panda love unit

bedroom archeology

so  last night i pure couldn’t sleep and went looking in an old drawer i hadn’t used 5 years and hadn’t sorted out, ever.

and i found all this stuff:

this end is a beginning lyrics (and two more dead songs way too embarrassingly bad to show)

djs get doubts lyrics

demo track listing and first attempt at salt pepa words. i do all this stuff on laptop notepad now, and i’m kinda sad i’m never going to experience this history rush again.

and then underneath them (and a pile of old bills) were these kawaii little guys:

the future of portable music, 1997 - 2001. 

and, like a weird musical Mr Driller trip, underneath that;

so that there pile of dead media is, every song i recorded on my own from 1998 - 2001, band demos from 1996 and 1997, home made stuff from 1998-2000, gigs and rehearsals from the band i was in (with tom calories) 2001-3, a panda love unit show from the jug of ale in 2004 and a load of mystery labelled stuff like “NOT ME” and “super awesome don’t” and “1-12 man talking and 13-24 weird shit" 

there was also a Pixies compilation kelly made me, but in the case of a Twist compilation kelly made me. So someone somewhere was invariably disappointed 

i’d forgotten so much of the music stuff existed and thought i’d lost the rest. i think it’s gonna make for mostly embarrassing listening, as soon as i can rob someone with a minidisc and tape player, but i’m weirdly glad i found it all. 

idk what the point of this post was. i think i feel obligated to document it more than sticking it on a memory card and putting it back in the drawer.
