Whereas Factor X was even bootlegged in recent years - always a mark of long lasting quality - Mystery Hearsay wasn't. No lesser quality however from this hometaper - as the lingo of the day was - also known as Mike Honeycutt. He went on to produce other things later on, such as Mystery X, Mystery Iguana, and part of Wilt, but Mystery Hearsay seemed to have gathered dust. This CD, in fact a re-issue of a tape release called 'Flesh Tomb' plus bonus material from a net release from 2007 (which is which is not clear from the cover). Without wanting to say much about the quality of the music, the quality of the recording is of an entirely nature than the Factor X one, i.e. something that seems at least more professional. One of those typical mid-80s things was the arrival of what was called 'ambient industrial': music that was too loud to fully downright ambient, but also not loud enough to be classified as industrial. Hence ambient industrial and that's exactly the field of Mystery Hearsay's music. Lots of guitar/synth manipulations, along with percussive, metallic sounds and tons of sound effects to manipulate them. Like with a lot of these 80s things its not the composition that counts but the mood created, so it sometimes gets off the rails and takes a bit too much time to be fully interesting. But this is another great reminder of the young FdW at home listening to tapes, and one who fully forgot that Mystery Hearsay was actually a great band. Long forgotten, but thankfully resurrected.
Thanks to a post on Echoes Blog, we have been informed of something quite interesting that I am not sure what to think about as I write this. In an article by the LA Times titled "A new age for New Age music", they are talking about a revival of the new age music genre / style. Arguably the best and worst thing to happen to electronic music genre. This isn't the case of mistaken association by the outsider journalist. The story is about new blood purposely paying homage to the likes of mantle piece new age artists like Enya, Paul Winter and Zamfir. Is this a good thing or bad thing? Share your thoughts on this interesting subject below.

Brian Eno first came across the work of in the late 90’s during the Map-Making project; a series of collaborative works between students of the Royal College, the Guildhall School of Music, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the National Youth Orchestra and the English National Ballet, among others.
The first time I was made aware of Mark Jenkins music and his massive museum worthy collection of synthesizers was in the February 2000 issue of Keyboard Magazine. They used to run a column called Workspace at the end of every issue during that period of time. Mark with his cheerful, reassuring smile was featured for the Workspace column that month. The article focused on the synths with a few small pictures of Mark with his analog and digital synthesizers including modular and hybrid ones. However that article failed to portray the depth and journey of an artist who had been then as is now active at his game for well over thirty years in the field of Electronic Music as well as Electronic Music magazines and sound design. Mark had been a guitarist for a few months before being turned onto the synth world after hearing Tangerine Dream on the John Peel Show for the first time. He recently gave Synth.me an interview and answered questions about his music life, synthesizers, the making of the World's first iPad album and some of his opinions on the modern day record label. Read on for what we hope is as a rewarding experience for you as we did talking with Mark Jenkins.
This month Kebu returns to us with a piece he wrote in 2008 as a tribute jean Michel Jarre. Only analog synthesizer were used in recording the tune.

Rudy Ensueno posted this great video from Vedomstvo of the Brian Eno lecture in Moscow 2011. Eno talks about the history of music and painting in the twentieth century and how the two came together.

Listen to two new album songs & see the individual artwork for each format by Brian Eno. 'Bless this Space' and 'Pour it Out' are now available with some comments about the visuals for these cuts: "Recently I was in Sao Paulo, the most city-ish city in the Western world. I took lots of pictures of the forest, and then, back in London, started playing with the images in photoshop. As I was playing I was listening to this album ( - in shuffle mode, highly recommended ) and I realised I was crafting the images and the colours to match up with what I was hearing. So that's how the cover images came about..." - Brian Eno
