Kaleidoscopic Kids Music

Think your childhood was weird? Not weird enough, says Stuart, as he explores some of the strangest music to be aimed at youngsters.

Think your childhood was weird? Not weird enough, says Stuart, as he explores some of the strangest music to be aimed at youngsters. Featuring impressionistic chorales, Tomita’s evocative synth suites and a sinister xylophone lullaby version of Depeche Mode. Plus, there’s a report from Capsule’s annual kids gig as part of Supersonic Festival, featuring a musical robot and the second smallest member of Stuart’s family.
