"I've uploaded a high-quality recording of 'Nanogram' (1976) since many fans may not know this great piece," wrote Robert Webb of England. 'Nanogram' was not part of the Garden Shed album, but was released as a B-side to the single, 'Paraffinalea.' I used real harpsichord, Minimoog (played 'live' with the left hand) and Mellotron Brass features in the middle and end sections.

"Progress on the new album has slipped into slow-mo (again). But stay tuned in." [Source: England]
