PRODUCT - free EP download...
PRODUCT is what Mark C (Compsey Tribunal) and Ade Bordicott (Compsey Tribunal, Stray Dog City) did between 2005 and 2007. There's a free download EP of
rehearsals here and a MySpace page here. A physical
release of the EP is also available.
Now that TCTMG is remastered, we still have the long-awaited 'Doing the Bins - out-takes and rehursals 2000-2001' and 'Buggered to Death' - yet more grist to the mill.
In fact, there's tons of stuff on tape which we'll be going through to find the best sounding tracks for release. This will include material from
all ages of Compsey, so there'll be a good spread of old and new. Much of the latter material can only be found on these rehearsal tapes.
As with many of our artists, we have in our archives a lot of rehearsal tapes - this is no different for PRODUCT. We will be scouring the archive for unheard tracks,
remastering and releasing them, as and when. Stay tuned.
We've dug out the old 4-track and if it still works, we'll have at least one extra track from the Halon 'Legacy Systems' session.
There's a boat load of NOISEBASTARD tapes to transfer to CD, so they'll be happening at some point.
