THE SHORTWAVE SESSIONS: is a very special album from
Louis Gordon and Matt Gunn (aka Toffeetronic). It features the
highlights of six hours of spontaneous recorded material when
Louis and Matt got together in October 2008, set up their gear
and decided to see what would happen!

THE SHORTWAVE SESSIONS REVIEWS...      

Reviewer: Joe Diver, New Zealand (Customer) - Rating 9/10

Album of the year 2008. A superb melange of; Jarre before he became ultra pretentious and digital (and for that matter before he tried to become analogue anew but had lost what musical inspiration he had) OMD before they lost themselves in pointless sampling and then POPTASTIC hell. Talking heads and their funky grooves and Devo-esque vocals (with a bit of Byrne thrown in) and a bit of Joy Division on top. Most of all it is itself. Unmissable even though the premise, a CD of a jam session, sounds less than promising. In fact its so good and coherent that I wonder if the session story is just hype. No matter...Buy it.

ROBOTIC ! PSYCHOTIC ! HYPNOTIC !

I have only recently got my hands on this little marvel of a future age and mighty glad I am too! contained within is high energy, high octane, in-fact the finest reserve of electronic groove. Some places reminiscent of the vintage human league with dignity of labour ingredients at a dash. All in all fantastic and a classic that I am surely glad I own a copy of now...

Was this really a case of jammen at the mothers jam? It has it all, great title, great artwork. Reminds me of an alternative OMD. sleeve of organisation. Replace the mountain landscape with a superb and striking view of those magnificent men and their noise machines. Surely the buxton police are now in full support of toffee experiments of the future?

Right im off to look for my flexi disc...
