Excellent track list and who doesn't like Bernard Cribbins? On the download now.....
Glasgow's Production Unit embraces the Oddcast ethos with a magnificent medley spanning jazz, industrial, gamelan... and the illustrious Bernard Cribbins
The latest instalment of Spannered's Oddcast series comes from none other than Glasgow's Dave Donnelly, aka Production Unit. Dave's no stranger to these pages, having previously contributed two short works of fiction about talking cows and a rather exquisite review of Autechre's Quaristice album.

Formerly a member of Glasgow's now-dispanded electronica trio the Marcia Blaine School For Girls (along with Ruaridh Law, aka The Village Orchestra), Dave's had outings under his Production Unit guise on keen-eared labels such as Highpoint Lowlife and Stuff Records. He currently has releases primed and ready for Broken20 (which helps to run with Law) and Phuturelabs. The Broken20 release, titled ICU Tracks, is a particularly intense body of work —  a stark techno set (suitably supported by remixes from Perc and Emptyset's Paul Purgas) constructed from the sound of hospital machines.

A while back, just after we got a whiff of his Mature Cheedar Dadcast for Techno Dads, we asked Dave if he'd pick up the Oddcast gauntlet for Spannered — and he's done so with gusto. "The theme is 'other music'" he tells us, "stuff that I'd probably never normally put in a mix." Well, we think he deserves one fat cigar for this epic two-hour selection, chock-full of beauty and strangeness in equal measures — and a large plastic beaker of warm sambuca for holding the dubious accolade of being the first (and probably last) mix on Spannered to feature the versatile delights of the legendary Bernard Cribbins.
