News ! A new Stasi album “Stasi Last” has just been released featuring 19 old cuts from The Stasi archives.
Here it is warts and all. In all its naked naive glory.
From early angst of even getting a recording down, battling with MP3 conversions, burnt out Portastudios and wrong sound levels and lost recordings..
Big thanks go out to John Izzard who helped along the way and designing the cover as well as the type set.
Its over at Soundcloud under the link below. Go grab your headphones and crank up the volume !!

I had a careful listen and I have to tell you that I am impressed. I may have been enamored before, but after this not-so-quick listen, I wanted to see album art and this assembled in my library. Bravo.

Theres blood sweat and tears in those early songs. It got to a point where Id get passed an obsticle only to endure another one. I honestly thought at one point like someone had placed a musical curse on me !
Recorded with real synths and equipment (Still in spare room apart from the Portastudio which I accidently fried one day) on a MicroKorg and Juno D.
Drum machine was an Alessis (A very good one I may add !) Still got that also.

If you go to “Soundclick” there are many early gems there also.
In fact theres enough tunes gathering dust to make a few more of these compilations.

Watch this space !

Alan.

As mentioned earlier, there is a plethora of my early stuff on Soundclick (A site I no longer use)

Here is the link:
