"The Amiga Works" by Allister Brimble

Friday, 2 November 2012
Allister Brimble has just launched a Kickstarter project for his new double album "The Amiga Works". He will create up to date CD quality versions and remixes of his best musical works from the Commodore Amiga. The album artwork and an A2 poster will be designed by Rico Holmes who was the inspiration and artist behind the original Alien Breed series and other Team 17 games. Visit Allister's Kickstarter page.

I have received many requests to create new versions of my tracks in the past, but I never felt I could improve on them.. until now. The technology exists to inspire me to create new versions of my tunes for these much loved games from the Commodore Amiga.
- Allister Brimble

As big fans of his work over here at ExoticA we are very excited about this project. We recommend you get over to the project page now and make a pledge!

Turrican Soundtrack Anthology

Thursday, 17 May 2012
This news is a bit old sorry - but Chris Huelsbeck created a Kickstarter project to raise money to fund a Turrican Soundtrack Anthology. The target has already been reached, but you can still pledge for 17 days more to get exclusive and limited items or to add your support to the project.

There was also a radio show on SceneSat Radio that had an extensive and very interesting interview with Chris about the project and his past work. You can listen to it on their ReLive system or download the episode from their archive.

Bitfellas also just released a Turrican Special podcast - which you can download over at the Bitfellas site or watch/listen on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb8_TFR0VAU

Apologies for the lack of updates (again). Lack of free time etc.

Happy Xmas and HVSC Update #56

Tuesday, 27 December 2011
Hope you all had a nice Xmas. The HVSC Team has released v56 of their C64 Music Collection. You can download from our mirror as well as using the web based search interface to stream the music as mp3/ogg. Not much else to report, and it is a little quiet around here, as BuZz has been busy with other projects. The site was recently updated to the newest MediaWiki release though. Perhaps 2012 will be a busier year here, but don't forget - the site is a wiki, so feel free to correct/improve/add information yourself. Have a good new year, and see you in the next news.
