  1. I still get goosebumps when I think of the first time I heard TD. It was 1979 and John Peel played Cloudburst Flight on his show. I went out and bought Force Majeure straight away – followed by Phaedra, Rubycon, Ricochet, Encore, Sorcerer and my all time favourite – Stratosfear. Its hard to articulate the impact they had on me – other than to say I had a Korg MS20/MS10/SQ10 within two years aged 19. I loved the Froese/Franke/Baumann lineup as well as Schmoellings time as he added some real heart.It all started to fall apart after that for me – but I continued to collect to this day. TD gave me so much and set the course of my artistic life.

  2. TD is one of the main reasons I got into electronic music… yeh the best stuff still gives me goosebumps too, its quite literally a “magical” feeling

    also, the Doctor Who theme from the early 80s, when I was a wee lad – same deal..
