WOM Kit
I recently ordered a kit from Tom Bugs from Bug brand
http://www.bugbrand.co.uk/
This is what was said for this particular kit:

The Workshop Oscillator Machine (WOM) has been designed as a simple DIY kit to introduce some basic electronic techniques in workshop events. Parts kits with PCB, all components and detailed instructions are sold from time to time. As of October 2010, kits have changed very slightly to V.3.1 status and all kits for sale (ie. outside of workshop events) are now labeled PRO and feature the nice mini-pots as found on the Weevil designs.

Amazing stuff by the way, and I have been watching this kit for a while. It was the last kit from the batch and it arrived after a week that I ordered them. That is quite fast as I was used to getting things 2 weeks after ordering. Anyway the kit was all that I could ask for as a newbie. Documentation was superb.
Though I wasnt able to get it running the first try, but after consulting with my friend Dougall and him pointing out obvious reasons for it to work properly. I am now happily playing with it.
This will be one of the core pieces on my planned Wiquwi set up, plus a few more sound devices from Mr. Bugs.

I missed a couple of sessions due to different reason, and this was just my third session with the group. This time I intend not to use everything on hand. Was able to come in on the second set and on the last one. Just like the previous session, the last set was what we were there for. Everyone was exhilarated when we came off. And it was obvious that it was the last song for the night. Just a fair warning, it gets quite intense in the middle of the last set so proceed with caution.
