Going through some old stuff, and found some recordings of bands I used to play in, and thought it‘d be cool to digitise them. They were on old 1/8″ cassette tapes (remember those?), and I just happen to have a USB cassette capture thingo, so away I went. And here’s the result. Don’t expect too much – these were recorded live, and cassettes aren’t known for their wide frequency response, or longevity. But it’s good toknow these recordings won’t be lost forever.
This one is an original song by “Pirates”, called “Tough Guys”, Written by the singer/guitarist Sam Bester. According to the label on the cassette, it was recorded on 26th January, 1990. No venue information was on the label, but I’m guessing it was probably at the “Doctor Syntax” hotel on Sandy Bay Rd, Sandy Bay.
