What is this and when can I plug it into my veins:



Love The Carpenter Brut, music in that sounds a lot better than Leather Teeth and more along the lines of the Awesome Trilogy stuff

Been unusually captivated by this 'Edge Runner' track from Michael Shrieve and Steve Roach's The Leaving Time LP.  Picked it up a few weeks back and have had it on almost constantly. 


That skittering, manic-tempo arpeggio, the slap bass that comes in at around the two minute mark, David Torn's guitar soaring over the whole thing. It's like they put all the shit I'm susceptible to into one track. 


Vid should start at the right point:

Generally listening to loads of really clean, digital New Age stuff from the mid-eighties. Like this piece by one-time Zappa band-member Patrick O'Hearn, that just has this patient precision to it that I find really satisfying. 



Actually found it through one of figure skater Gary Beacom's programmes from '92, which only seems to have survived in the shittiest 240p quality imaginable, but is still completely mesmerising.



I might be veering off topic.
