DrGaz's Music: Old Old Stuff

I finally figured out how to convert my old audio tapes into MP3. Horray! This has given me a the perfect excuse to inflict all my old music on you!

"Old Old Stuff" is a collection of tunes I recorded on an 8-track about 9 or 10 years ago. It's a bit like with my Garageband stuff - lots of little ideas, short snippets and concepts that were recorded in the hope that one day I will harvest the better ones and develop them into proper songs! Some of them are intended to have vocals which were not recorded (I'm no singer), so it's all instrumental - just me with a guitar, occasionally accompanied by a shit keyboard.

So here they are! All 31 of 'em - some short, some long, some bloody awful, some irritating, some cheesy. But hopefully you'll find one or two tolerable ones. My apologies for the quality of some of the recordings, but the little analogue 8-track I used was just borrowed from a mate and it wasn't a particularly great one.

What I've done is compiled all the songs as MP3s over podcast and you can listen to them using the players below. The reason there are two players is because for some reason odeo.com wouldn't let me put more than 20 MP3s into a single podcast. Very annoying, but hopefully I'll work out how to get around this soon.
