Sorry for the necromancy but this is a good thread.

My first show ever was in 2007, boy did that one suck. My first actual chip show was one I helped organize in downtown Lakeland with Lissajou and Goatslacker.  Just me, a few contollers, a delay pedal, and a bass player. It went pretty well.

DJ Swampy never actually showed up so we had a lot of last minute prep work to do. Here's a video from my last song:


The other fellas did well and I appreciated their driving so far.

The only time I sell my stuff is when I invest a large amount of cash/time into the production of it. Out of 16 releases, I've only sold two. The chiptune release sold next to nothing (it's free now), while the noise-pop album sold well.

This is really solid. Took a few listens to grow on me as most chip albums do, but yeah. Track 2 stands as my favorite right now.

Woo, glad you guys are enjoying it! Any suggestions for blogs or anything that may enjoy this style?

how can people be this dumb?!

I'm in Winter Haven quite a bit cause my sis goes to PSC for music. Definitely want to jam though. We have a mission trip to New Orleans with our youth coming up to help out with the spill and minister... but after that I'll have a crapload of free time. Thursdays, Fridays, and Sunday nights are usually best for me.

Guess we can continue this in PM so I don't crap up my thread.

No flippin way, WINTER HAVEN? I live right near Bartow. Ahahahaha.

This thing has a few throwbacks to Magma and Ruins and stuff like that, but it's mostly the standard over-the-top prog rock/chiptune type deal I put out every now and then. Runs about twenty minutes. Info:

Father Gabriel's contemplative gaze at the twilight sky was violently interrupted by a legion of alien flying machines. Rhythmic chants of "Dauda Fruiht Tageur-De" filled the air as the ships descended further. Gabriel blacked out. He later awoke with implanted memories depicting a species of intelligent fruit-like beings and their beautiful dying planet. These are the folk songs of a lost world.

2. Poison Berries; Long Live King Kiwi!
