about

In 1984 somebody stole my Roland SH-2 synthesizer, Boss DR-55 Dr. Rhythm drum machine and Roland MC-202 synthesiser with 2 track sequencer. Last year I brought dusty vintage replacements on eBay.

I've tried to make an album as I would have done in 1984, but recorded to digital and not tape. Live takes, no more than 2 attempts, with in-line outboard effects and with no processing apart from mixing and adding a low drone recorded in one take.

It took 30 minutes to write the theme of the one "chord" change, 5 days to setup, 2 days to record and 3 days to mix, master and publish.

I've packed the old gear away and will get it out in another 33 years!

Many thanks to Wilmer Ongsitco Chan for his humour, guidance and patience, but it's all my fault.
