SCOPE Played the international MOBO (music of black origin) awards just two weeks ago and here is some footage. Remember to put Youtube quality to HD (bottom right on the view screen)

If you are gonna do something you may as well go all out ....

Every once and a while you gotta look at and adjust your goals. Every once and a while new opportunities pop up, ones that perhaps you previously had judged to be unrealistic or simply out of reach.

So Peoples & Schmidt are looking for the impossible. A new central location in Gothenburg with space of course for an amazing LINN showroom like we have today but also for an amazing music studio and event room for up to 300 people. 

The story is simple, NOT a technical explanation of watts, Class A or B or C or cables, NOT hokus-pokus miracle torques on screws or guru touches but rather a demonstrably better music experience, on-site ... from the artist, the recording to the playback. 

The goal is to start with an artist in a room with the best recording equipment and finish in another room with the same amazing performance through your playback system. The visitor can experience an amazing LIVE performance, witness the recording and post recording processes and listen to the result, representative of YOUR living-room.

You gotta be careful what you wish for because you might discover people with aligned ideas and which when combined with what you do already and what they do already, open the key to your vision!

Nice Pipes!

On the bright side look at the latest music playback system to arrive at P&S. Very exact but not 'Exakt' if you get my meaning?

I have one comment: SKAVLAN!




(Buy the brand new album, OUT NOW on LINNrecords in 24 Bit. BUY HERE) 

I should really be an interior designer!

Alan Williams, 'bless his cotton socks' ... asked me ''why do you have a beautiful shop like this then put pick-ups and prices in your display case in the wall''? 

Sometimes that man had a point ... whiskey & anniversary glass ... Better? 

Some more pics from today's LINN rooms at Peoples & Schmidt.

And yes that is my brand new 5000 watt mega lamp, to left of Akubarik speakers in blue, that you can see in the picture. What a beauty!!

Little treat for those whom seen 'SCOPE' here first ... little bugger has got a gig at the MOBO awards*! If your good, your good ...

SCOPE played here a few weeks ago in our shop and is obviously destined for better things and it never took long. 

He has been asked by the founder of the MOBO awards to play live at a special party to be attended by industry giants.

Here is a video they made yesterday with an acoustic version of SCOPE's upcoming single 'Love Struck', guesting the one and only Maeve O'Boyle. (Maeves's brand new album is now out on LINNrecords in 24 Bit. BUY HERE)

How a cornet can get you killed!

Translation (as good as it goes): In the picture we see five Men. Four of the Men hate the fifth and the threat of violence hangs in the air. The reason is obvious; the little Man to the right is playing cornet, shit-loud, right in the face of the others.

He has even taken a belt over His kidneys which allows Him to come up in abnormal volume levels without any flaws in the performance. We do not know how long he has been there and played, but everyone who heard the potential sound pressure of a cornet, at distance of two decimetres, understands that every note is cutting through the bone and marrow of the poor other musicians .The man who is most vulnerable and whose eardrums have already sprung a leak is sitting down with an impressively bad posture, like a lost man praying. He sits poised at the edge of the chair with thighs pointing down and with prominent shoulders and arms hanging almost paralysed by His sides. Right behind him, we see a guy with some sort of women's polo with too short sleeves and a majestic sparse moustache. Why no one told him that it is a completely stillborn project to attempt to control a handsome moustache when you have thinner facial hair than most short ladies around  in their seventies, I don't know!Beside him is a guy who we do not see much of, whom has more than a frown, it's a look of deepest distaste.Next to him, however, we find the guy that looks most likely to explode. His prominent face and intense gaze suggests that he probably will be the one, of all the gentlemen, who steps forward and draws a line on the whole masquerade, perhaps by politely but firmly pushing the cornet up the blowers rectum.

Here's How Records Give You ore Of What You Want

1. They're your best entertainment buy. Records give you top quality for less money than any other record form. Every album  is a show in itself. And once you've paid the price of admission you can hear it over and over again.

2. They allow selectivity of songs and tracks. With records its easy to pick out the songs you want to play, or to play again a particular song or side. All you have to do is lift the pick-up arm and place it where you want it. You cant do this as easily with anything but a long play record.

3. They're convenient and easy to handle. With the long playing record you get what you want to hear, when you want to hear it. Everybody's familiar with them because they're light and don't take up space.

4. They're attractive, informative and easy to store. Record albums are never out of place. Because of the aesthetic appeal of the jacket design, they're beautifully at hoe in any living room or library. They've also go important information on the backs-about the artists, about the performances or about the programme. And because they're flat and not bulky, you can store hundreds in a minimum of space and still see every title.

5. They'll give you hours of continuous and uninterrupted listening pleasure. Just stack them up in your automatic changer and relax.

6. They're the proven medium. Long play records look the same now as they did when they were introduced in 1948, but there's a world of difference. Countless refinements and developments have been made to perfect the long-playing record's technical excellence and ensure the best in sound reproduction and quality.

7. If it's in the recorded form, you know it will be available on records. Everything's on long playing records these days ... your favourite artists, shows, comedy, movie sound tracks, concerts, drama, documented history, educational material ... you name it. This is not so with any other kind of recording.

8. They make a great gift  because everybody you know loves music. And everyone owns a record player because it's the musical instrument everyone knows how to play. Records are gifts that say a lot to the person you're giving them to. And they keep on remembering.

And remember ... it always happens first on records.
