This is the first in a series of posts in which I dig deep into the archives of obscure music that I’ve made. The first goes back about as far as possible to one of the first things I can remember doing, like all my music of the era it had no title when recorded, but retrospectively is called Original Axolotl since it was later turned into a song called Axolotl by a band called Bill Yakshard (whose one and only appearance was at the UNSW band competition in 1997). This recording is older, from some time in ’96 but I think it was around for a couple of years before that. It is uncharacteristic for my music at the time, mostly in it’s catchiness, in hindsight I can’t help but feel it was inspired to some extent by the theme music to Barney Miller. Here is the mp3, click on the play icon on the embedded flash player to listen.
