A few days ago we passed an important anniversary: it has been 25 years ago that
Back In Time was published by Chris Abbott, the first Commodore-64 remix album which was followed by several more in the series, and eventually spawned even live concerts and BIT Live parties, not to mention the most recent
8-Bit Symphony album where SID tunes were played by an actual, real symphonic orchestra. They can all trace their origins back to this little album that sold over 2500 copies - and what a journey it has been over those 25 years! So, please, take a moment to reflect on this momentous occasion and join us in congratulating
Back In Time on its 25th anniversary!
A new year, a new remix album! From the official description:
A collection of 10 reimagined SID chip classics from the mind behind the dancing badgers and those wobbling egg chaps.
Featuring tracks by Rob Hubbard, Mark Cooksey, Ben Daglish, Matt Gray, and Martin Galway, including Lightforce, Crazy Comets, Delta+, Bombjack, Firelord, Quedex, Sanxion, IK+, Arkanoid, and Parallax.
Available in three flavours: Audio CD, Audio CD plus Digital Download, and Audio CD plus Digital Download and Signed Postcard.
The Danish band PRESS PLAY ON TAPE will put on a live rock performance of classic computer game tunes from Commodore 64, Nintendo NES and other geeky retro music performed alongside a video backdrop of the old games. Guaranteed to be a geeky experience.

Bastard Café, Huset-KBH, Rådhusstræde 13, 1466 Copenhagen, Denmark
Xenon (4th Floor)
Time: Saturday the 28th January 22.30
