Edinburgh Man #179

September 27th, 2014

Cassette Store Day! What’s that all about then? I’m not entirely sure but I seem to have finished the day having bought more cassettes that I had done in the previous year. It’s a special outside broadcast podcast as the Edinburgh Man family make the trek from the south west of Edinburgh to Stockbridge in the north to purchase some crazy limited cassettes from Vox Box Records.

Experimental recording techniques, lo-fi audio, and “found sounds” ahoy in this show. Featuring guest appearances by Darren from Vox Box and, who knows, maybe even Edinburgh Man Junior.

A friend of mine used this phrase on his Facebook page recently and I’m going to shamelessly appropriate it – I’ve reached a feeling of Zen with regards to Thursday’s Scottish independence referendum. I’ve got friends on both sides of the debate, as I’m sure most of us in Scotland have, and most of them seem to have the best interests of the country at heart. The most incredible thing is to have witnessed a country galvanised by political debate. Even if just a fraction of that endures after Thursday it’ll be a hell of a legacy.

Podcast-wise, everything is thrown into disarray this week after my MacBook died, so today’s playlist is basically what I was able to transfer onto my iPad without the “power” of iTunes. Thankfully no U2 album is included.

Oh hello. It’s another slightly randomly scheduled podcast. I write this sitting in the garden as Edinburgh Man Junior runs around the vegetable beds. Don’t worry though, he’s not in this indie-pop biased edition of the show – I recorded it over lunchtime this afternoon as I was working from home. Well I was supposed to be working from home, but after finishing it I decided I needed some caffeine and spent the rest of the day in Artisan Roast.

Anyway, I said I wouldn’t talk politics this week and I just went and did just that. Many apologies. Don’t worry, it will all be over by this time next week.

What’s with the milk bottles I hear you cry. I’ve been making milk. From nuts! It’s crazy, I know. I never knew such a thing was even possible, and now I’m addicted to it. I guess it’s the same part of me that likes making beer or wine or bread or any number of things that are easier and cheaper to get from a shop. Cashew is my current favourite. That and almond. Don’t try sunflower though. That’s bogging.

Anyway, on today’s show I talk politics. Apologies. If you read my blog post last week about how I’m voting ‘yes’ in the upcoming Scottish independence referendum you probably thought this was coming. If the blog post was well thought out, then this is the opposite. It’s rambling nonsense. Please don’t base your vote on anything that I say – research this yourself. If you are in Scotland then it’s probably the single most important vote you’ll ever cast – make sure you are absolutely right in your mind not just about the way you are voting, but that you are doing so for the right reasons. Not out of fear for the alternative, but out of hope for the way forward.
