Found 0bjects is dead. Long live F0und 0bjects.


Back in May this year, Found Objects was "removed". No warning from Blogger, no explanation from anyone.  All concerned, including the admins of the blog, were mystified.

Now it's back, partially reconstructed in a Frankenstein's monster stylee from a pile of old bits dug up from cached pages and the vaults of  the Wayback Machine on the Internet Archive, and stuck together in a more-or-less random order.  Thank you, archivists!  And thanks to Julian House for permission to continue using his design for the logo / banner.

The plan is to continue as before.  If you were a previous contributor and would like to sign up again, please bung me an email (bollops at gmail).

Please spread the word, edit your links etc (https://f0und0bjects.blogspot.co.uk/) and look out for new posts.  Ta!

PS: A note about posts that have been salvaged from the Internet Archive: links within won't work, and you won't be able to enlarge images by clicking on them.  This can be fixed, but some editing is required...



The Boy from Space BBC Study Series

Saturday, 21 March 2015



My Good friend Mr Palmer recently picked up these two BBC study series LPs and very thoughtfully gave one of them (The Boy from Space) to me. The music and spacey sounds for the album were produced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshops John Baker & Dick Mills. Sadly there is not really a lot of music or spacey sounds on this album, but it is still a very enjoyable listen. The Boy from Space was written by Catweazle creator Richard Carpenter.
