First Post

Alright, first (and I really hope not only) post is to be made by me, since I made this thing. I'd just like to say that Boards Of Canada (Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin) are indeed the reason I got into electronic music, why I produce it, and why I now listen to it more or less exclusively. It was the blizzard of 2000, I was driving 40 miles home from work, and the trip took me 6 hours that day, but I didn't care because it gave me a chance to discover the program "Radio Tonic", broadcast then from WPRB at Princeton University (103.3 FM). They played Land Of The Loops, Plaid, Aphex Twin, and I was entertained as usual, but not enthralled until they played BOC's "Aquarius". And that, as they say, was that.

All I'll say about BOC is this: If you don't mind being saddened by music in a way that makes you happy, and nostalgic in a way that makes you feel like a kid again, then this is the place for you. I'll leave it up to you to fill in the rest, and by the way, this is REALLY the place for you if you can find any rare/good BOC shit out there, interviews, photos, info, discogs, mp3s, anything. Post and enjoy.
