about

Introducing my second compilation of early four track cassette and other tape recordings "Magic From The Attic 2, Early Recordings 1990-1994." It includes many of my favourite recordings, and many popular ones, including "Dawn," "Plastic Windmills" (two versions) and "Memoirs Of An Amnesiac." As a bonus I have included four of my reel-to-reel "slow" pieces, recorded at high speed and played back slow. (Klaw 2 and 3 and Lifeforms 1 and 2) From 7½ in/s down to 1⅞ in/s. Whereas "Magic From The Attic" (Fragment Records 1991 CLOD 10) was a more varied affair that flew off on tangents, ("Schizophrenia on a grand scale...") this album is more consistent. It is totally instrumental, non-vocal. What it lacks in songs it gains in atmospherics and feel. There are still more tracks from that productive time, when I was known as "the only guy to be able to make a four track cassette sound like twenty-four." Their humble origins should not put you off...they are not demos. They are fully formed out of creative limitations. Digitally remastered to preserve the authentic sound of the source tape. Enjoy!
