" - a night of radiophonics, tape loops, vintage synths and spoken word we
braced ourselves for an eight band line up held together by a narrative
from Dolly Dolly.
Seated at a table under angle poise lamp to one side of the stage for
the entirety of the gig and looking for all the world like a broadcast
announcer of old he was a revelation, holding the audience captive
between acts as the night and story unfolded. Written by Dolly aka David Yates and label manager Alan Gubby, the tale of The Delaware Road is loosely based on two members (‘the man’ and ‘the woman’) of a sound studio reminiscent of the Radiophonic Workshop. The clues are all there, the BBC being referred to as ‘the corporation’, and the tale includes shades of The Stone Tape Theory, the occult, the swinging 60s, orgies and demonic powers released through sound recorded on cooper wire."
