A friend has been talking about remixing some of my early tunes done with the Macintosh SE. This gave me a push to re-record some of them from the original cassette tapes. All of the below were posted a couple of years ago, but most of these new (old) recordings sound a bit punchier now. Besides the Mac (which has a very primitive "8-bit" sound) I used a few lock grooves (and um, "found" beats) from vinyl records playing on turntables, saying a short prayer that everything would stay in sync.

Thanks, Travis. A couple of these almost, maybe, not quite get into the Unicorn Hard-on zone of lo-fi distorted fuck-upness. I realized that while I was recording them and accidentally played them too loud. (See "Phil's Revenge"--the non hi-fi version.)
