Re: Did you know?

Notably, the composer of the soundtrack for The Long Good Friday, Francis Monkman, was formerly of the band Curved Air and then the progressive band Sky, whose track "Hotta" was that covered by Antony Crowther in the title theme for Suicide Express: 7-i53oa5qZQ And Francis knocked up this rather ace...

Re: Anyone know the source of this C64 mix?

Not sure who made this, but what I can identify is the following: At 3:24 is The Human Race, subtune 4, by Rob Hubbard. At 5:55 is Thalamusik (Sanxion Loader) by Rob Hubbard. At 6:41 is Noisy Pillars (tune 1), by Jeroen Tel. That may help you identify the remix if you're looking for notes on parts c...

Re: Retro Gamer Back Issues up for grabs

Hi folks, New job and all that working in London, so moved to Croydon (renting) just before Christmas last year. Hence the selling off of plenty of stuff on eBay and also selling my house in Manchester as well at the moment. In fact I found more issues so I had 95 back issues in all (from 25 to 121 ...

Retro Gamer Back Issues up for grabs

As part of a general clear out, I have 51 back issues of Retro Gamer magazine looking for a new home. The issues are: 25-55, 59, 76, 81, 82, 84, 85, 95, 96, 109-119, & 121. Plenty of C64 related content in those issues as well as other platforms. If you're interested (and much rather ship the lot ou...

Re: Mark Clements

The Heatseeker v1 SID is in his folder in HVSC. If you wanted the raw disk image with it on instead, let me know.

Re: Mark Clements

Was there anything notable on there apart from the work disks of work tunes which I'd already recovered for HVSC? The Heatseeker version 1 particularly as he mentioned suited the game far better than the compromised piece he had to put in due to limited memory..

Re: Thanatos question - composer?

Just out of interest, you do have STILView enabled in your SID player, don't you? :) For those of you who don't know what I'm on about, certain SID players will allow you to view the information from the SID Tune Information List (STIL) when the SID is playing. For Sidplay2/Windows, check Settings /...

Re: Bitlive Brigthon 2015

This might help - it's from the Church's own Facebook presence and also on their website: https://www.facebook.com/StGeorgesChurchConcerts/photos/pb.406634282835342.-2207520000.1425837814./415999235232180/?type=1&theater The stage is top middle of the shot, so the balcony view is probably either sid...

Re: Matt Gray "Reformation" Kickstarter

I took the level 5 in the end plus t-shirt and vinyl as well.

Really pleased that all 20 VIP places were already taken though - and if you're reading this Matt, my offer still stands for any sleeve notes you need writing :)

Re: Matt Gray Produced Box Set

I agree broadly on The Basement In Game. So many people love the atmosphere it creates for that level. From a personal point of view I was always pleased with the actual sounds used in that track. To get the big kick/tom that dominates the 1st half I found if I used a very low root note on a certai...

I can't remember any commissioned tracks that didn't come out, though I can remember a few I never got paid for :x Thanks for nowt Hewson Consulants. :nonono: I didn't know they weren't so hot at paying people, and that's definitely not good. So they didn't give you anything for Maze Mania or Deliv...
