Audio Plays


We are proud and privileged to present full Audio Plays for your listening pleasure!

Alistair Lock

Alistair Lock wrote and produced these plays, Takeover Bid and Planet Without a Home, just to see if he could. The first was recorded in 1986, and the second, which features Nick Briggs and Heather Tracy (née Barker) was recorded in 1988. The music for the second play wasn't written and recorded until 1990, when Alistair was able to afford a midi keyboard, computer and some sort of DOS based sequencer to control it all. The versions presented here are remastered versions of the original four track cassette tapes.

Listen to the music for both these plays in Music By Other People.
