Here’s a quick first report on current Torpor Vigil action.
Stuart Maconie expressed his enthusiasm about The Tubular West (“really getting into it”) when he played a track on his BBC Radio 6 Freak Zone show last Sunday. Evidently in a test of its structural and sonic integrity, the engineer filtered out all the low frequencies. So listeners didn’t hear, for example, the terrific bass line played by Andrea Agostini–but the song still sounded great! Listen at 59:40 for Stuart’s introduction to “Plutos’s Matches” (or start at 52:55 if, like me, you’re a Gentle Giant fan):
