The first ‘track’ I ever put together from beginning to end and recorded to tape in 1987.
I thought it was amazing, then someone said ‘that sounds like Dancing with Tears in your Eyes, by Ultravox’. It was then I realised the power of the sub-conscience to influence and have been wary ever since.
Using the weedy sounds of the Casio MT100 and some whooshy sounds of the ocean mixed in (by twisting wires) from cassette tape, whilst being recorded to my friend Karl’s parent’s posh ‘music center’.
I think I played it all live in one take as I didn’t have a sequencer or a multi-track recorder of any type. There are some obvious mistakes near the end which I tried very hard to pretend were ‘meant to be like that’.
