Free Album: Airstrip One – Decathlon – 2004

February 25, 2010

We used to have a myspace page, but one day we woke up and *poof* it was gone like Kaiser Soze. No idea how or why it happened. This means that there is no music by Airstrip One available online. Until now.

Back in 2004, the world was a simpler place: the LUAS was still under construction; iPhones were yet to be invented; Kelis was singing about milkshakes and The Simpsons was still funny. People were wondering what exactly Bill Murray said to Scarlet Johansson at the end of Lost in Translation, and wireless networking was something ham-radio enthusiasts did in a desperate attempt to get a girlfriend.

In about 48-hours of creative madness we managed to lash together a sports-based concept album, and lo, Decathlon was born. Amazingly, we somehow did this without using any computers at all.

Now you can download your own copy of this lo-fi electro classic completely gratis. Just click here.

In case you prefer our other stuff, we intend to have a myspace page up and running again in the near future.


Tunng – Bullets

Cold weather makes pleasant videos and catchy sunny tunes an important part of the weekend.

So, here you go.  Lots of na, na, na-ing and other nice little hooks in this…

In other ASO related news, James and I have actually managed to write some new music…which can be found at our myspace page.

Back in the earlier days of our musical career James and I appeared in a charming quintet named Murdock. We did a pretty good cover of this (one of our ‘fans’ actually said it was better than the Beatles version, which it wasn’t) but we never needed the words written on a piece of tatty paper like John and Paul here.

For the records, we were joined in those early days by Paul ‘Cheesy Oasis Solos’ Spencer & Robert ‘I sure know my way around a mean backbeat’ Chadwick. Good times

Hey there,

Just set this up so we don’t let things lapse for too long. The current state of play is that we have about 7 or 8 tunes and are working towards putting out a self produced EP. We’ll try to keep this up to date with any major or minor developments to do with our output. We’ll also be giving you some rants, raves and links to keep you entertained in the meantime.

 I was back in Ireland last week and put in some serious work on a new tune with Ian. It’s up on the myspace page under the working title ‘Why, That’s Delightful’ (after Graham Linehan’s super-cool blog).

You can hear it at http://www.myspace.com/airstrip1

That’s all for now

Jim
