"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.

Oh dear. AnalogX foolishly released a tool called "Scratch" that allows you to cut wax with wave samples. Unfortunately, I discovered this tool and used it waaaay too much in this relatively tedious and uninspired track.

It's very loud. This version is the original without the awful filter effects that may be found on the one on AudioGalaxy. I don't know what I was on when I put those in. This mp3 is also 160kpbs CBR, and is therefore better quality than the old one too.

Extravehicular Activity, or EVA, is when someone goes outside a vehicle in space. This track uses two samples from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (radio series - in all honesty the only good things about the TV series were the animations and the clever 'virtual studio'-esque type things they did. And the books didn't match the radio one either.) without permission and BBC lawyers will no doubt soon be flooding to my contact page in order to explain this to me. If they do that, then that will fill me with incredible warmth that the BBC's famous Beasting People Department visited my website, and the samples will be replaced with some crap ones that say the same thing.


TheWeevil - Raw Meat (easy mix)

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 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.

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.

I saw a helicopter outside when going down to the petrol station at 11pm to buy Red Bull and peanuts and no petrol. It was flying in circles and had a big search light on the front of it and I felt quite disturbed, since a helicopter with a big search light on the front means something is lurking on the streets, and the safest place to look for it is 300ft up in a chopper. So - while hurrying swiftly back to the sanctity of home to a background of pattering rotor blades, fueled heavily by the aforementioned Red Bull and peanuts, I naturally thought of Airwolf. If you haven't heard of Airwolf then maybe you should go and jump off a bridge, because clearly you have learned nothing of crappy ancient 80's TV shows that featured helicopters with fluorescent lights on them To Make Them Look Cool And High Tech. Airwolf was Knight Rider in the sky. To cut a long story short, I made a version of the theme tune, and here it is. My limited research tells me the original is by Sylvester Levay.

A "sad but hopeful" track that marches depressingly on, looking possibly for some lyrics or something. It's quite nicely done with some good strings in there. Worth a listen.
