the value of suffering

Rob's History page 2 - The Value of Suffering (1989-95)

During these years the anguish gradually faded and the haircuts became slightly smaller in size.
 

general

About three albums worth of material were recorded during this time period - my extreme disillusionment with all forms of commercialism made it impossible for me to profit from my songs. They begged, they pleaded, they broke in and tried to steal the master tapes but I never released any of it....I knew one day I would be able to distribute without the greed of Record Companies overshadowing my Art. So send me a large postal order and I'll mail you a CD.

 

equipment used

Yamaha QY10 for sequencing and tone-generation. It seems laughable now but it was all I had. The Casio was still in great use during this time. As well as the aforementioned black guitar I also aquired a slightly more usable red 12 string strat copy and an OK sort of Bass. The same old FX were used along with a Boss Dig. Reverb / Delay and an archaic JSH analogue delay box. I eventually progressed to using an Atari ST for sequencing and a Casio SA-1 for very crude sampling.
