All about CTVTFAPD

Steven Christie, a multi-instrumentalist, composer and sound engineer, and wRong, his team of talented musicians present a new 40 track collection of television themes that could have existed during the 1960s, 70s and 80s, but didn't. Living off authentic boxed air from each year in question, the boys (ok, and girls) went to a studio back in time, and created some beautiful sounds out of analogue tape and synthesizers, cellos and kitchenware.

Do you remember the good old days? when the sun was always shining, and after school you'd dash home to catch the latest episode of Danny Byron, The Tomorrow Pylons, Grand fatty long legs, or the classic Nannygoat Of The North?

No?

Neither do I.

What they have said of CTVTFAPD...
"Really fab - my fave was probably 'Headscarf'." - Robert Popper, of BBC TV's "Look Around You"

"One of the most original pieces of classic Englishness in pop it's been my pleasure to hear in a long time" - Mike Alway, of El Graphic.

"I love it! just my cup of tea, and totally up my street, i adore these esoteric, cheesy, lounge, library sounds, i can't enough of it" - M Scott, Ebay Customer
