Return to sender (1998)

22 terrible songs recorded by this 19 year old art school student in his small attic studio from October 1997 till February 1998.

It’s pretty lo-fi and experimental but has some great song ideas. Like the original recordings of Squaredance, Toolbox Murders, Cut To The Chase and Candybars. These were later adopted by the group Pet or Luau.

It also has some more experimental stuff like Water Rising Sun, a poem set on some Korg ms20 sci-fi sounds, recorded at the Aki art academy.

Recorded on a Tascam tape recorder with various tape speed manipulations. You can expect the typical lo-fi arrangements using acoustic and electric guitars, melodica, some vinyl scratching, kitchen utensils, and Casio beats.
