Listening Recommendation
 Comic Bakery (feat Hanna Kappelin & Morpheus)
Arranged by o2


Oh my GOD!! This utterly, utterly, UTTERLY beautiful cover of Comic Bakery practically game me a JOYGASM the first time I heard it!!! I'm a huge fan of 80's electro / synth tracks (and the works of Mr Jarre of course) so hearing this piece was like having everything I like in a piece of music injected directly into my brain!!

The vocals are a VERY nice touch and the section of the tune where everything seems to go wrong and conk out is brilliantly done and definitely appeals to my somewhat warped sense of humour. The tune soon picks itself up after that and delivers and thoroughly lovely cover of Comic Bakery with fantastic powerful synth lead sounds, classy vocals, superb Kraftwerk-esque percussion, sexy sequencers and lots of other assorted ear-candy. Oh and it's a Galway track too - things just don't get much better than this!

To sum up, this is possibly one of the finest covers of Comic Bakery I've ever heard and this is definitely one of my favourite Commodore 64 remixes released in 2004 so far. Well done to everyone involved with this remix, it's gonna be a tough one to top I reckon!

 Druid II - Enlightenment
Arranged by No-XS


Pretty much what you`d expect here: starts with string pads, goes on with `fantasia`-style bright pads (possibly some stock sounds from a synth), but the addition of the harp is nice. The middle livens up a little (with stock (?) brass lead), but at that point, it feels like it`s just dragging on. The closing choir is a nice touch again.

Absolute perfection. This track will be played at my funeral (if that's not infringing any copyrights?)

Reyn Ouwehand - The Blithe, the Blend, the Bizarre

The Blithe, the Blend and the Bizarre

by Reyn Ouwehand

Reyn Ouwehand once again sets new standards in C64 live performance. This CD concentrates on those small or overlooked tunes that once filled our hearts with joy, and produces the definitive versions of them. Once you've heard his rendition: your brain will always think of the tunes that way. Performed live by Reyn and previewed extensively on Boz's Bit o' Bollocks Slay Radio show, this CD is further enhanced by Gilliam-esque artwork from the multi-talented Reyn and that Wizball and Sanxion-meister himself, Mark Hennessy-Barrett. This CD will leave you with a big soppy grin on your face. Guaranteed!* * Not a guarantee, but it's very likely.
