about

This Disasteradio's first release ever. I got a CD burner sometime around 2001-2002 and did small runs by hand using the photocopier from the glass workshop where I worked for my dad.

It starts with my first ever song, made by an overly nerdy sixteen-year-old in 1999 sampling Casio keyboard beats. The CD-R was distributed through Red Letter Zine Distro, which was a mail-order outfit for homemade punk zines, cassettes and recordings, run in the early 2000s by the wonderful Kerry Ann Lee, who is now a visual artist of international prominence.

One practice that I really enjoyed, but whose use faded over time was vinyl sampling. I am still proud of the lo-fi vignette vibe in Trash City, which samples Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition".

All the songs were written in Jeskola Buzz tracker and the album was not mastered in any way. The recordings are up here exactly as they are on the CD-R.
