As musical legends go, they're a funny bunch. Five well-turned-out but unassuming gents, harrumphing and making small talk, they could easily be retired accountants at the golf club – were it not for the fact that they're busy wiring together enough vintage synthesisers and tape machines to make a young hipster techno producer faint with joy, all while the most peculiar boinging noises emerge from various speakers.
