I’ve written about the mighty Magoo here at digyourfins many times before, although as an aside have never mentioned that the title of this very blog comes from an early unrecorded demo penned by Norfolk’s favourite sonic scientists, (at least I’m pretty sure it does – my memory serves me less and less well as […]

I’ve never been a particularly fervent fan of Thunderbirds or the work of Gerry Anderson, that’s probably sacrilegious sorry – I mean I can understand the appeal but that’s as far as it goes.
