I prefer a Neurosis screamfest to a Moroder bassline any day of the week.
Electronic Music other: Tripping balls down memory lane
Written September 13 2009 , Tags: old, crap, weird
A few years ago I lost basically everything I've ever done in a hard drive crash (the backup drive literally burned up). So imagine my surprise when a friend of mine told me that he had 200+ MBs of old mp3:s of mine on one of his computers.
Man there was some strange shit there. A cover of "we are the world" with finnish speech synthesis for vocals for example.
I don't remember even half of it. Funny thing is, I don't remember being a fall down blackout drunk either. Which is the only reasonable explanation for most of those songs. What gives?
Anyway, if you haven't listened to your old stuff in a while, I highly recommend it.
Oh and by the way, if you have my old "El Cangrejo" tracks lying around somewhere I'd really appreciate you PM:ing me.
Are you going to host some of this stuff somewhere to let us hear it?
Seriously, I gotta hear that "we are the world" with finnish speech synthesis.
Post it up!

That's what the blackout part means.
As requested. You've been warned.
you already had put it up online to paste the link as soon as someone would have asked for it, isn't it!?!?!?!?
zanf: I doubt it, it's actually pretty bad.
Speaking of tripping balls ... anyone tried 2C-E yet?
whew!!!! (illegal in sweden)
djugel: hahaha, doesn't sound that healthy.
zanf: Alright, here's one. The concept was to make an extremely cheesy track and distribute it on p2p networks as a fake Slint cover to fuck with post rock heads. link
ewwww..... you should be glad your HDD crashed if thats the quality of it ;-)
one word: moar!
i picked up a box of old belongings from my mom's place and in it were a few old cassettes i made back in junior high. it's funny how metal and angry i was back then. i seriously couldn't play most of what was recorded on the cassette today. i only remember having to hitch a ride (couldn't drive yet) down to the pubic library (remember those things?) to check out a book on audio recording. with it i was able to get a really ghetto overdub recording setup by removing the erase head on my dual cassette boombox. ahh memories....
maybe i'll root around and see if i have any orgical cds i did on rebirth/reason 1 and release a cheesy montage.
It's like this (turn off the music) link
but for 8-10 hours.
any of you etymologists know where the term "tripping balls" came from?
just seems like there should be a story there.
