Space Brother, host of KillRadio.org's Radio Mysterioso, hepped me to some amazing stuff recently, such as the music of legendary UK eccentric Desmond Leslie. Leslie's bio includes such as highlights as being a RAF fighter pilot, punching out a film critic in front of millions on TV for dissing his wife, co-authoring one the first books about UFOs, living in Castle Leslie, and creating electronic/tape music in the 1950s. This music was never widely released, but a recent CD entitled "Music Of The Future" compiles his bizarre, fascinating Space Age sounds. Some were allegedly recorded for a film called "The Day The Sky Fell In," some from a collection called "Music From The Voids Of Outer Space."
Desmond Leslie: "Play In/Mercury, Fleet Messenger of The Gods" - Quothe Leslie, "My MUSIQUE CONCRETE is meant to be enjoyed."
I could not find any info whatsover on this Space Age rock/Latin oddity, but it's a, er, blast:
Sam Space and the Cadettes: "Take Me To Your Leader Cha Cha"
Big astro-thanks to Space Brother!
