    Dr Calculus - Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy

    Here's one for you experts at hard to find gems.
    Who remembers Dr Calculus - 'Designer Beatnik', an experimental project with Stephen Duffy (ex early Duran Duran), Roger Freeman (ex Pigbag), Francoise Gigandet, Izumi Kobiashi, Tamsin Anne De Roemer, Chris Lee and Olly Moore.
    Issued on 10 Records in Uk in 1986, it was a very interesting 'dance' record with unusual samples.
    Track listing:
    1, Blasted With Ecstacy.
    2, Programme 7.
    3, Moments Of Being (interlude)
    4, Killed By Poetry.
    5, Moments Of Being (reprisal)
    6, Man.
    7, Dream Machine.
    8, Candy Floss Pink.
    9, Just Another Honey.
    10,Designer Beatnik
    11,Perfume From Spain
    A very hard to find gem!
    Anyone remember?

    I've never heard of them, but there seems to be a few around:

    The only song that sounds vaguely familier is Designer Beatnik. But no I don't remember them. Wish I could here a sample though.

    If you want mp3's i don't mind making them up.
    I don't think Designer Beatnik was released as a single. I don't know if giving you the lyrics would jog your memory. I doubt it!

    Designer Beatnik

    Yes we went.
    Oh the temple.
    Yeah yeah.
    Sure.
    Yeah yeah.
    (Giggles)

    That's the lyrics!

    Well i do have fond memories of "The Lillac Time" which was another of his projects.

    I understand Stephen Duffy is now writing songs with Robbie Williams
    "The outlaw stance is so pedantic
    Hate the world, it's so romantic"

    Re: Dr Calculus - Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy

    This discussion ended some time ago, but I want to react to it anyway.
    I'm trying to put all my music into mp3 format including my records. I don't want to pay twice for my music, so I'm trying to find mp3s on the internet for the records I have at home. One of them is the 12" single "Programme 7" from Dr Calculus. I am not able to find this music on the internet. If there is anybody around who knows where to find mp3's of the songs on this record, please tell me. It will be appreciated.
    Songs on this 12" single:
    A - 1. Programme 7
    B - 1. Programme 7 (Mixe Brève)
    B - 2. Killed By Poetry

    Re: Dr Calculus - Stephen 'Tin Tin' Duffy

    I have recently been looking for Dr. Calculus as well. I just purchased today the original Designer Beatnik album as a digital MP3 download off of Amazon MP3.com. It cost me $10.00 and has 5 bonus tracks (16 tracks in all). It looks like the bonus tracks may include the entire track listing of the 12" you are looking for. Hope this helps.

    P.S. - I know this digital download is also available on ITunes.
