"Music"
My music is like a road accident. It is atrocious, yet some sick people seem to be attracted to it.

There's not much more that needs to be said. Most of this stuff is done using a tracker (ModPlug, which is free).
I've acquired 4 (count them, four) dedicated fans, and several other people who say "hmm that's not awful". I am advised that they are not receiving care in the community.

If you're asking which one to download first, try Work In Progress or Every Waking Moment as everyone seems to say they're the best. Helpful and constructive criticism (like: "OMG you suck. Please stop doing this!") is always graciously received.

Requests for the original .IT, .S3M etc files
To my great surprise a few people have been asking about getting the music in it's original "tracked" form. I don't give it out, sorry. Here's my reasons:
  1. The file size is often larger than the MP3 version
  2. A lot of them use VST plugins that you might not have
  3. They're no good for learning tracking from. If you want to learn how to do it I suggest you go to www.modarchive.com and download some of the smaller tunes from there.
I'm prepared to offer up the samples though since they're mostly royalty free, if you want them then contact me. It'll probably involve you sending me a stamped envelope with your address on it and a blank CD, so I can burn them and send it back to you.

TheWeevil - It Came From Tokyo
Size: 4.17mb
Time: 3:02
Bitrate: 192kbps
Samples: 48khz
Genre: Electronic
More ID3 info
The synth riff heard at the start of this track is from the "Night" music from Lotus 3: Ultimate Challenge on the Amiga. A forcefully progressive track, and one of the few I've done that I could listen to for more than an hour. Try it, you might just like it.

The only music I used from Lotus 3: Ultimate Challenge is the riff at the start of this track and lasts 8 seconds (it's looped throughout, though). Should point out that the original 8 seconds of brilliance was created by Patrick Phelan.


TheWeevil - Jam Factory
Size: 3.83mb
Time: 3:20
Bitrate: 160kbps
Samples: 44khz
Genre: unknown

Pretty good track to play along to, but really needs more work. This was never previously released on baxpace.com, but now it is. Enjoy.


TheWeevil - Ectoplasm
Size: 3.76mb
Time: 3:17
Bitrate: 160kbps
Samples: 44khz
Genre: Drum & Bass / Ethnic
More ID3 info
This is an experiment in combining drum & bass with ethnic and folk instruments. You could say "pah! That's what we call Jungle". This isn't jungle. Just try it.


TheWeevil - Overdrive
Size: 3.07mb
Time: 2:41
Bitrate: 160kbps
Samples: 44khz
Genre: unknown

Never before released, and after downloading it you'll see why. I'm ashamed of this rubbish, when compared to No Wires Left To Cut or Every Waking Moment it's just a pure embarassment. So I know you'll all download it now.


TheWeevil - Raw Meat (easy mix)
Size: 3.08mb
Time: 2:41
Bitrate: 160kbps
Samples: 44khz
Genre: Funk

Originally called "Raw Meat", then renamed "Attack of the Lascivious Breadbox Monster", then renamed back to "Raw Meat" since I spew vomit over the idea of giving tracks names that seem remotely like anything that Bentley Rhythm Ace might choose as an apt title. (yes Bentley's Gonna Sort You Out was good, but it's tracks like this that can make one go out and buy an album containing one decent track nestling in a colossal pile of garbage from hub to rim).

What was I saying? Oh yes. Raw Meat. This may well also be a colossal pile of garbage in your opinion and who am I to blame you for that. This is the "easy" mix, which by no means suggests I found it particularly easy to create (it was, but all the stuff here was easy to create...), but because I took the original and squeezed groove out of it by adding some quite extreme shuffle. I also added some wonderfully camp piano. Yes that's me playing. The sound is quite definitely Tracking Oldskool and I apologise for this, I'm sorry that most of the samples sound like they were sampled at 8 KHz from a crumpled reel-to-reel tape, but that might be explained in the next paragraph.

Uninterestingly, a lot of the samples used on this come from my faithful Casio CT-655 electronic keyboard, which is a depressingly stupid piece of equipment with extremely limited expressive ability (for example, I don't know whether brass and woodwind instruments act differently in Japan to how they do in the West, perhaps because of the varying levels of free radicals in the atmosphere in different parts of the globe, but whatever the musical engineers at Casio used as reference material for how such instruments should be reproduced was distressingly wide of the mark). So if this sounds like an early 80's experiment with digital samplers and marijuana (as most modules do) then that's why.

I originally said "this is not a cover" then harped on about how some of my stuff has subliminal influences from other tracks in it. Elle points out that I'm a fag and this is clearly a cover of Blue Monday by New Order. Unfortunately it is very similar, except the lead is different. I guess I'm damned to doing things that are unrealised covers of other things, but whatever. I did it, if it's influenced by New Order and makes people think instantly of them then it can't be that bad, although New Order did much better stuff than I could dream of creating. So yes, this is officially now a nod/cover/influence of Blue Monday. Sorry about that.


TheWeevil - Jazz Jackrabbit
Size: 2.22mb
Time: 1:56
Bitrate: 160kbps
Samples: 44khz
Genre: Game

Alexander Brandon has a habit of "dropping the bomb", as they say. This guy did some of the music for Unreal and Unreal Tournament. His theme tune for Epic Megagames' Jazz Jackrabbit is probably one of the most "dope" theme tunes to a simplistic platform game ever created. Having played through the whole of `Jackrabbit 2, mostly to listen to the music and admire a time when Epic were more free-thinking, less serious and actually made blindingly fast enjoyable games in an attempt to kick twelve shades of shit out of consoles, I decided to re-create the theme music with modarn tecnologey (i.e. Not ProTracker).

I note that Epic's more corporate attitude seems to have seen the demise of "Epic Megagames" and the adoption of "Epic Games". It's true that the games aren't Mega anymore, there's little new about most stuff Epic brings out in comparison to other developers. Soon they'll drop the Games altogether, call it "Epic Software" and make accounting applications rendered beautifully in three dimensions that require a 4GHz machine with $400-worth of graphics architecture to run at a decent whack. I should probably put a "mindless rambling" page on this site then I wouldn't have to do it all here...
