Listen: Tom Furse visits 'The Planets'

Friend of Rocket Tom Furse from The Horrors has created a piece of music influenced by Holst's The Planets

This is what Tom says about the piece:

A while back I was asked by The Holst Birthplace Museum to make some music based on Holst's The Planets to celebrate the centenary of the work. Three fun afternoons with a modular synth gave birth to my own Planets, told from the point of view of a satellite.

As the likelihood of any sensible record label releasing such a work is rather low, I thought I might as well put it out myself for fun and hopefully to raise a bit of money for the museum as well, which runs music programs for kids amongst other things.

The track is available for download here 

So do yourselves a favour and download it...
