It seems like I told pretty much everyone that came within 10 feet of me during the early ’00s that once upon a time I made up some music for non-existent porno films. Yes, I really was that interesting back then. Few got to experience the actual sonics though, unfortunately. Anyway- as of today ALL THAT CHANGES!! Yes, the nostalgic/archive plundering madness continues with this release, which consists of the original “Porn Music…” MIDI ‘trilogy’ from spring 2002, plus a brand new stretch of surging, pulsing power drone made up of heavily modified elements from said trilogy, plus other bits and pieces rescued from stray floppy disks in 2001/2002.
