about

First selection of 8 track demos I recorded between 1994 and 1999. Many a late night sweating over a hot tape machine. I've tried to collect them as something approaching albums so there is a general connection between the songs or they've been added to create a dynamic if the collection is played right through. There are at least 100 more to come, from funk/electronic instrumentals to acoustic "proper songs" and a lot of experimentation and half-baked nonsense which are often the most interesting in hindsight. Some of these songs went on to have lives later on but most are, should and will remain in this unfinished form forever. Each track has notes which try to remember when they were recorded etc but it's all a bit vague unless the tapes were dated, which was rare.
