First of all, the homepage is just a link to my pictures on flickr. Musically I'm into electronic music from ambient to zimbabwe techno.

I'm also in producing electronic music.

With so many versions of the songs on various releases and the extra long reconstructions by Blank & Jones, I wanted the album to fit neatly on a 60 minutes tape. So I compiled and rearranged the album like this:

This is the worst album cover from DM! Not because of the painted style, not because of the photos of the members, but because of 4 separte photos from the members and the splitting of the symbols for Alan and Fletch. Anton could have done better here!

This really is the spot on incanation of the original tunes, which are Moochie's Death and Christine Attacks. Reverb on the snare, classic! The transition of the bassline ... short & very unexpected. I had fun recreating this version on my own, with... See full review

Please notice, the CD is from 1989! ABBA went hip again in about 1992, with the GOLD collection. So I think that not that much CDs of this compilation were produced due to the lack of interest that time.

This one contains the opening title from the movie Mutiny On The Bounty/The Bounty, which is one of my all time favourite Vangelis tracks of all time. The compilation is worth of this track alone! Sadly the soundtrack itself is not released by this time.
