The Twelve Hour Foundation - Macaroni Cheese

7" single / download

There's something particularly fun about waking up on a Sunday morning, stumbling blearily onto your social media of choice and finding a friends post that immediately makes the day more fun.  It could be a status post, a vid, a comment or (my particular favourite) some music.

Today, thanks to tape loopers extraordinaire Howlround's Robin the Fog I was introduced to a fab slice of radiophonic whimsy by Bristol's The Twelve Hour Foundation called 'Macaroni Cheese'.

This duo of synthesists Polly Hulse (analogue synth / rhythms) and Jez Butler (analogue synth / concrète sequences) have produced 3 tracks crying out to be the theme tunes of 1970s science 'programmes for schools and colleges'.   The 3 tunes are joyful excursions into late 70s synthesizer era BBC Radiophonic Workshop which, due to my particular love of Paddy Kingsland's music, means this is all right up my particular street.  

Available as download or (and this is the one I oped for) 7" single with download.
