be rather a lot of fun. In fact, this is the best thing to happen to the blogosphere since they had Zardoz Week on Mounds & Circles.

All that remains is to wish you a happy Information TV Week, and I hope you can join me!

Stonehenge??????? I Don't Think So

I was having a rummage through some old comics/magazines recently, and came across a copy of Demon from 1978. Demon was published by Portman Distribution, who basically would reprint  stories from Marvel Horror Magazines, Hence Morbius and Satana featuring a lot. This strange depiction of Stonehenge comes from a story featuring Gabrial...... Devil Hunter. Now I have not been to Stonehenge for a few years, but I am sure the mighty trilithons never really looked like this. Stonehenge??????? I Don't Think So.

My Curious Tea Party

Folk-art which seems right. There's some (accidentally) creepy stuff in here... dig around.

Possible phenomena at Black Meadow site - 1972 (?)

Taken from an investigation in to the Black Meadow (North Yorkshire Moors) around 1972..

In case anyone's interested, I found the lost Gods. They're living in an Oxfam in Guildford.
