PMB261 NASA (Perrey & Kingsley, Günter Noris, Ananda Shankar, The Comet Is Coming, nightskys, Squadron Scramble, Schaltkreis Wassermann, Pere i Joan Francesc, Mario Migliardi)

PMB261 NASAIt’s time to celebrate the work of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration on the show this week, dear listener.

We have a Moonbase classic from the patron saint of PMB, Jean-Jacques Perrey, as well as some Indian retro-futurism from visionary Ananda Shankar.

But this show mostly contains tracks from musicians we’ve never played on the show before – and some of them are even quite new! We apologise in advance for this flirtation with the contemporary. Normal service will be resumed next time, we feel sure.

NASA Space Shuttle (Owner's Workshop Manual)If you’ve recently dismantled a NASA Space Shuttle but, when trying to reassemble it found that you had a few nuts left over, you may need to get yourself a copy of the NASA Space Shuttle (Owner’s Workshop Manual) from Haynes.

This manual will tell you everything you need to know about getting your Space Shuttle back into space again, as well as which weekly checks you need to carry out.

A Rocking Chair That Knits While You Sit | video

Have you ever wished that you could have a hat knitted for you while you gently rocked backwards and forwards on a rocking chair? Well, thanks to designers Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex at ECAL’s Low-Tech Factory in Switzerland, now you can!

We are considering adapting this device to knit DJ Bongoboy a woollen space cape and MC Zirconium a nice doll of Mr T from the A-Team.

PMB260 Blossom (The Loch Ness Mouse, Baden/Brenk/Petri, Komeda, Turn On, Hintermass, Aristophanes, Milt Raskin, Korla Pandit, Hideo Osaka Ensemble, COSMIC CYCLER)

PMB260 BlossomWe’re still full of the joys of spring here on the moon, dear listener as we bring you a show all about blossom and the trees which produce it.

The fruiting seed for this idea was the arrival of a lovely new album on Ghost Box by exciting new pop duo Hintermass (aka Jon Brooks and Tim Felton) which has the sound of folk music from the future.

In addition to that, we also have some Norwegians sounding Scottish, some TV advert music from Germany, some Greek philosophy by way of Taiwan and a couple of examples of what DJ Bongoboy insists on calling ‘exoticaploitation’. In an unusual move we also have some genuine traditional music from Japan.
