An Occasional Diversion #16: TQN-aut Special

Updated: Dec 6, 2020

Hello and welcome to An Occasional Diversion #16 and a one-off special focussed exclusively on the excellent TQN-aut label that was birthed from the equally excellent TQ zine.

Here's a note from co-founder Andy Wood:

I ‘met’ Simon through TQ (zine) and TQN-aut (label) and his Anticipating Nowhere broadcasts and he’s now one of my close and important virtual friends.

The principle upon which the label exists is to release sounds by artists that myself and the team feel deserve wider exposure, and it is through like minded folk such as Simon and their attention to what we do, that additional platforms are offered for some amazing sounds.

I’d like to personally thank Simon for the work he does and especially his Anticipating Nowhere and the fact that he is a TQN-aut (and TQ) completist. More power to his elbow, and I for one cannot wait to hear what tracks he’s selected from the label’s catalogue.

The sounds you hear can be purchased at;

Andy (Co-founder of TQN-aut)

Enjoy and please stay safe.
