Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Drop a couple of tabs of good ole LSD

Posting this up for a friend Kibburrus the Rude Druid who recently touched down here in Sack’a’tomatoes for a brief recline.

This is the first of 3 double cd sets, all to be released under the "Origin.." title, which chronicle the Infinite Beat (1987-1992) era of Psychic TV. Most of these songs were originally released in the early 90's by WaxTrax! Records as Towards the Infinite Beat & Beyond Thee Infinite Beat both recorded in their entirety at The Beat Farm Studios, London during the period January 1st 1990 to January 23rd 1990. Several previously unreleased remixes & live tracks are added here, appearing for the first time.

Tom Schulte from Allmusic describes it succinctly:

Allowing full immersion of this suggestive, cryptic, neo-psychedelic beat music is truly a mind altering experience. A couple hours after partaking of these doses, one can be assured that Psychic TV aspired, and often succeeded at employing guitars, drums, keyboards and sequenced sounds re-creating an expansive, hallucinogenic, paradigm-challenging drug experience. That you can dance to.
In this incarnation, PsTV is Genesis P-Orridge – vocals, sampler, electric violin, & keyboards; Fred Giannelli – guitars, sampler, keyboards; Sean Maher – post-modernist funk rhythm guitar; Dave Ball – sampler & keyboards; Gini Ball – violin; Richard Schiessl – sampler; & Matthew ‘DJ Global’ Best – drums & keyboards.

  1. 1st Tab
    2nd Tab

  2. CD one ... same tracks as the Second ! Please can you change and upload the CD one !

    1. At first glance, tab 1 - 155.0MB --- tab 2 - 170.1MB
      Kinda hard to believe they are both the same, but I’ll download them & check.
      Tab 1 – 9 tracks beginning with “In the Beginning” that sounds right
      Tab 2 – 9 tracks beginning with “I.C. Water” – ditto
      Maybe I just named the tracks wrong & resized them wrong & they are rally both the same. Guess I’ll give them a listen…
      “In the Beginning” – 1:23 - going on about 'ever experience?'
      “I.C. Water” – 8:42 & singing about ‘water’.
      Final Answer – they are not the same…I think that at some point since May 8, 2014
      someone might have mentioned the mistake before now.
      I tried everything I could.
      I think you need to try again.
