After the downfall of Megaupload I’ve had to re-upload all of the previously uploaded Master Scratch Tapes that I have Cleaned and Remastered. Plus I have finally finished what was left from the NG83 community. I would like to send a special thanks to all who have contributed to providing the source material for this project especially to Phil Littlechild for keeping it real with the Pie.N.Ears Blog and uploading help etc…
You can now find all of our hard work here at Pie.N.Ears

Psy Tek has put alot of hard work into cleaning up the 28 year old MasterScratch tapes from Nottinghams Rock City days. Anyone who has tried to convert old tapes from the 80s or 90s to mp3 knows what quality to expect, with a lot of hard work and effort , its possible to get them sounding as new.
Here are his latest volumes of the cleaned up versions.
Both sides of the tapes are in one zip file.

On Friday 4th February 2011 HOC Sound System put their 7KWatt Logic System PA into the Osborne Suite of the Albert Hall Nottingham. The system was hired for a live band that was backing for a female vocalist. This was the full 6 speaker system into a 250 to 350 capacity venue. Needles to say the Chevin Research amplifiers were not turned up anywhere near their maximum as this was a posh affair full of Law folk and such and we didn’t want to scare anyone.
