1 track a week, 50 a year, 48 to go ….

After wasting so much time in the last 2 years,
not to mention the last 10. I decided to do something about it, and pull my
finger out of my arse. 1 track a week it is then.

Switching the time around has worked wonders, so here we go.
2 tracks already completed “Escape from Miami” will be up later today.
I don’t know if I can keep the quality high, enough, but I think I can.
I’ll post each track on Myspace, Last Fm and TheGhostwalk.com
and see what people think

The idea is to send some to underground labels and the rest
try to release myself digitally, or I hope (and that’s a real hope) for 7″ Vinyl mastered
and pressed in Detroit as usual.

Should have written many more tracks over the years
, this looks like it will help redress the balance and
sharpen my skills like a sniper’s bullet.

Keep watching for weekly releases….

vanished a long time ago.
Simply because I can’t edit an old tune for someone, I’ve got to
resurrect it.
I even remember making that sound at the time and thinking , how the
f**k did I find that?
You would also think my sound design skills have improved to the point
where I can just magic it from thin air.
Well they have got a lot better, but the whole point of new sounds are,
they AREN’T easy to make.So yeh, torture for me for chucking my disks away, now it’ll take weeks
(months) to recreate it.
So deep breath, suck it up, into the ring and take the punishment from
the blue skinned ones razor sharp uppercuts.
All the time hearing the words “I TOLD you ….NOT to …throw THOSE a
