Radiophonic Workshop’s John Baker Subject Of New Compilation

JBtriptychAs you may or may not know, the reason things have been a little quieter on the site for the last year is because I’ve been working on a book about the Radiophonic Workshop for Obverse Books. We all know about Delia Derbyshire and probably Brian Hodgson and Daphne Oram too but another genius of the early years was John Baker, the subject of a new compilation “The Vendetta Tapes” coming soon on Buried Treasure. John had a classical background and played in jazz bands while at the Workshop, influences that often snuck into his electronic music. He never directly worked on Doctor Who although a couple of his pieces were reused in Cybermen story “The Invasion”.

Anyway, I could go on but you can buy the book if you want more info. As Buried Treasure sell via bandcamp you can have a listen yourself right now. “The Vendetta Tapes” is coming out on CD, vinyl and download.
