Posted on Apr 18th, 2012 by Mr Goldbar

The latest item to hit the Fool’s Gold webstore (and our retail headquarters on 536 Metropolitan Ave in BK) is a special edition book / 7″ vinyl combo package of author Dave Tompkins’ How To Wreck A Nice Beach. Grab it now!

This respected music journalist and bugged out prose purveyor spent years tracing the history of electronic voices from World War II laboratories to 80s synth music to cell phones. With interview subjects ranging from Ramellzee to T-Pain (and of course our own P-Thugg dropping vocoder science), this fascinating, lovingly researched and entertainingly written book is a must. The expanded softcover edition comes complete with a bonus color vinyl 7″ single of vocoder jams from Dave’s personal collection.

If you’re in NYC this weekend, see Dave talk 808s and no-wave at the Unsound Festival. Read More

But that’s how Mehdi, ever the raconteur, like his stories: starting “ab ovo” (from the very beginning, the origins) and rife with trivia. So here it is, my own personal Mehdipedia entry… Read More
