Post subject:  XMAS GIFT! SIX FREE PCM FI DEMO TRACKS FROM THE 1980's!

As an early Christmas gift for fans, we've decided to make the six tracks which comprised the 'Hip Pocket Jukebox' CDR, (which was given to ticket holders at the Leeds concert/exhibition earlier this year,) available as FREE downloads via this site. These are unmastered mp3s from my 1980's PCM F1 archives and are demos or rough sketches for songs that were never developed further or publicly released. They're rough and unpolished but, hopefully, enjoyable within their technical limitations.

This does not affect the exclusivity of the 'Hip Pocket Jukebox' CDR which was produced as a strictly limited edition, being hand-numbered and signed by myself. These physical artefacts remain rare and valuable but the music itself, in basic download form, will allow fans who couldn't attend the Leeds event to hear the music.

These tracks will also give you a taste of the proposed album which will eventually surface on cd. (My plan is to eventually compile more of the best of these PCM archives as an official, physical album once the material has been properly mastered by John Spence at Fairview. Hopefully, sometime in the first quarter of next year.)

Here is the link to the Soundcloud page where you can download the six tracks at no cost. Happy listening!

BTW any chance of posting a higher res version of the cover art as this would look really nice CDR size. :D

Well, the idea is to not to infringe on the original limited-edition CDR, (and also to prevent the downloads from being burned to disc and passed off as one of the exclusive physical 'Art School Ascended On Vapours Of Roses' limited editions, which is why there's just a 'bit' of the original label. We're really just giving you the music, but not the artefact. :)
