If you’ve really been aching to see Ms March with a monster synth, the APC crew has got you covered.
While the site of a large modular synth, a Roland TB 303 or a Fairlight CMI III is titillation enough for most synth freaks, the 2010 APC calendar goes a step further.
Here’s what APC’s Simon Iddol has to say about their 2010 calendar:
The calendar itself is a limited edition (500 copies) A3 sized wall calendar featuring legendary synths like Fairlight CMI III, Roland TB 303, PPG Wave, EMS AKS or Roland Jupiter 8.
Our aim is to create a calendar like this in every year and to do something for the music world like the Pirelli calendar for the car world.
If every garage has a hot chick VS cool cars calendar, than every studio needs our calendar.
The model is a world famous Hungarian striptease dancer and model Dorothy Black.
The politically correct side of me thinks that they should have balanced out the gear photos featuring the “world famous Hungarian striptease dancer” with some shots with a hunky naked guy – but photos of naked guys with monster synths would probably kill the vintage synth resale market on eBay forever.
The calendars are $30 via PayPal. Details at the APC site.

Here’s something cheery for all the Moby-haters out there – news it’s Moby’s birthday – and that Moby’s birthday is going to be way better than yours.
First off, there’s the presents:
- a poem about tacos
- some pleasant quasi-soft-core porn
- a book about tea production
- a vegan cassoulet (a french dish normally made from sausages and pig fat)
- Reading through loads of ‘happy birthday!’ emails
Not sure about the taco poem – but it’s probably by Beck or something.
Then he’s off to have lunch with Jean Michel Jarre, to chat about how to deal with piles of cash and what to do with all those promotional synths that companies give them.
Next up, it’s time to hang out in Paris with Scarlett Johansson.
Not bad for a “weird bald guy“, eh?
This is a must see – Calvin Harris may have created the ultimate electronic music controller – bikini clad models painted with conductive ink.
Harris performs a version of his new single Ready For The Weekend on a unique human synthesiser- the Humanthesizer.
The instrument employs 15 bikini clad models painted with Bare Conductive, a new skin safe ink which conducts electricity. When the performers touch, the connection completes a circuit, triggering a sound.
Think it’s all fake, and just a cheap excuse to get 15 bikini clad babes into a music video?

OK – who’s got the best caption for this? The best I could come up with was “Two Girls, One Organ”.
I know you can do better than that!
Bonus points if you can identify the vintage organ!
