We were asked by our good friend Shane over at 'The Garden Of Earthly Delights' to knock up a mix for the show, so knock up we did and sent it over to await his pleasure. Happily, he deemed it broadcastable (if that's even a word) and it will be on air Friday, February 19th 2010, from 10pm. It's a moody mix of Debussy, library music, Unmann-Wittering originals and poorly recorded transmissions from the recesses of deep space.
We call it 'Elasticated Waste', but are not really sure why. Anyway, you can download it here and try and work out what it all means. A full tracklisting can be found in comments.
The man in the picture is Squadron Leader Rakesh Sharma who, in 1984, as part of a joint venture with the Sovet Union, became the first Indian in space. There's a guy we don't hear enough about. There is not currently an agreed term in India for their national space program's Astro/Cosmo/Taikonaut, with Ramanaut, Gaganaut and Vyomanaut all in the running to be adopted. They should make their minds up, really: they plan to be on the Moon by 2020.
