Ancient Tape Cassette Unearthed With 1980’s Audio! April 1, 2009

That’s right, I found an old tape. THE old tape. All of my treasured music projects from ages twelve to seveteen made it onto this tape. That’s 1982 to 1987.

This first one (“Kuan-Yin’s Mission”) is a rock instrumental recorded at a local professional studio with three high school friends. Eric is playing rhythm guitar, Jeff is on bass, and Mark is drumming. I am playing lead guitar. I can’t believe we made this at age sixteen!

Kuan-Yin’s Mission

It’s an old cassette, so you’ll just have to deal with the tape noise. I did some quick cleanup to it, and I’ll be able to do better when I buy more software.

There are more gems on this old tape, and I’ll upload them from time to time.

It just said “buffering” for several minutes until I gave up. How dare you get me all excited to hear “The Mission” (wasn’t Kuan-Yin’s after all?0…what kind of APRIL FOOL’S JOKE ARE YOU PULLING ON ME, B?!!

For the technically challenged bassists viewing this page, here is a direct link to the mp3 file:

I don’t know what happened to the “Kuan-Yin” part. Mark said a little while ago that it was our band name, and I believed him.

2. Eric - April 1, 2009

I remember this like it was yesterday. Holy macaroni!

Sigh. That guitar playing is about as good as I ever got.

Fiddlesticks, Eric. I heard that latest CD of yours. By the way, as I might have guessed, you have the coolest randomly-generated-monster-avatar I’ve seen yet (the square blue dude with the shades, above). WordPress somehow generates these from your email address.
