organfairy's oldest surviving cover

Published on Dec 2, 2013 organfairy·400 videos

"This is not a very good cover of "Video killed the radio star" by the Buggles. But it gives an idea on how I was playing in 1995. The way this botch job was done is that I recorded the drum machine and bass on a tape recorder. Then I transferred this recording to another tape recorder (actually the one I use in this video - Beocord 2000 de luxe) while mixing in some more sound. Then I transferred this recording back to the first tape recorder again and continued in this fashion untill I had build up the arrangement. Unfortunately this method adds another layer of noise for every transfer - we were back in the analog days - and that can be heard in the beginning.

The instruments I used was: Casio SA-1 and SA-3 toy keyboards, Bontempi KS-3400 ditto, Boss OC-2 octaver, Roland CR-1000 drum machine and SH-2000 synthesizer (at that time my only profesional instruments) and Kawai MS-20 toy-but-not-so-much-as-the-before-mentio­ned keyboard.

There is a little doubt whether this is actually my oldest surviving cover. I also did "Waiting for another chance" by Endgames the same weekend. But I'm not sure which one I did first. My oldest cover doesn't exist anymore. I remember doing 'Kissing in the back row of the movies' on a Philips N4407 as a multiplay project. But I must have erased that since I couldn't find it anywhere."
