FINALLY, something that has been in the making since Kim bought me a 4 Track recorder soon after we were married:
Pygmy Beat has released its 1st album:
Like Lies To Children. The title can be explained, if you want to get into that sort of thing, by cross referencing Terry Pratchett and his explanation of Science. The cover photograph, by Kim, takes this to a local level.
YES, an album finally.
Terry Berman and I have written a suite of songs that cover a variety of themes, have been recorded in a variety of places with a variety of devices from 4 Track Cassette to Roland Disklab, to an R16,to Cakewalk and finally Reaper. All tracks but one were stem mastered and prepared for the for the digital world by Jan at finemastering.de.
We've been ably assisted by Kim, Miriam Stavert (nee Webb), Rami, Gerry Steele, Marc Cornelis and Greg Loyacano to set down on a plastic disc 11 songs from what could be argued are our 1st 3 incarnations: moving from folk to folk rock to some slightly psychedelic rock.
You can listen to demos of some of the tracks on the Soundclick player on this page and have a squiz at the covers as well as the cost (about $11 delivered) at Kunaki - Pygmy Beat.
The digital version can be downlaoded in various formats from BANDCAMP for AUS$7.
Yes, the world is flooded with disposable music that you don't hold onto for long but these songs have lasted from between 2 and 30 years already and only need a little support from you to last a lot longer.
Terry & ray
