We Are The Walrus, Songs from my Collection by Anders Östberg

Many things can come to mind while listening to a seemingly endless repeat of the same song, albeit in slightly altered versions. A giant speaker in space could be on a drift, without any chance that the sounds will ever be heard; radical demonstrators could block the streets, a sound system on their truck that plays this song for weeks, while the demonstrators themselves have left the place as from the first minute.

The Scratched Vinyl Show 4, Sunday Loops – By Adrian Shephard

Not afraid of popular music and the CD as a format he extracts the epic ingredient as easily as the bombastic, the ironic and yes, the experimental element out of the 70 year history of music for young people. If there will be a need for ‘the periodic table of pop tunes’ some day, the scholars will ask Lepke B. for advice….
