I received my copy over the weekend. It's fantastic. @deaf I assume you bought the triple cassette as you have a different cover than me. How are the other two tapes?

Edit: felt like a mini album or appendix with a nice variety of tracks — recommended. The Psionic Realignment is an ambient trip with spoken word intros. The last tape does not have a very long runtime.

I did not. I decided to stop buying tapes. Except for the ones Spun, Ondes Positives, Terror Vision and maybe Ogre release.

Whatever happened to Vi-Res? He used to post here.

Ahh, that could be a story worthy of its own soundtrack. Flames, tension, anger, name-calling — as epic as any war taking place among the stars.

Others can fill in the details, but he lashed out at a few members. I don’t remember if he got booted or left on his own. Good times.

#115382 Well... I think it was around the time he got called out for offering, jokingly or otherwise, a bootleg cassette operation through the forum (under his nom-de-plume @phatso). Not sure he had actually crossed swords with anyone specifically before that.

I do wish him good health, wherever he roams- a complicated (and quite exhausting) fellow.

There was also a time when we laid into Burning Witches for not including his music on a compilation.

#115389 I didn’t realise phatso was vi res. He was offering the Shining on tape as I recall... that was only last year though. Not seen vi res post for a good few years. It’s a shame, that Sunstar tape is great

And announced an album to be released on Mondo/Death Waltz Originals with cover art...but it wasn't true
