As the studio melts and Siân and Andrew wilt in the heat, Melody Maker veteran DAVID STUBBS joins us to talk about his new book ‘Mars By 1980: The History Of Electronic Music’. Fellow bleeps’n’clonks devotee JOE MUGGS of Mixmag weighs in on the stuff you didn’t know about the avant garde sound that now owns the world. And yes that’s Karlheinz Stockhausen in the pic.

PLUS: We look back at the amazing NME cassettes that changed a generation’s way of listening, and the NME journo Roy Carr who compiled them. And David and Joe make their contributions to our grand compendium of summer listening and reading.
