Before a vaccine – living in the time of polio

I have a friend my age who was infected by polio. Here is an excerpt from a letter that he wrote to me:

Their blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and crude vocal sampling came to the fore in their singles Lies and The Mother We Share and helped them reach #5 in the BBC SOUND OF 2013, and #2 in the UK Blog Sound of 2013.
