Blues Horizons

Top Topham, the Yardbirds’ first lead guitarist, quit just before the group flew into pop’s highest stratosphere. Alan Clayson lends an ear to his story.

ecisions made in our youth can echo on for the rest of our lives, and rock and roll can have an especially cruel way of highlighting the difference between ‘what is’ and ‘what might have been’. Long ago, in 1963’s rainy autumn, lead guitarist Top Topham was urged by his parents to quit the Yardbirds, the group he’d launched a few months earlier with singing harmonica-blower Keith

ON APRIL 20, 1993 at 08:30, this author climbed out of a Lockheed Hercules at Ruby, an Arctic Ocean ice camp situated north of all land on Earth. Here, wind rushes across an eerie expanse of white, glaring in the high, 24-hour sun. An outpost of metal huts on second-year ice, Ruby is bright-lit but frigid: the temperature is -45°C.

Here, cold takes on a new meaning. On this high ice, north of Greenland,

Blue edges

You turn on your high-speed grinder. You offer up the bevel of your carving tool to the spinning wheel. Sparks fly. All’s going well, then — oh no! Suddenly, before you can react, a part of the cutting edge turns blue…

Bluing edges is a calamity: the blue colour marks where the temper — the hardness that the manufacturer imposed on the blade — has been destroyed. The blued part of the cutting edge is now soft; it will dull very quickly, even bend, next time you carve.

What can you do?

Other than re-temper your carving tool, nothing —

Turbocharging MV Agusta’s Brutale

Somewhere in the vast, click-bait wasteland of YouTube is a video of a tuned Toyota Celica with all its radiator hoses blowing o in unison. That’s what happens when you get greedy with turbo boost and try to contain too much of it behind a flimsy stock head gasket. And that’s just a flesh wound. Turbo builders aren’t just resourceful wrenches, they’re curators of museums of melted pistons, cracked cylinder heads, and assorted other components pushed beyond the breaking point.

Building turbocharged motorcycles is even worse. In a car’s engine room, there’s at least space to

Diagnosis of cable lines: at the gates of a new era

Today in Russia there is no practice of continuous diagnosis of the condition of high-voltage cable systems. The legal framework governing the status of the scan isolation requires cable lines only periodic tests that require the withdrawal from service of KL, do not address the issues of prevention of electrical defects, and are potentially dangerous (because they are destructive). Community experts are increasingly discussing the possibility of implementing an effective centralized system of diagnostics of electrical equipment that will solve a range of problems, from energy security to a significant reduction in material costs for maintenance and repair of
