Sdtrk: ‘There is nothing I can do’ by The Organ

Right, hands up those of you who coveted, whether openly or in secret, Malcolm McDowell’s gorgeous transparent-and-chrome turntable from ‘A clockwork orange’. Apparently they’ve always been available, as they’re manufactured by a company called Transcriptors Limited (love that name). How come no-one told me?

the Transcriptor Vestigial

[Engineer and designer David Gammon]’s design concept was inspired by old clocks and watches from the 17th and 18th century. David had often asked this question many times over, why put something of engineering elegance into a black case or even worst, into a wooden case, that looked as if it had been made down in somebody’s garden shed. In fact Transcriptors started the trend to expose all the components so that they could be viewed from all angles.

Pretty horrorshow, I’d say. Just do yourself a favour — don’t look at the price
