Today we meet Eurorack brand founder, live modular musician and all round wonderful fellow Finlay Shakespeare. His company Future Sound Systems is known for its under-license Eurorack adaptation of the legendary Throbbing Gristle Gristleizer, but he's done a lot of innovative and interesting stuff beyond that, mate. He was selling modules to Analog Haven while he was still in Sixth Form, for heck's sake! And in this long and deep conversation we talk about this, electrocuting yourselves, getting attacked by Dominos delivery drivers, old electro records, (live) music making, and more, and we do many silly voices and impressions. Good teims.
