Ambient Centre Recommends: Trans Am - Surrender To The Night LP  (Thrill Jockey 1997)

When studying my studio mate had a small army of cassettes he had found in charity shops. One had a side A that said ‘Greg’s Mix’ and turned out to be an annoying B-boy mix with lots a wicky, wicky scratching. Side B however, said TRANS AM and nothing else. It turned out to be this album and it got played over and over again. Chiefly because it’s just stupidly good fun. If you are looking for something that will make any task a joy, I can’t recommend it enough.

Peter Hook of Joy Division at TJ Davidson’s Rehearsal Room, 19 August 1979, by Kevin Cummins.

I would pay good money to see a book of photos of practice spaces. My band’s space is very dirty, unventilated, and if something gets dropped on the floor, I tend to not pick it up unless I need to.There is something about the space that almost makes it become hallowed ground. Mostly it’s broken amps, beer cans, gross carpeting, old porn, and wrestling memorabilia. Every practice space  I’ve been in is like this.
