Pole to pole



Unless you've rabid venture capitalists or Premier League clubs in hot pursuit, a better offer than the great & now venerably double-digited Room40's anniversary compilation - the baldly titled 10 - is unlikely to come your way any time soon. Like an LMYE fantasy festival line-up (Chris Abrahams! Andrea Belfi! Richard Chartier! Greg Davis! Taylor Deupree! Ben Frost! Koen Holtkamp! Rafael Anton Irisarri! Pimmon! Janek Schaefer! Steinbrüchel!), this 40-track opus - "a summary of music and sound that has occupied our ears...past, present and future" - is yours for an email address...
