From 1991 to 1997 i wrote about 8 Albums, perhaps around 100 songs for combatlinkK. Some i remixed, some i ported to MIDI in 1997, but none i ever recorded or sent them out. Because i could have done it anytime and because i could do it tomorrow.
I have never done anything to really promote or get something started with combatlinkK. Until now, i just skip through the folders, remember what i wanted to do, remember what ideas went into the songs and how i matured from a nameless combatlinkK member to aGe2.1 and beyond.
The other night, i found a VHS Tape and thought to myself - lets digitise some of that. And i found video footage i made in 1992. I remembered how much time i spent on doing it. I remembered how much i enjoyed my stuff and how no one in the whole world seemed to understand what i wanted to do with it or why i spent all nights composing tracker songs instead of sleeping. Well, actually, i slept at school. I just looked like i was awake.
So, the other night again, everything really broke down. Crashed. Everything came up again. I turned my equipment off, sat in the dark and thought to myself: "What the hell have you been waiting for? Why did you torture yourself with endless waiting and postponing descisions?". I had a very hard hour.
Then i turned my equipment back on, and killed a demon. I hope you can enjoy the result. It is nothing spectacular, besides. I do hardly believe anybody else but me understands this, but thats not the point. I think at least *that* is easy to understand.
PS.: To not sound like the big pretender - this will not be the last one.
