Awesome! I love these old sci-fis, thanks for posting!

Richard Brandt

War of the Worlds!

And no, that picture isn't phallic at all.

Marc

No, it's not phallic; obviously that ray gun was inspired by a visit to the Hayden Planetarium. It's a pair of Zeiss star projectors flanking a sort of atomic-powered Mighty Wurlitzer.

Props to the anonymous author of "Forbidden Planet" intro. So often the timelines for events are so short as to be laughable ( space 1999 anyone? ). 2100 is about right for interplanetary travel.

as the comment section for the other posts are closed... i would like to ask you to post some more of this great bco tunes... having collected within years nearly 40 cassettes and more than a dozen of cd/cdr's, i can't get enough of this great stuff... and sorry to say that, but bco lost some of it's most original sound since you left... never again heard such great mind blowing collages as on bobsquirt from baobab or such great decomposed tunes as on so much dancing then nothing... bco lost's a big part of it's humorous and grotesque edge...
cheers from germany
