Towards The Margins #125

August 20, 2017

An austerity special tonight. The entire playlist was put together for £8, mainly that high because I couldn’t resist adding to my Evan Parker collection so blew £7 on a CD.

Most of the tracks presented tonight are farmed from Bandcamp and the netlabel scene and I for one dare you to see any slipping of standards! An hour of prime pay what you want improv for your ears.
