The tapes and non-tapes were sent by Malachi Doyle from somewhere in Australia, J.G. Sparkes from Stockholm and Anne-F Jacques from Montreal. There are too many storylines to follow them all, but somehow Spaceships and Hitler always seem to haunt our studio.

Emmanuel Rébus was on a short visit. I had asked a sound colleague if we (half-Diktat) could do a short set as an opening on an evening organised by him. Said colleague…
