Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

OMD - Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes

OMD released their second album 'Organisation' in 1980.

A 7 inch bonus EP entitled ‘Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes’ were given away with the first 10,000 copies of the album.

The album came in a grey sleeve with a sticker stating 'Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes'.

As well as a merchandising insert the bonus 7 inch EP  - omd dep 2 - featured some previously unreleased tracks.

The tracks were actually recorded during a gig at Eric's Club, Liverpool and feature a spoken introduction by Dave Fairbairn.

These tracks reflected OMD's early collage approach in which excerpts taken from radio and TV broadcasts would be cut and edited into songs. Once When I Was Six features dialogue taken from the TV drama series The Pallisers (1974) based on the the novels of Anthony Trollope.
