Nice to hear from u guys. :) 'Sirius Sounds' might be my faourite psy-chill album from the 90s! I do also have all the tracks from the two "untitled" cassettes you once made. There's a couple nice tunes on those as well... any chance you'd release more material from those days?

You've got the cassettes??? Excellent!! Thanks for the support :lol:

Funnily enough, I've just been going though some of the tracks that didn't make it on to Sirius Sounds (due to time limits on the double Vinyl and CD) and the stuff we did after that didn't get released and its pretty dammed good (even if I do say so myself)! So... watch this space :rolleyes:

Thanks for the heads up! Link now fixed (I hope).

The website is basically a digitised version of my memories and a box full of photos etc that I found. A lot of things are a bit hazy these days... but I can't remember why...! :)

it's interesting to read how that iconic album came about, but i was really hoping that you'd come back with some new sounds for us.

One of my favourites from the early '90s too (Sirius Sounds), and this post reminded me that I actually haven't listened to it in ages :lol:

I don't have the physical releases but managed to get a rip of the cassettes nevertheless. :)

On them I find couple really strong tunes that should be released:

Cosmic Flash

Ultraviolet Catastrophy

Ultrascope

Inflight Trance

Maybe a few others to go with those? You'd have a buyer here!

Oh man, I forgot to mention the T-shirts, thanks for reminding me!! :+1:

If you haven't seen, we've just sorted some brand new t-shirt designs based on the artwork from Sirius Sounds and more! Check out our shop and let me know what you think!

Ha ha, a rip of a cassette? Quality!! :lol:

Those tracks were definitely among the ones I was looking at. They were never mastered originally so they would sound much better if released!

'Ultraviolet Catastrophy'? I've had a few of those but didn't call a track that.... 'Ultraviolet Frequencies' maybe? :P

Yes 'Ultraviolet Frequencies' indeed mate! I do like one of the hoodies and the mug's sweet as well... I'll support u guys just need a bit of balance on my paypal account first. 

Can't honestly believe you recorded Sirius Sounds in 14 days? Talk about real musicianship... it takes 1-3 months for me to just finish a single track. :rolleyes:

Well to be fair, we recorded it (as in mixed/remixed) in 14 days but had written most of it before then in our bedroom studio!

I think nowadays we can infinitely tweak our tracks and keep going back to it so easily that its hard to say its actually finished, back then it was a real pain to set up all the synths and mixing desk again so you worked on the same track until it was done!
