Re: englishe looper - ed alleyn-johnson

Thanks for the reminder Nigel - I've not listened to Ed in years, but
Ultraviolet was almost certainly the first live looping I was ever
consciously aware of, and apart from really enjoying the music, I used to
try and work out how on earth he was doing all of it live. It certainly had
a big influence on me wanting to get into looping, even though I didn't
really get to try much of it for a few years after I was listening to Ed...
I might just have to go and find both those albums again!
