madopal Whenever the Ghost Box folks mention a release, I listen, and I listen well. Also, I'm expecting to hear something from this on a Tim & Eric project at some point. Maybe a second bit with Paul Rudd & his computer. Favorite track: Digits.

about

This is Tomorrow’s Achievements, an exclusive Public Information foray into the Canadian Library institution, Parry Music.

With access granted by founder John Parry we have selected twenty-five of our favourite electronic tracks, a late summer / early autumn heat-wave of perfect melody.

Parry Music was founded in Toronto, 1974 by John Parry and Chris Stone. John was formerly a manager of revered UK library Chappell Music and Chris was a Canadian music consultant, both brought some familiar musicians to the table.

Johnny Hawksworth, Robin Artus, Paul Kass, Nino Nardini (close allies with Roger Roger) are on board Tomorrow’s Achievements . At the same time we have a little known Canadian Library musician who features heavily, one Harry Forbes.

Forbes is the real driving force of our Parry-Love; a master of imminent, hummable melody, sublime synth miniatures baked in sweetness. Elsewhere we revel with the other players in proto-Balearic house, groovy electronic disco, spooked choral drone, freaked-modular scorch, weird Radiophonic bleep. These are the soundtracks to movie car chases never known, lost kids TV shows never realized, radio-ads never broadcast – music to make your ears sing for more.

A compliation put together piece by piece at Public Information HQ, lovingly re-mastered by Rashad at D&M and artwork by Jack Featherstone.
