Scalford Music for Non Exhibitors

Recommended Posts

We've always brought our music with us, usually half a dozen CDs and sometimes some vinyl. Once heard though most exhibitors apart from Mr Shipbroker (who I might add has extremely good taste in music) don't want us to come back.

I would be happy to let a few Wammers take over the room and it might put a different slant on how Salford works.

Not trecking all the way to the outskirts of Manchester, just for a bleedin hifi show.

128 Gbps, where did you get kit that can do that? I suppose you must be about able to get one song on a 2TB disk! Awesome commitment there.

You do realise that Rocky has no chance of understanding that post?

I'm happy to play other people's tunes. I didn't get a visit from the Klangers CD last year. I did get some bleep techno and a Deep Purple LP that led to an interesting discussion on the definition of the word 'raucous' won comprehensively by the John Peel Session version of Quad by The Heads:rockin:

Good luck, but I wouldn't rely on it so bring plenty of your own.

My experience

Q Has any one brought any of their own music they would like to hear?

A (Blank Looks)

Q OK, Are there any suggestions of either artist or if I haven't got that perhaps genre that you might prefer?

A (Blank looks)

OK I will play what I like then.

Every year, just about, I suggest that the Show names a reference recording that everybody knows and owns and is freely available on all 3 formats (Streaming, or whatever you want to call it, CD and vinyl) that either the demonstrator brings along or a visitor brings along so that we can get a comparitive handle on how good all these systems are. Eg., The Chain (F. Mac), Walk On The Wild Side, Warm Leatherette etc.,..

What an excellent idea! A great way of getting a true comparison of the various systems. Preferably one that tests the system out in all areas - bass, top end, MIDs, dynamics and imaging. Can't see everyone agreeing to the same one track though, although I may be wrong.

Please no :doh:

Save this comparative nonsense for commercial shows. Just enjoy the systems and the music.

Yes but do you have etchings...? :P

Only a hand bound (lizard leather) first edition of Jeubert's '1000 positions for the aspiring mistress', dated 1809...any good?) :)

This. Part of the joy of Scalford is listening to the music people like on the systems they have put together for that music. Besides, I don't own any of those supposed standard recordings.

At first I thought what a great idea....then I thought there's probably a special circle of hell where you're at a hi fi show....showing your gear...and people turn up wanting to play the same track.

Till the end of time.....

There is only one possible tune for the job: Mollusc in Tyrol by The Fall. As this will never be agreed to, I suggest we all play our own choices and have a laugh while doing so.
