Title: Locomotive BASIC - BEAT by Graham Read
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 17:42, 26 June 21

Type-in from the May 1988 issue of Computing With The Amstrad magazine.
Program is Listed at end of video.
This sounds like the type of thing you would find as a filler track on an early Throbbing Gristle, Human League or Cabaret Voltaire album.

From CWTA:
"The more modern of this month's musical programs. Beat, packs a lot of sound into a small amount of code. The syncopations going on behind the main theme are very realistic."
